Mark Thatcher says his mother would be "humbled" by the presence of The Queen at her funeral.
He added: "I would like to say how enormously proud and equally grateful we are that Her Majesty has agreed to attend the ceremony next week in St Paul’s and I know my mother would be greatly honoured as well as humbled by her presence."
Mark Thatcher has expressed thanks for the "warm" messages of support received in the wake of his mother's death.
He said: "These messages often convey personal stories and vignettes of part of the journey of my mother’s life and we are all enormously grateful for the warmth that these messages of convey and they will be a source of encouragement and strength as we face the inevitable days ahead.
MPs and peers will today pay their respects to Baroness Thatcher after Parliament was recalled from its Easter recess so tributes could be paid to the former prime minister.
They will debate a single line motion which reads: "That this House has considered the matter of tributes to the Rt Hon Baroness Thatcher of Kesteven LG OM."
The Prime Minister will lead the debate on the death of Lady Thatcher, Ed Miliband will follow, before Speaker John Bercow then calls MPs to contribute.
The order paper for proceedings indicate the debate may continue until 10pm, at which point Leader of the House Andrew Lansley will adjourn the Commons until its planned return from the Easter recess on Monday.
