Just moments before, Mrs Johnson gave her support to her husband during his resignation speech outside No10.

It was the first time Romy’s face has been seen in public as previously the parents had only shared photographs from behind.

In his address, Mr Johnson acknowledged the sacrifices his wife has had to make during his time in office.

He said: “I want to thank Carrie and my children and all my family, who have put up with so much for so long.”

However, Mr Johnson also revealed his sadness about stepping down from the position.

Having loved it, he said: “I want you to know how sad I am to be giving up the best job in the world.”

He finished his speech with the words: “Above all, I want to thank you, the British public, for the immense privilege that you have given me and I want you to know that from now on until the new prime minister is in place, your interests will be served and the Government of the country will carry on.

“Being Prime Minister is an education in itself. I have travelled to every part of the United Kingdom and in addition to the beauty of our natural world I have found so many people possessed of such boundless British originality and so willing to tackle old problems in news ways that I know that even if things seem dark now, our future together is golden. Thank you all very much. Thank you.”
