Peaches' funeral to take place on Monday; Bob Geldof to give eulogy

Peaches Geldof's funeral will take place on Easter Monday.

The body of the 25-year-old will be laid to rest at the country church of St Mary Magdalene in Davington, Kent, South East England, where her late mother Paula Yates was buried in 2000.

Bob Geldof will give a eulogy at the service, which will be invite-only - similar to Paula's ceremony 14 years ago - for friends and family.

An insider told The Sun newspaper: "Bob is keen to speak as he did at the funeral of Paula and his dad Bob Snr in Dublin, but he knows it won't be easy.

"The family are completely exhausted and trying to organise a memorable final farewell for Peaches."

Peaches' body, which was released to her family by the coroner last Thursday will be taken to the church - where the star was also christened and married in 2012 - ahead of the Mass next week.

It is believed her body will be cremated and her ashes will be scattered alongside her mother's at her family home, the gardens of Davington Priory, Kent, where she grew up.

Peaches was found dead at the home she shared with husband Thomas Cohen and their sons Astala, 23 months, and Phaedra, 11 months, in Wrotham, Kent, on April 7 after Thomas raised the alarm when she failed to answer his calls.

Peaches' devastated family, including sisters Fifi, 31, Pixie, 23, and half-sister Tiger, 17, are now awaiting the results of toxicology tests, which could take weeks, after an inconclusive post-mortem last week.
