The partner of Prime Minister Boris Johnson shared a photo of herself cradling their seven-month-old son Wilfred at home whilst she enjoyed a call with the woman, who has been unable to leave her home during the pandemic.
Ms Symonds, 32, captioned the photo: ‘Earlier today, I spoke with another amazing woman in her 80s, who hasn’t been able to leave her home much this year.
‘Despite that, she was in good spirits and having just had the vaccine, was looking forward to returning to her weekly lunch club speaking to her (with Wilf gurgling away on my lap) made my day!’
Carrie Symonds reveals she has spent time speaking with a woman in her 80s to keep her company, taking to Instagram to encourage others to reach out this Christmas
Ms Symonds, 32, captioned the photo: ‘Earlier today, I spoke with another amazing woman in her 80s, who hasn’t been able to leave her home much this year.’
The mother-of-one described how Wilfred had also attempted to get in on the call, ‘gurgling’ on her lap as they spoke.
‘Wilf’, or Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson in full, appeared to be dressed in a Christmas outfit with a star patterned pair of red leggings paired with a simple cream top. The child’s face is yet to be seen by the public since his birth on April 29 this year.
Acknowledging the strict covid-19 restrictions which have left millions with no option but to forgo their Christmas meal with relatives entirely, Ms Symonds encouraged people to follow her lead by ‘doing something like this’ in their communities to spend ‘#ChristmasTogether’.
She added: ‘Many of us won’t be able to see our loved ones this Christmas, but spending a bit of time doing something like this has got to be what Christmas is all about.
