Boris Johnson’s girlfriend Carrie Symonds is seen in public for first time in two months as she enters back of No10 – hours after hearing ‘disappointing’ news of Sajid Javid’s resignation

  • EXCLUSIVE: PM’s partner was spotted arriving at the back entrance of No 10
  • She’s not been seen since she entered No 10 after election win on December 13
  • In recent weeks, she is said to have spent increasingly more time at Chequers
  • She failed to document her and Mr Johnson’s New Year holiday to the Caribbean

Carrie Symonds has been pictured in public for the first time in more than two months.

Boris Johnson‘s partner was spotted arriving at the more-discreet back entrance to No 10 Downing Street in central London yesterday.

It is the first time she has been seen since she was photographed triumphantly entering No 10 alongside the Prime Minister after his election win on December 13. 

Miss Symonds is thought to have heard about Sajid Javid’s shock resignation on her way home to London from a mini-break with friends yesterday. 

The 31-year-old was ‘disappointed’ by the news, having grown fond of him during his time as Communities Secretary when she worked as his aide.

She has been keeping an increasingly low profile since the election victory, spending more time away from Downing Street and opting instead for the PM’s remote Buckinghamshire home, Chequers, where he has been trying out the motorbike she bought him as a Christmas present. 

Miss Symonds was seen leaving No10 again today, with the couple thought to be planning another short trip away during next week’s parliamentary recess.

Despite remaining active on social media, Miss Symonds failed to document her and Mr Johnson’s much-publicised New Year holiday trip to the Caribbean.

The couple flew out to Mustique on Boxing Day last year and stayed for ten days at their hideaway, which boasts four-poster beds, open terraces and an infinity pool. 

The Caribbean island is extremely popular with VIPs and celebrities thanks to its notoriously private reputation.

For their post-Christmas break, Mr Johnson and Miss Symonds flew British Airways to St Lucia and then used a small propeller plane for the hop to Mustique.

According to the villa’s advertised price of $27,000 per week at that time of year, a ten-day stay would normally have cost $38,500 (£29,500).

The villa is priced at varying rates depending on the time of year. But in the two weeks leading up to January 4 it was advertised at the premium rate.

Mr Johnson and his girlfriend spent most of their time in seclusion at their bolt-hole, eschewing the chance to join in the wild New Year’s beach party that was attended by Rolling Stones frontman Sir Mick Jagger, Bond star Daniel Craig and model Kate Moss.

But on New Year’s Day, the Prime Minister and Miss Symonds dropped in to the Caribbean’s most famous hostelry, Basil’s Bar.

The mystery over who funded the trip deepened last night after the luxury villa’s owner told the Daily Mail it was not a freebie.

Sarah Richardson, who owns the home where the two stayed, confirmed that she and her husband Craig had rented it out – and that they had ‘got paid’.

But she said she had ‘no idea’ who had actually covered the cost of the rental as it had been handled by The Mustique Company, the island’s management company.

It comes after David Ross – the British businessman whom Mr Johnson declared had provided the £15,000 ‘benefit in kind’ – denied he had been the one to pay.

The Prime Minister triggered the mystery by naming Mr Ross as the ‘donor’ of the holiday in the Commons register of interests on Wednesday.

But although the former Carphone Warehouse tycoon accepted that he arranged the trip, his spokesman insisted that he did not ‘pay any monies whatsoever’. 

It means that the identity of the person who covered the cost of the trip remains a mystery.
