The 60-year-old former supermodel posted a simple message on her official Twitter page that read: "Love & gratitude".

On Tuesday, Iman was spotted walking the family dog in New York City.

The couple were married in 1992, two years after they met.

In his last days, Iman posted a series of emotional updates on social media.

"The struggle is real, but so is God," read one unattributed quote posted to her Instagram account on the day Bowie died after an 18-month battle with cancer.

The late rock star's estate, said to be worth around 100m dollars (£70m), will be divided mainly between Iman, son Duncan and daughter Alexandria Zahra Jones.

"I fell in love with David Jones," she told The Independent in 2014.

"I did not fall in love with David Bowie. Bowie is just a persona. He's a singer, an entertainer. David Jones is a man I met."
