Notes

Margaret Thatcher's own copy of the official group photograph from the Commonwealth heads of government meeting in Melbourne in 1981, with the attendees' facsimile signatures printed underneath. The attendees of the meeting included Thatcher, Indira Gandhi, Malcolm Fraser, and Robert Mugabe, the last of whom was representing the newly-joined Zimbabwe. Against Thatcher's reservations, but with the support of Fraser, the representatives signed the Melbourne Declaration at the meeting, committing the wealthier countries to support the poorer ones. The photograph remained in her possession until her death in 2013, and was acquired by Peter Harrington directly from her estate.
