The outgoing Prime Minister’s wife Carrie Johnson has been pictured taking her son Wilfred to a wildlife park as Boris Johnson spends his last days in the job.
Carrie, 34, was spotted with her oldest child, Wilfred, two, at the Port Lympne Safari Park in Kent taking a trip to the breeding sanctuary for rare and endangered animals.
She looked in good spirits as she went for a stroll in the 600 acres of Kentish Savanna where adult tickets cost GBP29 and child tickets cost GBP26 for entrance which includes a truck safari which they also took.
The outgoing PM was in Suffolk at a nuclear power station today where he urged his successor to ‘go nuclear, go large’ as he promised a GBP700million investment to build Sizewell C in Suffolk.
Mr Johnson, his third wife, their daughter Romy, now eight months, and Wilf are believed to be staying a two-hour drive away from the safari park at Chequers, the country house of the PM in Buckinghamshire before his premiership is set to end on Tuesday.
Either Liz Truss or Rishi Sunak will win the Tory leadership contest on Monday and the Queen will appoint the new PM the next day.

The Johnsons are believed to have left Downing Street in August when removal trucks were spotted parked outside No10, aides then confirmed that work was ongoing for the ‘transition’ to the next leader.
The PM is allowed to take away any of the furnishings he paid for himself as part of the controversial revamp of the residence over No11 – which could even include the GBP800-a-roll gold wallpaper.
The outgoing Prime Minister will be leaving his role next week and has been house-hunting for a new marital home in Dulwich Village for his family, it’s been reported.

‘Thanks a bunch Tony and Gordon’: Boris takes aim for failing to invest in nuclear power
In his final major policy speech as Prime Minister, the outgoing premier said he was ‘absolutely confident it will get over the line’ in the next few weeks.
Mr Johnson warned it would be ‘absolute madness’ not to push ahead with the nuclear project as Russian President Vladimir Putin wreaks havoc with global oil and gas markets.
He expressed his confidence that his successor – whether Liz Truss or Rishi Sunak – would abandon the ‘short-termism’ and ‘myopia’ that has hampered previous Government thinking on Britain’s energy security.
The PM also tore into New Labour’s record on developing new nuclear power in Britain, as he accused Tony Blair and Gordon Brown of having done ‘absolutely nothing’ during 13 years in office.
‘Thanks a bunch Tony and thanks a bunch 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 in the face of stiff local opposition, although Mr Johnson dismissed protests being staged outside where he was speaking as ‘pure nimbyism’.
The RSPB have warned it could be ‘catastrophic’ for wildlife at the charity’s nearby Minsmere nature reserve, where some of Britain’s rarest birds have only avoided extinction by surviving in the reedbeds.
Both Labour and the Liberal Democrats hit out at Mr Johnson’s ‘hollow words’ on investment in energy projects.
They blamed the Tories’ ‘appalling legacy’ on renewable energy during their 12 years in power for the current cost-of-living crisis.
Environmental campaigners claimed the GBP700million investment in Sizewell C could instead be used to ‘huge numbers of draughty homes’ across Britain to reduce energy bills next year.

Their house in Camberwell is now listed for sale for GBP1.6million, GBP400,000 more than they paid for it.
Not short of cash, the couple’s reported budget of GBP3million should be more than sufficient, as properties in leafy Dulwich Village have sold GBP1,820,887 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 GBP400,000 if they get the asking price for the house, bought for GBP1.2million.
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 GBP10,000 a year.
A source told The Sun: ‘Carrie and Boris are looking for somewhere they can put down roots away from the glare of central London.
‘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.’
Mr Johnson will travel on his last day as Prime Minister to Balmoral to official resign to the Queen after giving a farewell speech outside No10 on Tuesday at 8.30am.
Either Miss Truss or Mr Sunak will then make the 1,000-mile round trip to the Scottish Highlands that Tuesday to be asked to form a government.
The Queen is not travelling to London to appoint the new prime minister next week, it was announced today as she will conduct the ceremony at Balmoral – raising fresh concerns for 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 PMs there but her recent mobility problems mean she will remain in Aberdeenshire, where she is on her summer break.
Mr Johnson will, accompanied by senior officials, be flown to Scotland on the smaller of the Government’s official planes.
After formally tending his resignation to the Queen, earlier in the day then the new PM, he will make his own way home from Balmoral, a nine-and-a-half hour journey by car, 45 minutes by private jet or 90 minutes by scheduled British Airways service from Aberdeen.
