Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, god-daughter of Prince Charles, has been found dead at her London home.

The 45-year-old was known as a London party girl, a former Sunday Times columnist and reality TV star.

Prince Charles has publicly issued a tribute to Tara after hearing of her death. 

The Prince said in a statement that he and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, were “deeply saddened” by the news.

BBC News said the Met Police confirmed a woman in her 40s was found dead at Palmer-Tomkinson’s flat in Bramham Gardens, South Kensington, at 13:40 GMT.

The former IT girl has been said to have had a troubled life, despite her privileged upbringing.

Although it is yet not confirmed what caused her death, Tara had received treatment in 2016 for a non-malignant brain tumour, BBC news reported. 

Prior to that she had a highly publicised cocaine habit that led to the collapse of her nasal septum, which needed to be surgically repaired. 

Tara finished in second place while starring in I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here in 2002, filmed here in Australia.

Friends and fans have taken to social media to express their sorrow.

Tweets such as Tara P-T as I’ll remember her. You could rock a Bond-themed fancy dress, party girl. RIP TPT  and Tara was very bright & great fun. Sadly, as she often spoke about, drugs wrecked her life.

Did you know of Tara? We send our condolences to her loved ones.
