The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, David Cameron [September 2015]

Official Visits

David William Donald Cameron became Prime Minister of the United Kingston in May 2010 when he led a Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government. He continued as Prime Minister from May 2015, leading a Conservative government.

David Cameron, a descendant of King William IV’s, was born into a wealthy British family on October 9, 1966, in London, England. Once he became head of Britain’s Conservative party, Cameron sought to modernise it and shed its right-wing image. He was elected the Conservative MP for Witney in West Oxfordshire in 2001 and was also a member of the influential House of Commons Home Affairs Select Committee from 2001 to 2003.

Cameron was then appointed Shadow Secretary of State for Education and Skills after the 2005 General Election and, on a mandate to change and modernise the Party, he was elected Leader of the Conservative Party in December 2005.

When Gordon Brown resigned as Prime Minister, Cameron replaced him, thus at age 43 becoming the youngest prime minister of the United Kingdom since 1812.

David Cameron married Samantha Sheffield in 1996. They had four children however their eldest child, Ivan, suffered from cerebral palsy and severe epilepsy, and passed away in February 2009. The Camerons live in London and West Oxfordshire.
