Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof

13 March 1989 – 7 April 2014

Geldof was born in London in 1989, the second daughter of Bob Geldof and Paula Yates and the granddaughter of Hughie Green. Her sisters were Fifi Trixibelle Geldof and Pixie Geldof. She also had a younger half-sister, Tiger Lily Hutchence Geldof.

She grew up in Chelsea, London, and Faversham, Kent, and was educated at Queen's College, London. After moving out of her father's house at eighteen, Peaches rented a flat in Islington, North London, but gave up her lease to move to New York with then-husband, Max Drummey.

Geldof wrote a magazine column for the UK edition of Elle Girl, starting with its April 2004 issue and continuing until the magazine folded in October 2005. From age 14–17 she wrote a weekly socio-political column for The Daily Telegraph, and wrote numerous articles for The Guardian.

Geldof wrote and presented her own documentary TV programme, Peaches Geldof: Teenage Mind in 2005, which was followed up with Peaches Geldof: Teen America, which aired on Sky One in the UK on 1 March 2006. In 2006, Geldof was placed at number seven in the Tatler's list of Top Ten Fashion Icons for the year, the youngest person on the list. In 2007, readers of FHM voted her the 53rd sexiest woman in the world.

Peaches mother, TV presenter Paula Yates, died of an accidental drug overdose in September 2000. In September 2012 Geldof said she did not come to terms with her mother's death for several years. Peaches final tweet, posted on Sunday, linked to an Instagram picture of her, as a baby, in her mother's arms. The caption simply read: "Me and my mum." Geldof died aged 25 at her home in Wrotham, Kent and, at the time of the confirmation, the Kent Police statement read: "At this stage, the death is being treated as unexplained and sudden". Bob Geldof said in a statement, "We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us. We loved her and will cherish her forever".
