The loved ones of Peaches Geldof gathered today to bid a final and heartbreaking farewell to the young mum.
Bob Geldof is thought to have led tributes to his daughter at the private service in the same church where the funeral of her mother Paula Yates was held - St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence church in the village of Davington in Kent.
Just before 1pm today, a hearse carrying Peaches’ coffin arrived outside the church, which is next to the country estate where Peaches grew up.
The coffin was painted sky blue, with clouds and flowers along the side and a beautiful picture of Peaches’ family and pets at the back.
Crowds of locals gathered outside the church, which is where the 25-year-old mum married musician Tom Cohen, the father of her children, in 2012.
It is also where television presenter Paula married Geldof in 1986.
There were bouquets and cards left outside the entrance to the estate’s driveway.
Peaches’ ashes are expected to be scattered in the property’s garden where she played as a child.
Written in chalk on the church’s wall, a message read “RIP Peaches”.
Mystery still surrounds the death of the mum-of-two on April 7th.
Her body was found at the home she shared with her husband and their two young sons, Astala, 23 months, and 11-month-old Phaedra in Kent.
Kent Police said it was being treated as a “non-suspicious, unexplained sudden death”.
An inquest is not expected to be opened by the coroner until after the results of toxicology tests are known.
