The funeral of Baroness Thatcher, Conservative Prime Minister from 1979 until 1990, has taken place in London. Lady Thatcher died on 8 April following a stroke, at the age of 87.
Lady Thatcher's coffin was carried from the Palace of Westminster to the church of St Clement Danes by hearse before being transferred to a gun carriage for the journey to St Paul's Cathedral.
The hearse passed the gates of Downing Street, Lady Thatcher's home address for many years.
Once transferred to a gun carriage drawn by the King's Troop Royal Artillery, the coffin passed through streets lined with well-wishers.
Crowds watched in respectful silence as the procession made its way through the streets.
The Queen attended the service with her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh.
Lady Thatcher's son, Mark, arrived with his wife, Sarah.
One of those attending the funeral, Falklands War veteran Simon Weston, earlier paid tribute to Baroness Thatcher, saying she was a "decisive" leader who gave Britain something to be proud of.
On the banks of the River Thames, the Honourable Artillery Company fired processional minute guns in front of Tower Bridge.
In his welcoming remarks, dean of St Paul's, David Ison, paid tribute to Baroness Thatcher's life and work. Walking in front of the coffin are her grandchildren, Michael and Amanda.
Prime Minister David Cameron sat with former Prime Ministers Tony Blair and Sir John Major.
Following the service, the coffin was taken to the Royal Hospital Chelsea, where it will remain before a private cremation later on Wednesday.
Members of Lady Thatcher's family watched it depart.
Earlier in the morning spectators began to gather to watch the funeral procession. The ceremonial funeral with military honours is one step down from a state funeral.
Some, including John Loughrey, arrived a day early to ensure a good view of events outside St Paul's Cathedral.
Some of those on the route, including Gloria Martin, were clearly supporters.
Others do not remember the former prime minister's rule so kindly.
Four thousand police officers were on duty in central London.
