Pop hits and Purple Rain on display as the personal mementos of the late music icon Prince hit London. The display traveling some 4,000 miles from his former home in Minnesota to the UK and bringing his handwritten music notes, famous Cloud guitars and, of course, that purple outfit. His sister Tyka Nelson telling us, it's been an emotional journey.
>> Yesterday it was extremely difficult. I didn't make it maybe 10, 15 steps, if that, started crying, had to go back out. Came back in, maybe made 20, 25 steps, cried, had to go back out. So it was hard yesterday. This feels like home today.>> I'm Reuters Jayson Mansaray at The O2 arena in London, where over 200 items from Prince's Paisley Park estate have gone on display less than two years after the singer's death.
Now that's thanks in part to the estate's head of archives, Angie Marchese, but also thanks to Prince himself. The artist left detailed instruction on just how he'd like everything to be displayed. The exhibition creators say Prince actually laid the groundwork when he planned for his estate to be opened up for tours over a decade ago.
And that his family played a role in finalizing the plans after he died of a drug overdose in 2016, hoping to offer a glimpse into the reclusive artist's more private side. Tyka also told us that rumors of a family feud regarding the estate were exaggerated, and that nothing had changed within the family.
>> Nothing's changed between us, that's crazy. Why would it change? Those are my brothers.
