Carrie Johnson’s sweet family tribute in Downing Street snap with Boris, Wilfred and Romy


CARRIE Johnson has congratulated PM-to-be Liz Truss with a sweet snap of her family outside No10 Downing Street.

In a cute Instagram post after BoJo’s successor was announced, the PM’s wife shared a snap of the four of them going through the famous door for the last time.

And she wished best of luck to Liz and her family

She thanked all the “lovely people” at Downing Street and Chequers – their country residence – for looking after them and being “so incredibly kind to us”.

And she added: “Best of luck to Liz and her family.”

Carrie was photographed holding baby Romy, and grabbing blonde-haired Wilfred by the hand.

The family will formally move out of No10 tomorrow after Boris ceases to be PM.

Ms Truss won the Tory leadership vote today with 57 per cent of the vote.

The long-awaited result was announced today at a packed out QEII centre in Westminster.

Rishi Sunak, the runner up, secured 42 per cent.

Body expert and author Judi James said her “regal” power stance showed she’s firmly in control – and “channelling Thatcher”.

Ms Truss is expected to move into No10 tomorrow with her husband Hugh and daughters Frances and Liberty.

But first BoJo will jet to Balmoral to see the Queen, when he will formally resign.

He is set to make a leaving speech in Downing Street on Tuesday morning, before taking the plane up to Scotland.

Ms Truss will travel up separately for security reasons, and will then be asked to form a Government by the Queen, and formally become the next PM.

She will then return to Downing Street where she is expected to make a speech on the steps of No10.

But the weather forecast of heavy rain may force it to take place inside.

Kwasi Kwarteng, who is set to become Chancellor, will move in next door to Ms Truss in the famous Downing Street.

In her victory speech today in London, Ms Truss told the crowd: “I’d like to thank the 1922 Committee, the party chairman and the Conservative Party for organising one of the longest job interviews in history.

“I will deliver a bold plan to cut taxes and grow our economy. I will deliver on the energy crisis, dealing with people’s energy bills, but also dealing with the long term issues we have on energy supply.

“I know that we will deliver. And we we will deliver a great victory for the Conservative Party in 2024.”

Ms Truss also paid tribute to her “friend” Boris Johnson, telling the crowd he delivered Brexit and “rose to the challenge” of the pandemic and war in Ukraine.

The new Tory leader managed to woo over Tory members with the promise of a tax-cutting bonanza.

But the PM-in-waiting also faces one of the worst in-tray of problems any new leader has experienced in years – with an energy crisis, Britain teetering on the edge of recession, and huge NHS waiting lists.

The PM-to-be is expected to lay out her plans to tackle the energy crisis with a major intervention within the next week.
