Carrie Johnson Takes Son Wilfred To Port Lympne Safari Park As Boris Spends His Last Days As Prime Minister
The outgoing Prime Minister’s wife, Carrie Johnson, is pictured with her son Wilfred at a wildlife park as Boris Johnson spends his last days in his job.
Carrie, 34, was spotted with her oldest child, Wilfred, two, at the Port Lympne Safari Park in Kent while traveling to the breeding reserve for rare and endangered animals.
She looked cheerful as she took a walk in the 600-acre Kentish Savanna, where adult tickets cost £29 and children’s tickets £26 for entry, which included a truck safari they also took.
The outgoing Prime Minister was in Suffolk today at a nuclear power plant where he urged his successor to ‘go nuclear, get big’ as he pledged a £700m investment to build Sizewell C in Suffolk.
Johnson, his third wife, their daughter Romy, now eight months, and Wilf would be two hours’ drive from the safari park at Checkers, the prime minister’s mansion in Buckinghamshire, before his premiership expires on Tuesday.
Liz Truss or Rishi Sunak will win the Tory leadership contest on Monday and the Queen will designate the new Prime Minister the following day.

The Johnsons are said to have left Downing Street in August when trucks were parked outside No10, after which aides confirmed work was underway to ‘transition’ to the next leader.
The Prime Minister has been allowed to take away all the furniture he paid for himself as part of the controversial refurbishment of the residence above No11 – including even the £800 a roll of gold wallpaper.
The outgoing prime minister will resign from office next week and has been house-hunting for a new matrimonial home in Dulwich Village for his family, it has been reported.

‘Thank you Tony and Gordon’: Boris takes target for non-investing in nuclear energy
In his last major policy speech as prime minister, the outgoing prime minister said he was “absolutely certain it will cross the line in the coming weeks.”
Johnson warned it would be “absolute madness” not to proceed with the nuclear project as Russian President Vladimir Putin wreaks havoc on global oil and gas markets.
He expressed confidence that his successor – be it Liz Truss or Rishi Sunak – would give up the “short-termism” and “myopia” that have hampered previous government thinking about Britain’s energy security.
The prime minister also shattered New Labor’s record of developing new nuclear power in Britain, as he accused Tony Blair and Gordon Brown of doing ‘absolutely nothing’ for 13 years.
“Thank you Tony and thank you Gordon,” he said, while Mr Johnson also took a swipe at former Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg for opposing new nuclear sites.
The Sizewell C project is being pursued despite fierce local opposition, although Johnson dismissed the protests outside where he spoke as ‘pure nimbyism’.
The RSPB has warned it could be ‘catastrophic’ for wildlife in the nearby Minsmere Nature Reserve, where some of Britain’s rarest birds have only managed to avoid extinction by surviving in the reed beds.
Both Labor and the Liberal Democrats reacted to Mr Johnson’s “hollow words” about investing in energy projects.
They blamed the Tories’ “terrible legacy” of renewable energy during their 12 years in power for the current cost of living crisis.
Environmentalists claimed the £700m investment in Sizewell C could instead be used to help ‘huge numbers of draughty houses’ across Britain to cut energy bills next year.
Their home in Camberwell is now up for sale for £1.6 million, £400,000 more than they paid for it.
The couple’s £3m budget, which isn’t short, should be more than adequate, as properties in leafy Dulwich Village have sold an average of £1,820,887 over the past year, Zoopla said.
The couple bought the Victorian four bedroom semi in Camberwell in July 2019 when Mr Johnson became Prime Minister. They made the purchase after being forced to vacate their nearby flat when neighbors called police after reports of explosive queues.
However, the Johnsons did not spend any time at the property after moving to Downing Street. The couple are set to make around £400,000 if they get the asking price for the house, bought for £1.2 million.
They made thousands of pounds renting out the property during their stay in Westminster. According to the MPs’ register of interests, the Prime Minister enjoyed a rental income of at least £10,000 a year.
A source told The Sun: ‘Carrie and Boris are looking for a place to take root away from the glare of central London.
‘Now that they have Wilfred and Romy, a family home with a large garden is a must. That’s exactly what Dulwich has to offer.
“The irony that he wanted to imitate Churchill, but ended up following in Thatcher’s footsteps in ending his prime ministership, is not lost on his colleagues.”
Mr Johnson will travel to Balmoral on his last day as Prime Minister to officially resign from the Queen, after giving a farewell address outside No10 at 8.30am on Tuesday.
Either Miss Truss or Mr Sunak will make the 1,000 mile round trip to the Scottish Highlands that Tuesday to be asked to form a government.
The Queen will not travel to London next week to appoint the new prime minister, it was announced today while she will conduct the ceremony in Balmoral – raising new concerns about her health.
It will be the first time in her 70-year reign that the Queen will not receive a new prime minister at Buckingham Palace. She has appointed all 14 of her previous Prime Ministers there, but due to her recent mobility problems she will remain in Aberdeenshire, where she will have her summer holiday.
Johnson, accompanied by senior officials, will be flown to Scotland on the government’s smaller official plane.
After formally submitting his resignation to the Queen earlier in the day than the new Prime Minister, he will make his own way home from Balmoral, a journey of nine and a half hours by car, 45 minutes by private jet or 90 minutes by British Airways scheduled service from Aberdeen.
