Friends And Family Gather For Peaches Geldof's Funeral

Friends and family have gathered in Davington, Kent to mourn the passing of Peaches Geldof, who was laid to rest today.
Her father, musician and philanthropist Sir Bob Geldof was expected to give a eulogy at the service along with Peaches’ younger sister, Pixie.
Sarah Ferguson, Kate Moss and former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman were also among the mourners, the BBC reports, along with Nick Grimshaw, Alexa Chung and Jamie Winstone.
Earlier today a hearse pulled into her father’s Davington estate, which is next to St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence Church where the funeral is being held, carrying a blue coffin painted with a picture of Peaches, her husband, Thomas Cohen, their two young sons and their pets.
It is the same church where Peaches married Cohen in 2012 and where her parents, Bob Geldof and television presenter Paula Yates married in 1986. Paula’s funeral was also held at the church in 2000, following an accidental overdose.
25-year-old Peaches died suddenly at her home in Kent two weeks ago, leaving behind her sons, Astala, 23 months, and 11-month-old Phaedra. Her cause of death is still unknown, as a post-mortem proved inconclusive and toxicology results are pending.
However police are treating the death as “non-suspicious and unexplained”.
