Denis and Margaret Thatcher in 2000 Law and Politics Famous People Government World History

Margaret and Denis Thatcher were devoted to each other and created a strong, supportive marriage.  This photo depicts the couple in 2000, ten years after Mrs. Thatcher resigned as Prime Minister.

Addressing her party conference - on October 10, 1980 - the Prime Minister started her speech with these words of tribute to her husband:

Most of my Cabinet colleagues have started their speeches of reply by paying very well deserved tributes to their junior Ministers.  At Number 10, I have no junior Ministers.  There is just Denis and me, and I could not do without him.
