    Sorry for this silly question. I'm not British. Following Thatcher's sad news, I tried to wikipedia some politicians' personal details and noticed that in the "Religion" column Church of England is used to replace a specific religion, what does this mean?

    Margaret Thatcher: Church of England; Methodist
    David Cameron: Anglican
    William: Church of England
    Kate: Anglican (Church of England)

    Are they really religious or just because of their political status? I'm so ignorant..

    I think the articles are just a bit inconsistent. Anglicanism is essentially the type of Christianity (specifically a type of Protestantism) that the Church of England follows. The Church of England is a specific Church organisation that follows that religion (also the original one). I guess they're not technically the same thing because there are Anglican churches in other countries.

    Not sure how Methodism fits into it though. I'm pretty sure that's a different sect. Maybe Margaret Thatcher converted between them?
