Michelle Williams and her two-year-old daughter arrived in Perth, Australia, Wednesday afternoon local time for Heath Ledger’s funeral.
Michelle, wearing a black dress and black sunglasses, held the striped-dress-clad Matilda in her arms as they exited the plane under heavy security. Matilda clung to a stuffed rabbit as more than five police officers and airport security escorted them into an elevator.
From the airport, Michelle and Matilda (who was covered with a blanket) headed to Heath’s mom’s house in the suburb of Applecross. Soon afterward, guests began dropping by to pay their respects.
A private funeral for the actor – who was found dead in his Manhattan apartment on January 22nd – is expected to take place on Saturday.
Although Michelle and Heath (who met while filming Brokeback Mountain) split last September, the two remained bonded by love for their daughter. In a statement released after his death, the actress said, “My heart is broken.”
