Gateway 97.8BlogsLeave a Comment

Baroness Thatcher’s funeral will be held at St Paul’s Cathedral next Wednesday.

Britain’s longest serving prime minister and the only woman to hold the role will have a ceremonial funeral with military honours.

It is the same status as that accorded to the Queen Mother and Diana, Princess of Wales, although some Tories want a full state ceremony.

The funeral will be the first ceremonial funeral for a former prime minister the Queen has ever attended. She attended Sir Winston Churchill’s state ceremony in 1965.
