Peaches' Funeral At Same Church As Her Mother's

Peaches Geldof's funeral will be held at the same church where her mother Paula Yates' took place.

The 25-year-old model and TV presenter also married musician Tom Cohen, the father of her two children, at the Kent church.

The family says the funeral on Easter Monday will be a private event.

The daughter of Bob Geldof and Yates was was found dead at her home on April 7, leaving two young son, Astala, aged 23 months, and 11-month-old Phaedra.

Her death is being treated as a "non-suspicious, unexplained, sudden death".

A post-mortem examination was inconclusive and toxicology tests are being carried out to establish a cause of death.

She was just 11 when her mother died from an accidental heroin overdose in 2000, aged 41.

The last tweet she posted on the day before she died was a picture of herself as a child with her mother, with the message "me and my mum".

She often spoke about her struggle to cope with her parents' break-up when she was seven and admitted to experimenting with drugs during her teenage years.

In an interview for Aga Living Magazine, published in the Sunday Times, Ms Geldof said she felt her TV presenter mother was "living through me all the time because we are just so similar".

She said: "I'm not sure I've yet fully made peace with my childhood, but with my mum I have come to terms with everything.

"She had a really difficult time. There are so many parallels between us. Now I can understand everything.

"I think you have to experience hardships and pain yourself to fully understand people who have been through it, and also you can never really experience happiness unless you've had that down feeling too.

"Sometimes it's enjoyable to be a bit depressive, I think."
