Grieving dad Sir Bob, 62, will give the eulogy at the ceremony, which will be a private affair for friends and family.

The mass will be held at a church near Davington Priory, the family home in Kent.

An insider said: “Bob is keen to speak as he did at the funeral of Paula and his dad Bob Snr in Dublin, but he knows it won’t be easy.

“The family are completely exhausted and trying to organise a memorable final farewell for Peaches.”

Relatives will gather at the country churchyard where the former wild child, 25, was baptised and married husband Thomas Cohen in 2012.

Her body, which was released back to the family last Thursday, will be brought to the church on Monday morning ahead of the ceremony.

The funeral mass will be invite-only — similar to that of tragic TV presenter Paula, who died in 2000.

Peaches is expected to be cremated and her ashes scattered in the family home grounds where she grew up.

Thomas, Sir Bob and sisters Fifi, 31, Pixie, 23, and Tiger, 17, have discussed the plan with her old nanny Anita Debney.

Mum-of-two Peaches was found dead with 11-month-old son Phaedra by her side at her home in Wrotham, Kent, after Thomas raised the alarm when she failed to answer his phone calls.

Her other son Astala, 23 months, was believed to be with his dad, who was staying with his own parents.

Peaches’ family are now awaiting the results of toxicology tests after an inconclusive post-mortem last week.

No suicide note or drugs were found at the scene by police.

The Sun told yesterday how Peaches had talks with TV producers over a role on Australia’s Next Top Model.
