Baroness Thatcher was honoured with a ceremonial funeral at St Paul's Cathedral in the presence of the Queen and dignitaries.
If there were protests, they certainly did not disrupt Baroness Thatcher's funeral nor sully what was indisputably a dignified farewell.

After carefully reviewing all of the evidence I have concluded that no charges should be brought in relation to the death of Flight Lieutenant Sean Cunningham, a Red Arrows pilot who tragically died after being ejected from his stationary aircraft on 8 November 2011.
I have provided the police with on-going advice throughout their very thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding the tragic death of Flt Lt Cunningham.
I provided the police with advice on the circumstances surrounding the activation of the ejection seat.
Following this advice, the police decided not to pursue further criminal investigation into this aspect of the incident.
The police did conduct a full criminal investigation into the circumstances which lead to the failure of Flt Lt Cunningham’s parachute to open.
A full file of evidence in relation to this was submitted by the police and reviewed by me.
– Alison Storey, Specialist Prosecutor for the CPS Special Crime and Counter Terrorism Division
I considered charges against three individuals, and against the Ministry of Defence and Martin Baker Ltd, in relation to their involvement in either the manufacture or servicing of the relevant equipment.
The offences I considered were gross negligence manslaughter and corporate manslaughter.
Alison Storey, specialist prosecutor for the CPS Special Crime and Counter Terrorism Division, said there was insufficient evidence to establish that any individual or the Ministry of Defence breached their duty of care to Flt Lt Cunningham in relation to the servicing of the relevant equipment.
She also said there was insufficient evidence to provide a realistic prospect of conviction of Martin Baker Ltd in relation to the manufacture of the parachute.
No charges will be brought in relation to the death of a Red Arrows pilot killed after he was ejected from his cockpit while on the ground, the Crown Prosecution Service has said.
Flight Lieutenant Sean Cunningham, 35, was fatally injured after being ejected from his Hawk T1 aircraft while on the ground at RAF Scampton, Lincolnshire, on November 8, 2011.
The parachute on the ejector seat did not deploy and the South African-born airman later died in hospital.
Lincolnshire Police handed over a file concerning the Iraq veteran's death, but the CPS has said no charges would be brought in relation to Flt Lt Cunningham's death.

The hi-tech Reaper drones are primarily used to gather intelligence on enemy activity on the ground, but they also carry 500lb bombs and Hellfire missiles for precision strikes on insurgents.
An MoD spokesman said they had been carrying out missions including intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, but would not comment on exactly what individual missions had been flown in the past week by drones piloted from the UK.
