Peaches Geldof's ashes to be scattered alongside her mum's

Peaches Geldof's ashes will be scattered alongside her mother's.

The late 25-year-old star will be laid to rest in the grounds of the gardens of Davington Priory, Kent - where her childhood home stood - as it held a special place in her heart following Paula Yates' own funeral at the nearby St. Mary Magdalene church.

A source told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "Peaches' happiest memories were there - there would have been no other place to hold the funeral and have her ashes scattered. The family were all so happy there - it was just idyllic."

The decision was reportedly made after discussions between her husband Thomas Cohen, father Sir Bob Geldof and sisters Fifa, 31, Pixie, 24 and 17-year-old Tiger.

Peaches' old nanny Anita Debney was also involved in the talks, and she recently paid tribute to the late star on Instagram.

In a separate report, Peaches was planning a secret Australian TV project just weeks before her death. It has been revealed she was hoping to spend three months Down Under to film a new TV show.

Speaking to Aga Living Magazine prior to her death, she said: "I can't say what it is yet, but I'll be there for three months. The babies will come with me because obviously I wouldn't leave them for that long."

The mum-of-two also elaborated upon her attachment parenting beliefs in one of her last interviews, explaining why she never left her children Astala, 23 months, and 11-month-old Phaedra - who she had with her husband Thomas Cohen - to cry alone.

She explained: "When babies are crying, they are too young to understand you haven't left them forever, so they are terrified."

The star's youngest son was tragically found at her side after her death and insiders hope her family will take "comfort" from the fact she didn't die alone.

A source said: "The hope is that Phaedra is so young he wasn't aware of what was going on. The most important thing is that he's OK. It is devastating for Tom that he wasn't there but it couldn't have been avoided."

Peaches' body has now been released by coroners so plans for her funeral can be made. Her cause of death remains unexplained.
