The funeral for Peaches Geldof took place today in southern England.

Her father Bob Geldof, The Rolling Stones' Bill Wyman and Kate Moss all came to Davington Priory estate to pay their respects to Peaches, who died at age 25 earlier this month, according to the Associated Press.

The church is the same where Geldof married Tom Cohen in 2012 and where her mother Paula Yates was also laid to rest in 2000.

At the time of her death, her father released a statement: "We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us."

Police confirmed to the BBC that they were called to an address near Wrotham, Kent, in England, to check on a woman. She was later pronounced dead by South East Coast Ambulance Service, police said.

Geldof is survived by her husband and their two sons, Astala, 2, and Phaedra, 1.
