Boris’s son Wilfred shows off blonde locks and impressive art skills

He’s might be only eight months old – but he’s already painting pictures and supporting charity.

Baby Wilfred, the son of Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds, has been seen in a rare photo putting the finishing touches to a painting of a reindeer using his fingers and brown paint.

The artwork was later sent to an 89-year-old woman who has Parkinson’s.

His work was part of a scheme to bring together children and elderly people.

Wilfred, in the picture taken by the Number 10 photographer Andrew Parsons and published in the Mail on Sunday, has his face hidden by his curly blond hair and was wearing a cardigan bearing likenesses of the Queen’s Guard and red and white reindeer trousers.

His artwork was part of the Hand in Hand Together scheme set up by The Together Project.


The picture’s recipient Betty Boyes, of North Yorkshire, sent back a picture of a blue hand with the numbers one to ten, the paper said.

Mrs Boyes, of Saltburn-by-the-Sea, told the Mail on Sunday: ‘I can tell that the antlers are Wilfred’s hands. Do you think Boris did the reindeer’s face?

‘I was told my handprint was going to a VIP but I didn’t know who until it arrived. I hope little Wilfred liked the shapes and bright colours on my print.’

The picture of the reindeer was accompanied by an information sheet, filled out by his mother, which revealed Wilfred’s first two teeth have come through, his favourite song is Old MacDonald Has A Farm and his best friend is Dilyn, their family dog.
