What is David Cameron’s Net Worth
David Cameron is a British author, businessman, and politician who has a net worth of $50 million. He is best recognized for serving as the country’s previous prime minister.
David, 43, took office as British Prime Minister in 2010, making him the country’s youngest leader since the Earl of Liverpool nearly 200 years earlier.
After England decided to leave the European Union, or “Brexit,” Cameron resigned as prime minister in July 2016. David has also held positions as the Leader of the Conservative Party and a Member of Parliament (2001–2016).
In addition to being named to the UK’s Privy Council in 2005, he received the Order of King Abdulaziz, Special Class, in 2012.
David William Donald Cameron was born in Marylebone, London, on the 9th of October 1966. His mother, Mary, is a formerly employed Justice of the Peace, while his father, Ian, worked as a stockbroker.
Sir William Mount, a British Army commander who served as Berkshire’s high sheriff and a descendant of David, is David’s maternal grandpa.
Cameron was raised in Peasemore, Berkshire, and went to Heatherdown School and Eton College. He had three siblings: a brother, a sister, and himself.
David spent the year following his graduation in 1984 working as a “ship jumper” for Jardine Matheson in Hong Kong and as a researcher for Conservative MP Tim Rathbone, who is also his godfather. In the Soviet Union, where he also traveled, two KGB agents allegedly tried to recruit him.
David arrived at Oxford’s Brasenose College in the fall of 1985, where he belonged to the Bullingdon Club, a dining society for students. In 1988, he graduated with a First Class Honours degree from Oxford after studying philosophy, politics, and economics there.
David worked for the Conservative Research Department from 1988 to 1993, ultimately rising to the position of head of the political divide.
He started working for Home Secretary Michael Howard in 1993 after being named Special Advisor to Chancellor of the Exchequer Norman Lamont in 1992.
David started working as the Director of Corporate Affairs at Carlton Communications in the middle of 1994, and he quit for a short time in 1997 to run for office.
He was a consultant for Carlton Communications after leaving his job there to seek office once more in 2001.
David was elected to the House of Commons in his second attempt, and he held there until 2005. He held a variety of positions in the legislature, including vice chairman of the Conservative Party, shadow minister in the Privy Council Office, and member of the Commons Home Affairs Select Committee.
David was named the Shadow Cabinet’s head of policy coordination in 2004 and later held the position of Shadow Education Secretary.
He was a non-executive director at Urbium PLC, which ran the chain of Tiger Tiger nightclubs, around this time as well.
David defeated David Davis to become the Conservative Party’s leader in December 2005, and in March 2006, he was appointed to the Privy Council. The European Conservatives and Reformists were the results of his collaboration with the Civic Democratic Party.
Following Gordon Brown’s departure as prime minister in 2010, David and Nick Clegg, the leader of the Liberal Democrats, established the Conservative-Liberal Democrat Coalition administration after Queen Elizabeth II extended an invitation to David to do so.
As the new prime minister, David stated that he will “put party differences aside and work hard for the common good and for the national benefit.”
David was re-elected in May 2015, but on June 24, 2006, he announced his resignation after British citizens chose to leave the European Union. Theresa May succeeded him, and later that year he also announced his resignation from Parliament.
David has held the positions of president of Alzheimer’s Research UK and chairman of the National Citizen Service Patrons since leaving the political sphere.
On June 1, 1996, David wed Samantha Gwendoline Sheffield. Samantha’s parents are Sir Reginald Sheffield, 8th Baronet, and Annabel Lucy Veronica Jones, Viscountess Astor after she wed William Astor, 4th Viscount Astor in 1976. Ivan (born in 2002), Nancy (born in 2004), Arthur (born in 2006), and Florence are the Camerons’ four children (born in 2010).
Tragically, Ivan, who was born with cerebral palsy and Ohtahara syndrome (a type of epilepsy), went suddenly in February 2009 at the age of 6.
David received £300,000 from the estate after David’s father, Ian, passed away in 2010. Ian had founded Panamanian Blairmore Holdings, an offshore investment fund that had a late-1990s valuation of $20 million.
As the Panama Papers documents were leaked in 2016, it was discovered that David had contributed to his father’s offshore fund, prompting calls for his resignation.
David Cameron frequently rode a bicycle to work before he was elected prime minister. He participated in the Great Brook Run and Oxford 5K in 2009 to raise money for charity.
He is a fan of cricket and has made appearances on the sports radio program “Test Match Special.” He also backs the Aston Villa football team.
In the year 2014, David discussed his religion in the “Church Times,” in which he declared, “I am a member of the Church of England, and, I believe, a very classic one: not that regular in attendance, and a little hazy on some of the more challenging aspects of the faith.
Yet, that does not imply that the Church of England is not important to me or others like me; it is. I admire its transparency, its contribution to the nation, its liturgy, and the historical significance of its churches. I really like how open it is.”
David and Samantha spent £2,000,000 on a vacation property in the Cornwall village of Trebetherick in 2017.
The couple submitted plans to develop a game area on the grounds and built an £8,000 wood-burning hot tub after purchasing the home.
In addition, the Camerons have a residence in Chipping Norton, in the Cotswolds, which they purchased in 2001 for £650.000.
David spent £25,000 on a shepherd’s hut/”man cave” with a wood-burning fire and a pull-out sofa bed that he claimed he intended to use as a “book writing room.”
