The funeral of Peaches Geldof has taken place today in a church near where she grew up in Kent.
The funeral of journalist and television personality Peaches Geldof has taken place today at the St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence Church in Davington, Kent. Mourners including Kate Moss and Sarah Ferguson came to pay tribute to the daughter of Bob Geldof who died suddenly on April 7th aged 25.
The funeral took place at the same church where Peaches married her husband, SCUM singer Thomas Cohen two years ago. It is also the same church where her mother Paula Yates was laid to rest in 2000 when Peaches was 11. During the private service, Bob Geldof was expected to give a eulogy paying tribute to Peaches whom he called the ''wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us'’.
A hearse carrying Peaches’ coffin had been pictured arriving at the church this afternoon. It was painted blue and pictured Peaches along with her husband Thomas Cohen, sons Astala and Phaedra and the family's pet dogs and cat.

25 year old Peaches died suddenly on April 7th at her home in Kent. Her cause of death is still unexplained as an autopsy proved inconclusive. Her death is said to be being treated as “non suspicious” whilst police await the results of toxicology tests due in the coming weeks.
The funeral was attended by friends of Peaches and the Geldof family including Kate Moss, The Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson, Jools Holland and DJ Nick Grimshaw. Her younger sister Pixie was thought to be speaking at the service alongside her father.
Peaches' sudden death still remains a mystery
At the time of her death Peaches had been enjoying a quiet family life with her husband and two young sons in Kent. Shortly before her tragic death she had written she was "happier than ever” with her new life as a wife and mother. Her ashes are expected to be scattered on the grounds of her father’s country estate in Davington where Peaches grew up.
