Carrie Johnson, Jill Biden and Brigette Macron enjoy trip to Cornwall’s Minack Theatre at G7 summit

The First Ladies of the world’s richest nations enjoyed a morning at the Minack Theatre in Cornwall today on the second day of the G7 summit.

Newlywed Carrie Johnson, Dr Jill Biden and Brigette Macron were treated to a performance of Ocean World and chatted to performers at the picturesque seaside venue.

Sat socially distanced in the unique open air theatre carved into the granite cliff at Porthcurno, close to Land’s End, the trio appeared in high spirits as they took in the sun-drenched show. 

The prime minister’s wife and FLOTUS appeared to get on like a house on fire as they were pictured chatting while touring the stunning theatre and its surroundings.

Mother-of-one Carrie, 33, who married Boris Johnson in a secret ceremony last month, looked sharp in a sculpted slim fitting £595 cobalt blue jacket and matching £395 flared trousers, both by Amanda Wakeley.

Both are rented from My Wardrobe HQ, the clothing rental site which Carrie used to hire her stunning Christos Costarellos wedding dress, both priced at £80.

She teamed the ensemble with a crisp white shirt and black Jimmy Choo stilettos – also rented – and accessorised with a chunky silver chain and hoop earrings. 

Opting for a business-like look, Carrie swept her long blonde locks into a loose updo. 

US First Lady Jill recycled an asymmetric midnight blue floral dress by Oscar de la Renta which she wore in November last year when she joined President Joe on stage in Wilmington, Delaware.

The £4,033 gown featured an A-line silhouette with a draped collar and was designed by Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim, both immigrants to America who trained under the designer.

The practical FLOTUS teamed it with flat shoes for the steep ampitheatre, opting for dainty pointed toe black pumps with a lace cut-out. 

Meanwhile French First Lady Mrs Macron, who often opts for classic, neutral tones, opted for a smart beige two-piece with a white organza lace top and chic pearl wedges.

She wore her glossy blonde bob loose, as did Mrs Biden, with both women sporting sunglasses to block out the sun’s rays.

The show is bound to have been a hit with conservationist Carrie; Ocean World is a Minack education project which saw pupils from West Cornwall schools come together to perform a heart-wrenching musical about a hump-backed whale and her young calf as they make the perilous journey from the southern seas to their feeding grounds in the North Atlantic.

Penned in 1990 by Peter Rose and Anne Conlon and commissioned by WWF, their story is told through music, dance and song, as they face each challenge that threatens their survival and that of their whole world. 

The show premiered at the Royal Festival Hall and was also shown as part of Channel 4’s Fragile Earth series in 1991, when the narration was spoken by Sir David Attenborough. This production is led by The Minack Theatre in partnership with Cornwall Music Service Trust.
