The British monarch met regularly with Thatcher for over a decade, during her time as Prime Minister. Queen Elizabeth and Margaret Thatcher had a famously complicated relationship. It also claimed that the monarch found Thatcher to be "confrontational and socially divisive."
Thatcher's distinctive timbre is often traced back to elocution lessons that the Conservative Party leader received during the middle of her career. Politics aside, it remains one of her most defining characteristics in addition to the cobalt blue power suits and meticulously shaped hairstyles she wore.
