LONDON -- The British government on Tuesday said that Lady Margaret Thatcher will receive a ceremonial funeral with military honors on April 17 at St. Paul's Cathedral.
The funeral "will be a mix of the public and the private" and a "wide and diverse range of people and groups with connections to Lady Thatcher will be invited," the government said.
A private cremation will follow the service.
“Leave the past to history especially as I propose to write that history myself.”
