Peaches Geldof’s sister Fifi Trixibelle engaged: PR executive announces plans to marry busker days after Sir Bob Geldof’s engagement

Their happy news follows an inquest into the sudden death of Peaches Geldof last week

Just days after Sir Bob Geldof’s plans to marry is partner of 18 years, French actress Jeanne Marine, became public knowledge, his eldest daughter, Fifi Trixibelle, has announced her engagement to her busker boyfriend, 33-year-old Andrew Robertson.

“They’re going to hold the wedding in July next year,” a friend of the 31-year-old PR executive told the Daily Mail.

“I think we all need a happy family event now,” another apparently added.

Fifi, who has been dating the “sand artist and busker” for around a year, seemingly confirmed the reports by posting a photograph of her diamond engagement ring on Instagram, with the accompanying caption, “Boydonegood[sic]”.

Sir Bob Geldof’s engagement was revealed by Jeanne Marine’s close friend, the supermodel Gerry Hall, last week.

 

“Bob has proposed. She is over the moon,” she said.

“Jeanne Marine has been a rock and a tower of strength over this. I’m so excited for her I am bursting to tell someone.”

“Bob and Jeanne have been through hell, but they are determined something positive will come out of it.

Fifi Trixibelle posted an image of her diamond cut engagement ring on Instagram Fifi Trixibelle posted an image of her diamond cut engagement ring on Instagram “After all the sadness, we need something to focus on which will bring joy and light.”

The engagement spate comes after a preliminary inquest into the sudden passing of Peaches Geldof ruled that levels of heroin found in her body would have been a “likely” contributing factor to her death.

The mother-of-two was discovered by her husband Thomas Cohen and his mother  at their £1million home in Wrotham, Kent on 7 April.

The scene drew comparisons to the death of Peaches’ mother, Paula Yates, who was similarly found dead in her home in Notting Hill in 2000 after suffering a heroin overdose.

The inquest, which was opened in Gravesend, Kent, has been adjourned until July 2014.
