Thomas, 24, is believed to have struck up a close friendship with Peaches' father Bob Geldof in the last 12 months, and the pair are often seen together with the two boys as well as Peaches' younger sister Pixie. The musician is thought to be creating a photobook for his two sons to ensure they remember their late mother as they grow up.

Meanwhile Bob is reportedly planning to marry his partner Jeanne Marine this summer after a 19-year-relationship. According to reports, the Boomtown Rats singer will tie the knot at the St Mary Magdalene & St Lawrence Church in Faversham because of its importance to the family.

The church played host to Peaches' nuptials to Thomas in 2012, as well as her funeral in April 2014.

Bob is not the only member of the family planning to wed this year; Peaches' older sister Fifi will also tie the knot with her fiancé Andrew Robertson in the summer. The 32-year-old has spoken openly about her battle with depression since her sister's death, and paid tribute to Peaches with a throwback picture to mark the first anniversary of her death.

Peaches' younger sister Pixie is also slowly returning to public life after keeping a low profile for much of 2014. The 24-year-old has been busy recording music after signing a record and publishing deal in January.

The budding musician is thought to have played a big role in planning her sister's memorial service, including creating a memory box to be given to her young sons on the day.
