Mayte Garcia penning memoir

Mayte Garcia penning memoir

Prince's first wife Mayte Garcia is writing an "intimate memoir".

The 42-year-old star will be releasing a book called 'The Most Beautiful' in April 2017, where she will share the "highs and lows' of her relationship with the singer and the "almost otherworldly connection" they had with each other.

Meanwhile, Mayte recently showed off a tattoo which she got in honour of her late former husband.

Sharing a video of the design previously, she wrote: "This makes me smile and cry... Love is eternal!! Will remember that every time I look at my hand. To all of you who are hurting .... I'm sorry for your pain as well!! But love him for eternity! Thank you @nspired1 for making such a beautiful piece and @luvinflyingcolors for making such a beautiful video! I'm smiling with tears! And thank you TAC cream for making it painless (sic)"

And Mayte recently revealed she would like for Prince's fans to remember his birthday in June every year by not eating animal products.

She shared: "Prince didn't want to celebrate birthdays, but to live life, to elevate and educate to the next level of enlightenment.

"My mission every 7 June is not only to celebrate his birth, but also with Peta to remember this man by making 7 June a day where Prince fans go vegan to see how much better they feel and to honour his kind legacy."

Prince tragically passed away from a fentanyl overdose at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota in April at the age of 57.
