Thatcher joins Captain Jack Sparrow of Pirates of the Caribbean and King George II as cinematic characters who have appeared in the Painted Hall, built some 300 years ago as a dining room for retired seafarers.
In her acceptance speech for the prestigious Golden Globe award, Streep thanked England for “letting her trample over their history”.
