The elder sister of Peaches Geldof paid tribute to the 25-year-old mother-of-two as it was confirmed that a post-mortem examination will be carried out today to establish what caused her sudden death.
Fifi Trixibelle Geldof posted a picture on website Instagram of the two of them together when they were young children and wrote: ‘’My beautiful baby sister.... Gone but never forgotten. I love you Peaches x.’’
Ms Geldof was found dead at her home in Wrotham, Kent, on Monday after officers were called “following a report of concern for the welfare of a woman”, a Kent Police spokesman said.
A Kent County Council spokesman said Ms Geldof’s body has been transferred to Darent Valley Hospital, Dartford, where the examination will take place today
A coroner will open an investigation after the results of the initial post-mortem examination have been received.
A decision on whether to hold an inquest will be made depending on the final results of the post mortem, which could take several weeks.
Ms Geldof was a prolific tweeter and the final message she sent on Sunday was a picture of her as a child with her mother, Paula Yates, with the message “me and my mum”.
Ms Geldof was just 11 years old when Ms Yates died from an accidental heroin overdose in 2000, aged 41.
Yates had divorced Bob Geldof in 1996 after forming a relationship with INXS frontman Michael Hutchence.
Ms Geldof had two young sons with her second husband, musician Tom Cohen.
Shortly after news of the tragic death broke, Bob Geldof released a touching tribute in which he relayed how the family were suffering “beyond pain” and will “cherish her forever”.
