Peaches Geldof funeral: Sir Bob will pay tribute to ‘wonderful daughter, wife and mother’

Peaches Geldof‘s father, Sir Bob Geldof, is to lead the tributes to his daughter at her funeral on Easter Monday.

The tributes are reportedly set to echo the praise he gave his daughter at her wedding at the same church, St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence Church in Davington, near Faversham, Kent, just two years ago.

Peaches’ sister, Pixie, 23, is said to be preparing to speak at the funeral after her father, if she feels up to it, according to The Sun newspaper.

Peaches, a 25-year-old model, television show host and writer, died on April 7 at her home in Kent. Police said a post-mortem examination did not reveal the cause, and a toxicology report could take several weeks.

The funeral will be a private affair, by invitation only. Sir Bob and other family members have been seen over the past few days staying at his country home, Davington Priory, which is next to the church.

Those invited to attend the funeral service will be able to gather in the grounds of Sir Bob’s home and use a side gate which leads directly into the church, avoiding the gaze of any media or members of the public.

It is understood the funeral service will be held somewhere between 11.00am and 1.00pm, but it is not known yet if there will be a burial or cremation.

According to the Sunday People, widowed Thomas Cohen is looking to put the £1million family home in Wrotham, Kent on the market immediately.

A source told the publication: “Tom has said that he can’t return to the house, he wants to immediately sell the place and move. It is just too heartbreaking for him to live in the house where his beloved wife died.”
