Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie have released a Christmas photograph of them at Chequers with their baby daughter Romy.

The Prime Minister and his wife can be seen smiling alongside their child and pet dog Dilyn as they take part in a series of video calls in their 16th century manor house in Buckinghamshire.

The couple spoke to Dr Laura Mount, the Director of Central and West Warrington Prime Care Network, who is leading a vaccination team.

They also spoke to Tom Jones, from Hertfordshire, who attends the Royal Voluntary Service Rickmansworth lunch club and cares for his wife who has dementia.

Mr Johnson and his wife announced the birth of Romy at a London hospital on December 9. It is their second child together after the birth of Wilfred in April last year.

Her full name is Romy Iris Charlotte Johnson.

Mrs Johnson said Romy was picked after her aunt Rosemary, Iris for the Greek word for rainbow, and Charlotte after Mr Johnson’s late mother.

Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson was named partly in tribute to two doctors, Nick Hart and Nick Price, who helped saved the Prime Minister’s life when he was admitted to hospital with Covid earlier that month.

Mr and Mrs Johnson announced they were expecting their second child together at the end of July, as the 33-year-old environmental campaigner spoke of having a miscarriage earlier in the year.

The couple married during a secretly-planned wedding at Westminster Cathedral in May.

Mr Johnson, 57, also has four children with his barrister ex-wife Marina Wheeler.

The prime minister did not take an extended period of leave following Romy’s birth as he battles a string of political scandals as well as the spread of the Omicron variant.
