Queen, Gerry Brownlee attending Maggie's funeral

Queen Elizabeth II will lead mourners from around the world tonight at the funeral for Margaret Thatcher, one of Britain's most influential Prime Ministers.

Seven hundred soldiers, sailors and airmen in full ceremonial uniform will line the streets of London as Baroness Thatcher's coffin is transported on a gun carriage to her funeral service at St Paul's Cathedral.

The ceremony will be the first time the Queen has attended a Prime Ministerial funeral since Winston Churchill died in 1965.

Gerry Brownlee is representing New Zealand at the funeral.
