Peaches Geldof Funeral To Be Attended By Stars

Sir Bob Geldof is expected to pay tribute to his daughter Peaches as a host of stars from the music world attend her funeral.

They will gather to remember Ms Geldof in private at the same church where the funeral of her mother Paula Yates was held in 2000.

St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence Church in the village of Davington, near Faversham, Kent, is where the 25-year-old married musician Tom Cohen, the father of her children, in 2012.

The church is also where her mother - who died from an accidental heroin overdose - married Boomtown Rats singer Geldof in 1986.

Mystery still surrounds the sudden death of Ms Geldof on April 7.

The broadcaster, model and socialite's body was found at the Wrotham, Kent, home she shared with her husband and their children after officers were called "following a report of concern for the welfare of a woman".

Sir Bob paid tribute to his daughter alongside his partner Jeanne Marine, and Ms Geldof's sisters Fifi Trixibelle, Pixie and Tiger, saying she was the "wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us".

Her older sister Fifi posted a picture of the siblings together on Instagram and wrote: "My beautiful baby sister ... Gone but never forgotten. I love you, Peaches x".

Ms Geldof had two sons with Mr Cohen - Astala, 23 months and Phaedra, 11 months.

Kent Police said her death was being treated as "non-suspicious" and "unexplained".

An inquest is not expected to be opened and adjourned by the coroner until after the results of toxicology tests are known.

Ms Geldof was 11 when her mother died from an accidental heroin overdose at the age of 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.
