Peaches frequently used her Instagram to share photos of her sons.

Peaches had been a prolific user of Twitter and Instagram, frequently posting updates on her beloved sons Astala, nearly two, and Phaedra, nearly one.

But now, the 25-year-old's Instagram account has been deactivated, meaning her scores of family pictures are no longer accessible to the public.

Her Twitter account is still active.

A spokesperson for Instagram would not divulge who decided to delete the account, but did tell Metro: "'When a person passes away, we do honour requests from close family members to deactivate their Instagram account, which removes the profile and associated information from the site."

Peaches' final tweet was a link to her Instagram account, where she'd posted an image of herself and late mother Paula Yates.

A post-mortem on Peaches is scheduled for today.
