Prime Minister Boris Johnson and wife Carrie are expecting another child together, after welcoming son Wilfred in 2020 and suffering a tragic miscarriage earlier this year which left them "heartbroken". Boris has the unique set-up of living next door to his place of work, residing in a flat at No 11 Downing Street.

The four-bedroom property was also home to former Prime Ministers David Cameron and Tony Blair, who both opted for the larger apartment to accommodate their families.

After moving in back in July 2019, Carrie has supposedly turned to eco interior designer and co-founder of Soane, Lulu Lytle, to put her own stamp on the home. Although it is not known exactly what interiors Carrie and Boris have chosen, we've taken a look at all the glimpses we've been given inside Downing Street.
