Who is Samantha Cameron?
Samantha Cameron is the wife of former Prime Minister and Conservative Party leader David Cameron.
Mr Cameron was in office for six years, but after the country voted to leave the EU in 2016, he gave up his position at No10.
Samantha Cameron, formally Samantha Sheffield, is the daughter of Sir Reginald Sheffield, 8th Baronet and Annabel Jones, Viscountess Astor.
She grew up on a 300-acre estate in North Lincolnshire with her family.
Mrs Cameron, 48, has her own share of notable ancestors – as her great-grandfather, Sir Berkeley Sheffield, was an Eton-educated Tory MP in the early 20th century.
Her family also own a large estate in Yorkshire, fit with priceless interiors designed by royal architect Henry Flitcroft in the 1720s.
At the age of 25, she married David Cameron and has had four kids with him, on top of being a successful businesswoman in her own right.
David Cameron reportedly has a net worth of £50 million, and has most recently published his memoirs, titled ‘For The Record.’

After taking a year to complete an Art Foundation course at Camberwell College of Arts, London, Samantha went on to study Fine Art at the University of the West of England.
