Margaret Thatcher's funeral held at St. Paul's Cathedral

A horse-drawn gun carriage bearing the coffin of Margaret Thatcher was ceremoniously drawn to St. Paul's Cathedral, for a ceremonial funeral on Wednesday, even as the country bid adieu to England's epitome Iron Lady. Around 700 military personnel from the Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force lined the streets, including guards in scarlet tunics and distinctive black bearskin hats on the 24 cathedral steps. It took two hours for dignatories, ministers and former leaders from all over the world to take their seats at St Paul's cathedral to see off Thatcher.
