"At this stage, the death is being treated as unexplained and sudden," said a statement from Kent Police, via BBC News. Peaches' cause of death is currently unconfirmed. Married to S.C.U.M rocker Thomas Cohen, Peaches had two sons, Astala, one, and Phaedra, who will turn one on the 24th April.
She lost her own mother Paula Yates, who died of a drug overdose in September 2000, aged just 41 years old. Geldof said she had experimented with drugs as a teenager, but was "never that wild." As Bob Geldof's daughter, Peaches spent a lot of her life under the scrutiny of the media, with her weight and slim physique a particularly recurrent target for many tabloids.
Peaches Was Married To S.C.U.M Singer, Thomas Cohen.
She left home at sixteen and worked as a contributor to The Telegraph and the Guardian, and presented TV shows including ITV2's OMG! with Peaches Geldof. Having being pictured regularly on the party scene, Peaches transformed her image when she began having children. She also worked as a model and, just last week, attended a launch for Tesco's F&F clothing range in London where there was no obvious sign that she was unwell.
She regularly kept her fans updated on social media, using Instagram in particular to post photos and videos of her sons and pets. Her last post - a video of her sons playing - was just 24 hours ago and has since attracted hundreds of fan tributes and messages of condolence since the news of her death broke.

Speaking to Elle Magazine in 2013, Peaches revealed that it had taken her years to come to terms with her mother's death. "I remember the day my mother died, and it's still hard to talk about it. I just blocked it out. I went to school the next day because my father's mentality was 'keep calm and carry on'," she said.
"I didn't grieve. I didn't cry at her funeral. I couldn't express anything because I was just numb to it all. I didn't start grieving for my mother properly until I was maybe 16." Peaches Geldof is survived by her husband, her two sons, father Bob Geldof, sisters Fifi Trixibelle and Pixie, and younger half-sister, Tiger Lily Hutchence Geldof.
