Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara joined a host of British and international dignitaries in London on Wednesday, as the British capital stages its biggest political funeral in almost half a century for former prime minister Margaret Thatcher.

In an event comparable to that of Winston Churchill's funeral in 1965, and which has sparked ire in many Brits, Thatcher's coffin will be carried atop a horse-drawn gun carriage through streets lined with admirers, and some detractors, from parliament to the city's most famous cathedral.
