Nancy Reagan Remembers Margaret Thatcher: 'We Had A Very Special Relationship' (VIDEO)

Former First Lady Nancy Reagan called into MSNBC's "Andrea Mitchell Reports" to share memories of her relationship with former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

"We had a very special relationship," Reagan said.

"I think people thought she and I didn't have a relationship," Reagan told Mitchell. "Nothing could be farther from the truth."

The former First Lady also commented on Thatcher and former U.S. President Ronald Reagan. Thatcher and Reagan had a close relationship during Reagan's two terms as president and held very similar political views.

"And of course I loved it that she and Ronnie were as close as they were," Reagan said.

Thatcher died early Monday morning after suffering a stroke. Thatcher served as Prime Minister for 11 years until she stepped down in 1990. She was 87.
