Peaches Geldof will reportedly be laid to rest on Easter Monday.

The mum-of-two passed away on April 7th at the age of 25.

She was found at her home in Kent, London.

It has been reported that she will be laid to rest on Easter Monday, at the same church where her mother Paula Yates' funeral was held when she died of an accidental drug overdose 14 years ago.

Her father Bob Geldof (62) is keen to eulogise his late daughter at the ceremony, similar to the speeches he made at the service honouring his late ex-wife Paula and his father, Bob Sr in Dublin, when he passed away in 2012.

The St Mary Magdalene church in Kent, where her service is believed to be held, was the venue for her 2012 wedding to her musician husband Tom Cohen.

The ceremony will be private and it is a service being provided exclusively for friends and family to mourn her.

Peaches is left behind by two sons, Astala, 23 months, and 11-month-old Phaedra, with her husband Thomas.

According to The Sun newspaper, Peaches will be cremated with her ashes being spread around her childhood home.

After an inconclusive autopsy, her family are now awaiting results of a postmortem toxicology examination, which can take up to five weeks, in order to determine her cause of death, which is still unclear.

Her husband Thomas initially raised the alarm when she had not returned any of his calls on the day of her death.

Police have not deemed the circumstances to be suspicious.

She also leaves behind three sisters Fifi (31) Pixie (23), and Tiger (17).

In her last interview, Peaches revealed she had not yet made peace with her troublesome childhood, including the tragic death of her mother.

But she was happier than ever a mum of two, even expressing her desire to expand her brood and have a baby girl.

"Now I am a mum I can correct those awful parts of my childhood and it's a real healing process," she said.

"Before, I was not at peace with myself about it because I was just traumatised."

"That's why I was living such a chaotic lifestyle. But now I have the kids, I can heal the situation. It's so good in every single way."

"I want it to be a progressive household where they can come and talk to us about anything. The way I've been raising them is with pure love," she said.

"I just have a lot of hopes for them, really, and I hope when they're older they get to have a bit of the youth that I lost out on when I had them."
