Today, Margaret Thatcher, Britain’s first female prime minister, was laid to rest in London.

Thatcher was an influential—and controversial—figure in British and world politics during her tenure as prime minister, which spanned over a decade and ended in 1990. Thousands of people, protesters and supporters alike, lined the streets of central London as Thatcher was carried to St. Paul Cathedral in a military honors procession normally reserved for members of the royal family.

She died of a stroke on April 8.
