Boris and Carrie Johnson have enjoyed a date night at one of London ‘s most exclusive private members’ clubs.
The Prime Minister and his wife were photographed walking out of Oswald’s in Mayfair last Thursday night at about 9.30pm accompanied by a security detail of six people before getting into a waiting Range Rover.
Mrs Johnson, 33, was wearing a £695 Wiggy Kit black Marais midi dress made from cotton canvas with velvet panelling and white embroidery, accompanied by a £413 Anya Hindmarch eyes beaded shoulder bag.
Earlier that day, Mr Johnson had visited a vaccination centre at Moulton Park in Northampton and said anti-vaccine campaigners who spread ‘mumbo jumbo’ and ‘nonsense’ on social media are ‘completely wrong’.
Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi was also said to have visited Oswald’s on Albemarle Street last week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and Foreign Secretary Liz Truss is believed to have been there last Wednesday.
The exclusive club, which has a ground floor inspired by the Hall of Mirrors in the Palace of Versailles, is known for its fine wines – with members also allowed to cellar up to 12 of their own there and no corkage fees applied.
The club has aimed to attract female members as well as couples and is owned by entrepreneur Robin Birley who named it after his grandfather, the portrait artist Sir Oswald Birley who painted Winston Churchill.
Applicants must be recommended by existing members and there is a waiting list, with membership prices only available on application. Visitors have included Dame Joan Collins, David Beckham and actress Amber Heard.
Other Conservative politicians known to have attended the club – owned by Winter Restaurants Limited – include Home Secretary Priti Patel, Housing Secretary Michael Gove and former chancellor George Osborne.
Today, Mr Johnson visited a vaccine clinic at a pharmacy in his Uxbridge constituency in West London, and said he would ‘act according to the science’ around cutting the self-isolation period for Covid-19 cases.
Experts are examining whether the period could be cut from seven to five days for cases, something which would help ease staffing crises across the economy and public services.
Mr Johnson also pledged that free lateral flow tests would be available for ‘as long as it is necessary’ as ministers considered how to move to a position of living with Covid-19.
The Prime Minister said testing was an important line of defence, along with vaccinations, in the face of the Omicron wave.
He is under pressure from Tory MPs to commit to ending restrictions and shift to a position where Covid-19 is treated in a similar way to other illnesses which do not require state interventions.
There is also a debate in Cabinet about cutting the self-isolation period, as France and the United States have done.
Over the weekend, Mrs Johnson photos online of their children Wilf and Romy against a scenic backdrop of the beach at low tide at Thorpe Bay in Essex as they headed to the coast away from the pressures of Downing Street.
Wearing a red woollen hat and jeans, Mrs Johnson, 33, smiled broadly as she carried her one-month-old daughter in a cloud-patterned papoose.
Meanwhile Wilf, 20 months, enjoyed exploring the puddles in a red dinosaur jumpsuit and playing with the family’s dog Dilyn.
In another picture, the Prime Minister’s silhouette could be seen in the distance on the beach, wearing his signature beanie hat.
