Gallery: Margaret Thatcher’s funeral


Britain’s Iron Lady was laid to rest amid pomp and protest.

Dignitaries filled St. Paul’s Cathedral in London for the funeral of former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher.

Thatcher was given a ceremonial funeral with military honours, which has raised the ire of those who believe her legacy is a socially and economically divided nation.

A retired teacher stood outside the cathedral this morning with a sign to protest spending taxpayers’ money on the funeral.

Prime Minister Harper was among the world leaders and other dignitaries at the service.
