A private funeral will be held for Peaches Geldof on Easter Monday at the Kent church where she was married.

It is also the same venue where the funeral for her late mother Paul Yates was held 14 years ago.

The body of Ms Geldof, a mother-of-two, was found at her home in Wrotham, Kent, on April 7.

Police have said the 25-year-old’s death is being treated as a "non-suspicious, unexplained sudden death".

A post-mortem examination at Darent Valley Hospital proved inconclusive and results of toxicology tests are expected in the coming weeks.

Shortly after her death, father Bob Geldof, said the family was "beyond pain", writing: "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us."

Peaches' husband, musician Tom Cohen, with whom she had two young sons, said his wife was adored by him and their two sons Astala, 23 months, and 11-month-old Phaedra, who he would bring up "with their mother in their hearts every day".

Elder sister Fifi posted a picture on Instagram of the two of them together when they were children, writing: ''My beautiful baby sister... Gone but never forgotten. I love you Peaches x.''

Peaches was just 11 when her mother, TV presenter Paula Yates, died from an accidental heroin overdose in 2000, aged 41.

She married US musician Max Drummey in Las Vegas in 2008, when she was 19, but the couple split amicably in February 2009 before divorcing in 2011.

She married Tom, lead singer of south-east London band Scum, in September 2012 at the church in Davington, Kent, where her parents married 26 years earlier. It was also where her mother's funeral was held.

A prolific tweeter, the final message she sent on April 6 was a picture of herself as a child with her mother, with the message "Me and my mum".

In a column for Mother & Baby magazine, she wrote how she was now "happier than ever" after becoming a mother.
