DAVID and Samantha Cameron's Cornish-born daughter takes centre- stage in the Prime Minister's official Christmas card this year.

Offering a shy smile from behind her mother's cheek, Florence Rose Endellion Cameron, 3, is the star of the PM's seasonal greeting to world leaders and dignitaries.

The picture, by Tom Stoddart, is Florence's second appearance on Mr Cameron's Christmas card.

She first featured in 2010, months after her birth at the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro. She was given the middle name Endellion after the Cornish village St Endellion, close to where the family were on holiday when she arrived.

More than 2,000 cards have been printed for the Prime Minister to send in the coming weeks.

However, he will not sign them all personally, and many will be pre-printed with his signature.

Mr Cameron has opted for a photograph of himself and wife Samantha each year since taking power in 2010, when they chose the photograph of the couple holding baby Florence on the steps of Number 10.

This year's card rounds off a year when young Florence has often made the news.

Mr Cameron has spoken of his desire to take her to nursery in Westminster as often as possible and is often pictured leaving Number 10 carrying scooters, dolls and buggies.

In July Florence was rushed to hospital after getting a sticker trapped up her nose.
