Prince's sister ''sensed'' he was going to die three years before he passed away.

The 'Purple Rain' hitmaker died in April 2016 at the age of 57 from a Fentanyl overdose and his sister Tyka Nelson has now revealed that she predicted he was going to pass away as he told her he had ''done everything he's come to do'' in an emotional chat in 2014.

Sharing their conversation, she said: ''I was at McDonalds and I got a phone call from an unknown number. He said, 'Is this Tyka? It's Prince here', and I said, 'After all this time I know your voice, I know who you are.' We were just walking and talking and he said, 'I think I've done everything I've come to do', so that was him telling me it was time.

''I thought I'm going to buy earrings for his funeral, I'm buying a necklace for his funeral and I'm planning this, I'm telling all my relatives Prince is passing, and so it took an actual three years from the time I got the call at McDonalds. So when I got the call that he had passed, I knew immediately what they meant because I was just kind of waiting for that day. I don't know if it's Native American history - we do sense things as a people.''

And Tyka admits she had the ''hardest time'' coming to terms with his tragic passing but insists she is slowly learning to cope with it better.

Speaking on ITV's Lorraine, she added: ''I had the hardest time [out of all her siblings]. We had spent all of our lives together. It probably only hit me last October. I still have my days, but it's getting better. I can see myself at the concert, the first time I heard the demo tape.

''This is the first time I've not used drugs and alcohol to mask the pain of grief. This is the first time what I'm feeling has come out in music, not drugs and alcohol.''
