She wore a £42 sleeveless blue teal pencil dress, with twist neck and belt from Asos, the online fashion retailer for her husband David’s speech.
The dress is described by Asos as being made “from a soft stretch fabric, with a crew neckline and pleat styling to the chest”
Mrs Cameron had been intending to accompany it with a Twiggy leather belt from Fenwick, which sell from £39 to £49 each, but at the last moment replaced this with a £196 croc-effect belt designed by Emilia Wickstead, a favourite of the Duchess of Cambridge.
She wore the same belt on a trip to see the United States President Barack Obama and his family in 2012.
She also splashed out on the dark over-sized coat, which can be bought from £175 each from designer label Cos.
Mrs Cameron’s shoes came from Top Shop.
