Britain's only female prime minister, Margaret Thatcher made one final journey to the Houses of Parliament on Tuesday (April 16).

Her body will lie in a chapel at the Palace of Westminster's Chapel of St Mary Undercroft, where family will hold a short service before members of parliament are allowed to file in to pay their respects.

On Tuesday evening a debate will take place in the House of Commons, triggered by Respect MP George Galloway. The outspoken lawmaker is angry about changes to parliament sitting times to allow MPs to attend the funeral.

Galloway has called Conservative Thatcher "wicked and divisive". The debate has the potential to be a bitter one, with many opposition politicians angry about the projected 10 million pound cost of the funeral.

The ceremonial funeral with military honours will take place at St Paul's Cathedral on Wednesday (April 17) at 10.00am.

A dress rehearsal took place on Tuesday afternoon, featuring Chelsea Pensioners lining the steps of the famous cathedral.
