Meet a royal blood descendant, a business woman, mother and wife of UK’s prime Minister. She is Samantha Cameron born to a descendant of King Charles the II and his wife.
Samantha Gwendoline Sheffield was born April 18, 1971, in North Lincolnshire, England. She is the older of two daughters born to Sir Reginald Adrian Berkeley Sheffied, 8th Baronet, a descendant of King Charles II, and Annabel Lucy Veronica Jones. She is a distant cousin of Diana, Princess of Wales!
Sam was well educated and destined to be successful in her career. Attending the School of St. Helen and St. Katherine, a private school for girls in Oxfordshire and later graduating from University of the West of England’s School of Creative Arts with a degree in fine art.
Following her graduation it wasn’t hard to land a job as the creative director of Smythson of Bond Street, a London-based British manufacturer of luxury stationery, leather goods and fashion products. She had a brilliant performance working with the company for 14 years.
Her work with the company won her a British Glamour Magazine Award in 2009 for “Best Accessory Designer.” Her dedication and hard work contributed in large part to improving Smythson’s image, establishing the company as a fashionable and popular brand.
Samantha and David Cameron first met when she was 16-years-old through one of David’s sisters who invited her to a family vacation to Tuscany in Italy. The love spark began and they tied the knot on June first 1996; five years before he became Prime Minister. Their wedding ceremony was held at at the Church of St. Augustine of Canterbury.
The couple has had four children together. She is mother to Ivan (born 2002-2009); Nancy, born in 2004; Arthur born in 2006 and Florence born in 2010. Their first child, Ivan, sadly, died at age 6 from a combination of cerebral palsy and a form of severe epilepsy.
In 2010 she announced that she was stepping down from her full-time executive role, and that she would be taking on a part-time consultancy role.
The obviously high profiled couple has been photographed in countless political events as well as outings and lavish vacations which has gained them negative criticism on how much they spend during the hard times of austerity.
The wife of the prime minister has also been the subject of many magazine covers due to her personal style.
