Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher: Dead at 87

Margaret Thatcher, the first female British prime minister, has died at the age of 87.

“It is with great sadness that Mark and Carol Thatcher announced that their mother Baroness Thatcher died peacefully following a stroke this morning,” Lord Timothy Bell, her former adviser, said on Monday (April 8). “A further statement will be made later.”

Margaret, who served from 1979 to 1990 as a leader of the Conservative Party, was called the “Iron Lady” for her political and personal toughness.

Meryl Streep famously played Ms. Thatcher in the film The Iron Lady in 2011, a role that won her an Oscar.

We send our condolences to Margaret‘s family and friends at this difficult time.
