Baroness Thatcher will be given a war leader's funeral, with personnel from regiments who fought to free the Falkland Islands carrying her body into St Paul's Cathedral.
More than 700 men and women from the British Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force will take part next Wednesday, Downing Street has revealed.
The Welsh Guards, the regiment who suffered the heaviest losses in the war, will form a guard of honour as her body is taken into the cathedral for the service at 11am.
Tensions between Britain and Argentina remain over the Falklands, and President Cristina Kirchner will not be invited to Baroness Thatchers funeral, MailOnline has learned.
Downing Street released further details of 'Operation True Blue', its plans for Wednesday April 17, and said Britain's only female prime minister wanted her strong links to the armed forces to be recognised when she died.
During her ceremonial funeral her coffin will be 'draped with the flag that she loved', David Cameron said today, adding: 'This will be a fitting salute to a great prime minister.'

Maggie would probably have smiled at that!
Thank you for making my day.
