Baroness Thatcher left instructions that the Prime Minister should give a reading at her funeral, it has been reported.
The former Prime Minister gave detailed instructions on how the service, to be held on Wednesday at St Paul's Cathedral, should proceed, according to The Daily Telegraph.
They were said to include the choice of hymns - among them the patriotic I Vow to Thee, My Country - and readings from the Bible.
