Carrie Johnson has released a series of playful black and white pictures of herself cradling her two children – also confirming that their toddler son Wilf has certainly inherited his father Boris’ shock of blonde hair.

A smiling Mrs Johnson is seen cuddling two-year-old Wilf and his younger sister Romy, ten months, while relaxing on a blanket in a flowery meadow believed to be in Oxfordshire during the spring.

MailOnline understands the pictures were taken in Bagley Wood, a large ancient wood between Oxford and Abingdon, and around 30 miles from Chequers, the Prime Minister’s country home until he left office. 

The meadow is in bloom, suggesting the pictures were taken in May, before her husband was forced out of No 10 and replaced by Liz Truss.

But the former Prime Minister is not in the pictures taken by Carrie’s friend Rebecca Fulton, a Cotswolds-based photographer.

The four previously unseen pictures show Mrs Johnson laying happily on a blanket with her two children. Mr Johnson has seven children in total.

In one photo she cradles Romy in her lap as Wilf clambers on to her back. In another, she smiles as Wilf points at the sky above. A close-up shows her smiling adoringly up at Wilf, who has apparently inherited his unruly hair from his father. 

Mrs Johnson shared the photos with friends on Instagram, writing: ‘It’s crazy just how fast your babies grow.  These pictures were taken by my lovely friend @fultonphoto8raphy nearly 6 months ago.

‘Wilf is now looking so grown up and Romy is racing around too, hot on his heels. It goes so fast! Please slow down!’

The family are thought to be moving to a new house in Herne Hill, south London, after selling their home in Camberwell and moving out of No 10

The family are thought to be moving to a new house in Herne Hill, south London, after selling their home in Camberwell and moving out of No 10.

Their house in Camberwell was listed for sale for £1.6million, £400,000 more than they paid for it.

Not short of cash, the couple’s reported budget of £3million should have been more than sufficient, as properties in leafy Dulwich Village have sold £1,820,887 on average in the past year, according to Zoopla.

The couple bought the four-bedroom Victorian semi in Camberwell in July 2019 as Mr Johnson became Prime Minister. 

They made the purchase after having to leave their flat nearby when neighbours called the police after reports of explosive rows.

However, the Johnsons have spent no time in the property after moving into Downing Street. The couple stand to make about £400,000 if they get the asking price for the house, bought for £1.2million.

They made thousands of pounds from letting the property during their time in Westminster. 

The register of MPs’ interests says the Prime Minister enjoyed a rental income of at least £10,000 a year.

A source previously told The Sun: ‘Carrie and Boris are looking for somewhere they can put down roots away from the glare of central London.

PREMIER HOME: The garden of the £1.6 million house in Camberwell, which the Johnson’s bought for £1.2 million in July 2019

‘Now they have Wilfred and Romy, a family home with a large garden is a must. That’s exactly what Dulwich can offer.

‘The irony that he wanted to emulate Churchill but ended up following Thatcher’s footsteps in how he ended his premiership isn’t lost on colleagues.’

This comes after Carrie, 34, was spotted with Wilfred at the Port Lympne Safari Park in Kent taking a trip to the breeding sanctuary for rare and endangered animals in September.

She looked in good spirits as she went for a stroll in the 600 acres of Kentish Savanna where adult tickets cost £29 and child tickets cost £26 for entrance which includes a truck safari which they also took.

When Boris Johnson left office last month Carrie paid an emotionally nostalgic tribute to her family’s time in No10 today.

The Prime Minister’s wife posted an image of the family, including son Wilf and daughter Romy, entering the familiar front door ‘together for the last time’.

This suggests that Mr Johnson is not expecting to return to power, despite clamour from his supporters for him to run again in future. 

She also thanked staff in Downing Street and the PM’s country retreat, Chequers, for their kindness, especially towards the children.

 Writing on Instagram, Mrs Johnson wrote: ‘Going through the No10 door together for the last time. I expect Wilf and Romy won’t remember it but they’ve had an incredibly happy start to their lives growing up here’

Writing on Instagram, Mrs Johnson wrote: ‘Going through the No10 door together for the last time. I expect Wilf and Romy won’t remember it but they’ve had an incredibly happy start to their lives growing up here.’

‘Thank you so much to all the lovely people at Downing Street  and at Chequers who have been so incredibly kind to us – particularly to our children.’

Boris Johnson comeback cannot be ruled out with Tories flatlining in the polls, says ally Nadine Dorries as she warns Liz Truss against ditching 2019 manifesto 

A comeback by Boris Johnson cannot be completely ruled out, his close ally Nadine Dorries said today.  

The former Cabinet minister said the former PM was ‘not thinking about’ a comeback and the prospect was ‘highly, extremely unlikely’.

But she made clear that did not mean it was impossible – as she warned Liz Truss against ditching policies from the 2019 Tory manifesto.

The intervention by Ms Dorries came as Tory MPs plot to parachute Mr Johnson back into Downing Street if Labour maintains its huge lead in the opinion polls. 

The ex-premier is said to be a ‘man transformed’ now that he is free of the pressures of No 10, and has even taken up golf. 

But backbenchers terrified of a Conservative wipeout in the so-called ‘Red Wall’ are discussing ripping up party rules to return him to No 10 in the spring. 

Another dire poll today put Labour 21 points ahead, enough for a huge majority at an election.

Ms Dorries said the former PM was ‘not thinking about’ a comeback and the prospect was ‘highly, extremely unlikely’ – but not impossible

Ms Dorries, who was one of Ms Truss’s main backers before swiping at the dramatic policy shifts on areas such as tax and privatisation of Channel 4, said she needed to return to the programme that delivered the 2019 landslide.

‘I believe that it’s not so much changing course as perhaps nuancing the policies and the mandate that she’s taking forward in a slightly different way,’ BBC’s Sunday with Laura Kuenssberg.

‘The fact is that just after a leadership election, and at the start of a new administration, what we don’t need is a disrupter, what we need is a unifier. And I think probably that the new Prime Minister has realised that over the last few weeks.’

Pressed on what should happen if Ms Truss does not go back to the 2019 manifesto, she said: ‘The simple principle of our democracy and our unwritten constitution is that if you’re going to have a completely fresh mandate, a completely fresh set of policy ideas and a new prime minister, it would be right to go to the country.

‘Liz doesn’t need to do that. And I really hope she won’t do that when we’re 30 points behind in the polls.’

However, Ms Dorries had a stern message for rebels such as former colleague Michael Gove who have been stoking rebellion. 

‘I think those people who are doing that need to stop,’ she said.

Ms Truss has been struggling to contain Tory infighting over tax rates and benefits

‘We can’t have a leadership election, put a new leader in place and immediately start discussing about how we remove that leader.

‘They need to stop, they need to get behind her and they need to support her.

‘How they do that is by engaging both with Number 10, and Number 10 need to start engaging with the parliamentary party. I don’t believe that Liz is politically suicidal.’

Grilled repeatedly on whether Mr Johnson could return as prime minister, Ms Dorries said: ‘I have been in politics a long time, I don’t rule anything out. But I would say it is highly, extremely unlikely.’ 

Mr Johnson’s political hero Winston Churchill also spent his ‘wilderness years’ – between losing his Cabinet position in 1929 and joining the War Cabinet ten years later – painting, writing and occasionally playing golf.

And one friend told the Mail on Sunday: ‘The difference in him is palpable. He is painting, reading, writing, playing tennis and even having a try at golf. He looks better – getting plenty of fresh air – and is back to his old self.’
