Samantha Cameron poses with fluffy chicks she bought to entertain children in lock-down


Samantha Cameron has shared a picture of herself snuggling adorable newborn chicks as she isolates with husband David and their three children in the Cotswolds.

The wife of the former Prime Minster, 48, wished her followers a happy Easter as she posed with the adorable animals in a stylish shot shared to the Instagram page of her clothing brand, Cefinn.

In the shot, the designer sports an orange and red woollen dress with the baby bird perched on her arms, shoulders and legs.

She wrote: ‘Happy Easter Weekend! We’ll be spending time with our new chicks who have been experiencing the outdoors for the first time for just a little bit each day, they are very excited about grass! – Sam x’

The Sunday Times reported today that the former PM’s wife bought the chicks to help keep her three children entertained during the coronavirus lock-down.

The couple have three children, Nancy, 16, Arthur, 14 and Florence, nine. Their first born son Ivan died aged six in 2009 due to complications of his cerebral palsy.  

Like many stars, the family are enjoying the great British countryside during the government-imposed lock-down. 

Samantha and David opened their home in the hamlet of Dean, Oxfordshire – just south-east of Chipping Norton – up to Harper’s Bazaar in 2017, where the stunning country cottage appeared spacious with warm and cosy decor.

‘To be honest the house is slightly falling down,’ Samantha said at the time.

‘The windows are rotting, the roof needs replacing, but it’s lovely and it’s where we brought each of our children home from the hospital. It’s our family nest.’

The Camerons moved back to their cosy Cotsworlds cottage from 11 Downing Street full time in July 2016 after David Cameron resigned as Prime Minister following a Leave victory EU referendum.

Cameron remained the MP for nearby Witney until September but the couple have stayed in the area in the four years since.

While they live in the countryside fulltime, other famous faces have been slammed after moving to their country estates from the city amid the coronavirus lockdown.  

David and Victoria Beckham became the latest second home celebrities to face a backlash from locals for staying in the countryside during the coronavirus lockdown. 

People in the Cotswolds where the Beckhams have a £6million bolthole have spoken out against the former footballer and his family.

One woman who works at the butchers near their home in Great Tew, Oxfordshire, said: ‘The Beckhams and these other fancy folks who think it’s a good idea to self-isolate in the country are just being selfish.’

A local councillor added: ‘Showing off your beautiful country mansion on social media and telling us all what a wonderful time you’re having is just rubbing our noses in it. The Beckhams and other celebrities are just being stupid, irresponsible and insensitive.’

Other local workers said the famous couple would have to wait their turn at local shops while the vulnerable and elderly were served first.

Chef Gordon Ramsay also came under fire this week after relocating from London to Rock in Cornwall and regularly posting on Instagram from his £4million beachfront home.
