Here is an incredible aerial shot from the funeral for Margaret Thatcher, held Wednesday inside London’s St. Paul’s Cathedral.
Over 2,000 people attended today’s service, including the Queen of England, Elizabeth II. Thousands more gathered outside to catch a glimpse of Thatcher’s coffin as it made its way inside.
The former Prime Minister of Britain, who was nicknamed “The Iron Lady” for her staunch Conservative politics, died last week after suffering a stroke. Her reign divided a nation, and continued to spark debate in the days after her death. (Four-thousand police officers were hired to oversee today’s events, according to multiple reports.)
