She may be only 19-years-old, but Baroness Thatcher’s granddaughter captivated mourners on Wednesday as she delivered a flawless reading at the former prime minister’s funeral.

Amanda Thatcher, a US college student, appeared unfazed as she gave a lesson from Ephesians which called on the righteous to “put on the whole armour of God”…

She later told an MP that she had not felt nervous, adding: “It’s sort of in the blood.”…

Ms Thatcher and her brother, Michael, 24, are the children of Sir Mark Thatcher and his first wife, Diane Beckett. They live with their mother in Dallas, Texas, where, according to her high school reports, Ms Thatcher is a talented sportswoman who excels in athletics and was voted “most likely to change the world” by her peers.

She and her brother are dedicated evangelical Christians, and were Baroness Thatcher’s “greatest delight” in later life.
