Tragic Peaches Geldof was reportedly found dead with her baby son Phaedra by her side, it has emerged.
The 25-year-old, who grew up in Faversham, is said to have been discovered beside the 11-month-old in her Wrotham home.
She died on Monday - 14 years after her own mother Paula Yates was found dead from a heroin overdose with daughter Tiger Lily, then just four, next to her.
According to reports, Peaches' husband Tom is believed to have spent Sunday night away from their five-bedroom home in Fairseat Lane with their elder son Astala, 23 months.
He is said to have tried to phone the socialite daughter of Bob Geldof - before raising the alarm when she did not answer.
Police were called when a friend was sent to the house to check on her.
Officers are treating her death as "sudden" and "unexplained" - but not suspicious.
Peaches' body was released to her family yesterday so funeral arrangements can be made.
A post-mortem examination has proved inconclusive and further toxicology tests, which could take several weeks, are being carried out.
When the full post-mortem examination is complete, North West Kent coroner Roger Hatch will then decide if an inquest should be held in Gravesend.
Peaches, who was 11 when her mother died, uploaded a touching picture of the pair together on her Instagram account with the simple message: "Me and my mum" just hours before she died.
Her father Bob - who lives in Davington, near Faversham - said he is "beyond pain" and her older sister Fifi paid tribute to her with a touching photo of them as children.
Peaches followed in her parents' footsteps in 2012 when she married Tom at St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence church in Davington.
The village church was also where her mother's funeral was held in 2000.
It is thought to be the likely location for Peaches' funeral, with the Rev Tracey Bateson confirming she has been in touch with Bob "to offer my condolences".
