Barrister Alexander Cameron, brother to former United Kingdom’s Prime Minister, David Cameron, is dead.
Alexander died aged 59 after battling cancer since 2020.
Before his death on Wednesday, cancer had forced him to step down from the bar.
Alex’s chambers, Three Raymond Buildings, confirmed his death in a statement on Wednesday, according to a UK medium.
“It is with immense sadness that Chambers announces the death of Alexander Cameron KC.
“Alex was considered to be one of the best silks at the Criminal Bar during his illustrious career and was a hugely respected and inspirational head of these Chambers.
“He will be missed enormously, and our heartfelt condolences go to his wife, Sarah, their children Imogen and Angus, and to his wider family.
“Details of a memorial service will be announced in due course,” the statement read.
At 39, the deceased was made a Queen’s Counsel and was described as a “phenomenon” with “enthralling advocacy skills”.
It is also thought Alexander encouraged David to enter politics and helped him climb his way to Prime Minister in 2010.
