As David Cameron's sister-in-law, and former correspondence secretary, Alice Sheffield knows how hectic his schedule can be. So it's considerate of her to be getting married in a window when the Camerons can make it – Saturday 7 September – after recess but just before conference. Sam Cam's 32-year-old half-sister was last in the news five years ago, when the PM was found to be employing her three days a week. Now she is to marry her French estate agent fiancé, Etienne Cadestin, at the Sheffields' family home in North Yorkshire. The gardens of Sutton Park, normally open to the public, will be shut that weekend. Sir Reginald Sheffield, Sam Cam's dad, bought it in 1963, after downsizing from nearby Normanby Hall. My man in the potting shed says the place is a flurry of activity. "They're currently building a pergola to prettify the loo block," he whispers. "Though the kitchen garden is still a little on the wild side."
