Samantha Cameron was photographed wearing a blue midi dress as she arrived at St Paul’s today for the Platinum Jubilee Thanksgiving service.

The 51-year-old was accompanied by her husband David Cameron, 55, the former prime minister.

Businesswoman Samantha wore a £290 blue maxi dress designed by Cefinn, the London-based fashion brand she founded and of which she is the creative director, for the occasion.

According to Cefinn’s website, the ‘Cordelia’ dress is made from 100 percent printed organic cotton.

It is described as ‘delicate knife pleats at the neckline, a layered skirt and elegant sleeve, which enhances its femininity and makes it really special’.

Samantha paired the dress with black accessories, including simple heeled pumps and a hat.

She kept the rest of her look simple, with her black hair in a low bun and a glossy makeup look with dark eyeliner and a pink lip.

Her husband David completed her outfit with a matching blue suit, a blue and white checked shirt and a purple tie.

Her Majesty will not be in attendance today, having had to “reluctantly” withdraw last night after experiencing “discomfort” at the Trooping The Color events.

According to a statement from Palace, the 96-year-old “enjoyed her birthday parade and flypast a lot” but “did experience some discomfort”.

It read: “Considering the travel and activities required to participate in the National Thanksgiving service tomorrow at St. Paul’s Cathedral, Her Majesty has regretfully concluded that she will not be attending.”

In addition, Prince Andrew was not at the event after he announced yesterday that he had tested positive for Covid.

However, other senior royals will also participate, most notably Prince Charles who will replace his mother, as well as the Duchess of Cornwall, the Dukes and Duchess of Cambridge and the Sussexes.

Today’s service marks Harry and Meghan’s first appearance at The Firm since the icy Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey in March 2020, shortly before they officially step down as senior royal.

The pair were spotted watching Trooping the Color yesterday, but they made a concerted effort not to be seen by prying eyes, arriving at Horse Guards Parade incognito and diligently keeping clear of most – though not all – waiting photographers.

Also at today’s thanksgiving service will be approximately 400 members of the public, including key figures, charities volunteers and members of the armed forces, who were invited to the service in recognition of their contribution to public life.

The Bishop of London said earlier today that she is “enthusiastic” for the thanksgiving service. Rt Revd and Rt Hon Dame Sarah Mullally, who will lead the blessing at St Paul’s, told BBC Breakfast: ‘I’m excited I guess.’

She added that she was nervous about the ceremonial regalia she has to wear. “It’s a jacket called the George V jacket. It’s a pretty old coat, a cape, and it’s on me, but it’s designed for men, of course, because I’m the first woman to happen to be the Bishop of London,’ she said. “So he doesn’t sit very well with me, so I’m a little nervous.”

She said Her Majesty’s Christian faith “has always shaped her” and that she feels privileged to play a part in the service and “thank the Queen” for her service to the country.

This morning, ahead of the service, royal fans began gathering in London in hopes of catching a glimpse of the family.
