Margaret Thatcher Funeral Procession

A funeral fit for an Iron Lady: Route of Baroness Thatcher's final journey from the Parliament she loved to St Paul's is revealed

Details of ceremonial funeral were mapped out 'more than five years ago'

Mikhail Gorbachev and Nancy Reagan expected to lead global mourners

All living prime ministers plus Cabinet and shadow cabinet will also attend

The service is expected to take place either next Wednesday or Thursday

Lady Thatcher’s final journey will take her from the House of Commons, the political home she bestrode for more than three decades, to a service at St Paul’s Cathedral.

Details of the ceremonial funeral with military honours are understood to have been mapped out in talks between government officials and Baroness Thatcher more than five years ago.

Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev and Nancy Reagan, wife of her closest ally US President Ronald Reagan, are expected to lead a list of international mourners.
