Other famous names who attended the Baroness' funeral, included broadcaster Sir Terry Wogan, 'Top Gear' host Jeremy Clarkson, singer Dame Shirley Bassey and composer Andrew Lloyd-Webber.

Meanwhile, Sir Ian McKellen has hit out at Thatcher in a new blog post, claiming she set back gay rights by 20 years.

The former PM voted against Section 28's repeal in the House of Lords, which he described as "throwing a piece of red meat to her right-wing wolves".

He wrote: "Lest we forget, this nasty, brutish and short measure of the third Thatcher administration, was designed to slander homosexuality, by prohibiting state schools from discussing positively gay people and our 'pretended family relations'."

He added that Section 28 "galvanised a new generation of activists" before it was finally repealed in 2009 under Tony Blair's government, with David Cameron later apologising for the policy once he came into power.
