Peaches Geldof funeral: Private ceremony to be held at same place as her mother Paula Yates on Easter Monday

The service will take place in the same church as her mother Paula Yates's funeral was held in 2000

The family and friends of Peaches Geldof will be granted the opportunity to say a final farewell to the socialite at a private funeral service to be held on Easter Monday at the same church as her mother Paula Yates was remembered in September 2000.

A service for the late socialite, who was found dead by her police at her home in Kent on Monday 7 April, will take place at St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence Church in Davington, near Faversham, Kent.

UPDATE: Peaches Geldof's Cause Of Death Confirmed

The mother-of-two was found dead by police at her home in Kent on Monday 7 April.

A post mortem carried out last week was ruled inconclusive, pending the results of further toxicology tests.

Officers will continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding her death, although they are not treating it as suspicious.

They are, however, treating her passing as “sudden” and “ unexplained”.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Geldof w as in secret talks with the producers of talent show Australia’s Next Top Model for a high-profile judging role, following the tragic death of model mentor Charlotte Dawson, who took her own life in February.

 

The socialite, who had worked as a journalist and a presenter, was one of a number of candidates shortlisted for a role in the forthcoming ninth season of the show, the Sydney Morning Herald has confirmed.

Speaking to the Sunday Times, in an interview conducted earlier this year but published this week, Geldof revealed that she was looking forward to moving to Australia with her family for three months to work on an unnamed television project.

“I can't say what it is yet, but I'll be there for three months,”G she said. “Of course [my children] will come with me because obviously I wouldn't leave them for that long.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Peaches talked about coming to terms with her traumatic childhood and expressed her hopes for the future.

 “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.”

Her final magazine column, she describes the “perfect life” balance she achieved since turning her back on her former hard-partying ways and becoming a parent.

“Before having two fat little cherubs under two (who expect attention and military-esque devotion to their every need 24 hours a day), I lived a life of wanton wanderlust,” she wrote for Mother & Baby magazine. “With fun-loving friends from Los Angeles to London, I was lost in a haze of youth and no responsibilities.

“Other than work, there was nothing stopping me from having constant fun. But it was becoming boring. I wanted an anchor – I craved it. And, when I had two wailing, smiling, joyful little blobs of waddling pink flesh, they became my entire existence, and saved me from one of pure apathy.”

She is survived by her two sons - Astala, 23 months, and Phaedra, 11 months – and her husband Thomas Cohen.
