Peaches Geldof funeral set for Monday

LONDON (AFP) - The funeral of Bob Geldof's daughter Peaches will take place on Monday at the same church where her mother Paula Yates' funeral was held, the family said on Friday.

The church in Kent, south-east England, is also where the 25-year-old television presenter and socialite married musician Tom Cohen, the father of her two young children, in 2012.

It was also the venue for the marriage of Bob Geldof - who organised the Live Aid concert to raise money for the victims of the Ethiopian famine in 1985 - and Yates in 1986.

The Geldof family said the service on Easter Monday would be a private affair.

Peaches Geldof was found dead at her home in Kent on April 7, leaving two sons aged 23 months and 11 months.

Police have described her death as "non-suspicious" but "unexplained". A post-mortem failed to establish a cause of death and toxicology tests are being carried out.

Peaches' mother died from a heroin overdose in 2000, aged 41.
