Peaches Geldof's funeral will take place today.

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

Peaches' father Sir Bob Geldof, 62, will give a eulogy at the service, which will be invitation-only for friends and family - similar to Yates' ceremony 14 years ago.

"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," an insider told The Sun newspaper.

"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 several days after her death two weeks ago, will be taken to the church - where she was also christened and married in 2012 - before the mass.

It is believed her body will be cremated and her ashes will be scattered alongside her mother's at her family home in Kent.

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

Peaches' devastated family are now awaiting the results of toxicology tests after an inconclusive autopsy.
