THE FUNERAL OF Peaches Geldof will take place later today at the same church where her mother Paula Yates’ funeral was held.

The church in Kent, southeast England, carries a long history for the family, and it was where the 25-year-old television presenter and socialite married musician Tom Cohen, the father of her two young children, in 2012.

It was also the venue for the marriage of Bob Geldof and Yates in 1986.

The Geldof family said the service today will be a private affair.

Peaches Geldof was found dead at her home in Kent on April 7, leaving two sons aged 23 months and 11 months.

Police have described her death as “non-suspicious” but “unexplained”. A post-mortem failed to establish a cause of death and toxicology tests are being carried out.

Peaches’ mother died from a heroin overdose in 2000, aged 41.
