Tara Palmer Tomkinson cause death tumour ulcer sister

Socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson died from a perforated ulcer and did not have a brain tumour, her sister said.

Earlier today Tara's sister, author Santa Montefiore, also posted a number of tweets saying she was "touched by the warm response to Tara's death".

"Today (15Feb) the Coroner's report states that Tara died of natural causes - a perforated ulcer". In the last few weeks Tara was happy, positive and making plans for when she recovered her health.

The former TV star, "IT girl", and model died at her home in Earl's Court last week following an announcement last January that she was battling a brain tumour.

Referring to claims about Tara's royal connections, she added: 'Contrary to some reports, Tara was not the goddaughter of HRH the Prince of Wales'.

Speaking to The Daily Mail, Tara said she was "terribly frightened" when learning of the diagnosis, but that it had now cleared.

It went on to say that there was 'no retreat to a "dark place" as some have disappointingly sought to suggest'.

'We will miss Tara very much and will never forget the joy, love and humour she bought to our lives'.
