David Cameron

David Cameron was born on October 9, 1966 in Marylebone, London. He is a lineal descendant of William IV by his paternal grandmother, Enid Agnes Maud Levita, through the king's mistress Dorothea Jordan.

His father was Ian Donald Cameron (1932–2010) a stockbroker, and his mother is Mary Fleur (née Mount; born 1934), a retired Justice of the Peace.

Six weeks before taking his O-Levels at Eton, Cameron was caught smoking cannabis. He admitted the offence and had not been involved in selling drugs, so he was not expelled, but was fined, prevented from leaving school grounds, and given a "Georgic" (a punishment which involved copying 500 lines of Latin text).

Cameron married Samantha Gwendoline Sheffield, the daughter of Sir Reginald Adrian Berkeley Sheffield, 8th Baronet on June 1, 1996 at the Church of St. Augustine of Canterbury, East Hendred, Oxfordshire. She was a Marlborough College school friend of Cameron's sister Clare and had been invited on a Cameron family holiday in Tuscany, Italy, where the couple's romance started.

When he was the Leader of The Opposition, Cameron drunk a cup of tea with up to 10 spoonfuls of sugar in it before Prime Minister’s Questions. He said that it helped his larynx.

The Camerons have had four children. Their first child, Ivan Reginald Ian, was born on 8 April 2002 in Hammersmith and Fulham, London, with a rare combination of cerebral palsy and a form of severe epilepsy called Ohtahara syndrome, requiring round-the-clock care. Ivan died at St Mary's Hospital, Paddington, London, on February 25, 2009, aged six.

The British Prime Minister Gordon Brown received a Christmas card from David Cameron saying "Merry Christmas from me and 'the props'" after Brown accused Cameron of using his children as props in his 2008 conference speech.

David Cameron took office as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom on May 11, 2010, as the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats formed the country's first coalition government since the Second World War.

The 43-year-old Cameron was the youngest British Prime Minister since the Earl of Liverpool 198 years earlier.

After the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union in June 2016, David Cameron announced he would resign as Prime Minister. He was succeeded by Theresa May on July 13, 2016.

At a Q&A in August 2013 Cameron described himself as a practising Christian and an active member of the Church of England.
