To say that the death of former British prime minister has been divisive is putting it mildly. All across the United Kingdom, mixed emotions have poured out, with some remembering her contributions to society while others wanted to celebrate - or at least celebrate that "the witch is dead."
Thatcher's funeral occurred this morning, with the Queen and a variety of celebrities, such as Terry Wogan, Tony Blair, Jeremy Clarkson, Jeffrey Archer, Shirley Bassey, former South African leader FW de Klerk and Sarah Ferguson, composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, actor Michael Crawford, novelist Jeffrey Archer, opera singer Katherine Jenkins and the mayor of London Boris Johnson attending the funeral. More than 2,300 guests in total attended, with current British Prime Minister David Cameron reading from the Bible.
Over 2,300 guests confirmed their attendance at the service including the current British Prime Minister David Cameron who read a passage from the bible.
The BBC covered the funeral live on its flagship channel, BBC One, with full coverage of the funeral replacing normal programming.
More than 1,800 media were accredited for the funeral, from around the globe.
Thatcher is, at this juncture, the only female PM in Britain's history, winning elections for the position three times - in 1979, 1983 and 1987.
