Margaret Thatcher, Britain's Iron Lady, was laid to rest April 17 with a level of pomp and protest reflecting her status as a commanding, polarizing political figure. More than 700 soldiers, sailors and air force personnel lined the route taken by Thatcher's coffin to the cathedral and around 4,000 police officers were on duty.
