Mark Thatcher Marbella
Sir Mark Thatcher has been a Marbella resident for over 10 years and was responsible for having to announce the death of his mother, Baroness Thatcher.
Mark, who lives on the Costa del Sol around the La Zagaleta area of Marbella and was famously involved in the Al-Yamamah arms deal with Saudi Arabia a number of years ago, flew back to the UK so that he could be at her bedside.
Prior to the sad news of his mothers death Mark was spotted dining out in San Pedro de Alcantara, Marbella on Friday night with friends.
The joint statement from Mark and his sister Carol simply read “It is with great sadness that Mark and Carol Thatcher announced that their mother Baroness Thatcher died peacefully following a stroke this morning.”
Plans are being made for Baroness Thatcher’s funeral and it has already been announced that it will be a state funeral at St Paul’s Cathedral in central London.
Baroness Thatcher was a controversial leader with many saying that she changed the face of the UK and others insisting they still live in poverty as a result of her leadership.
Whatever anyone’s personal thoughts about her, she will go down in history as one of the UK’s most well known prime ministers.
