Boris Johsnon’s daughter admitted she is unsure about the impact the coronavirus pandemic will have on her ‘future financial prospects’ in an article for British Vogue.
Lara Johnson-Wheeler, the eldest of the Prime Minister’s four children with his second wife, Marina Wheeler, admitted she is holding off on buying new clothes because she is uncertain about how the COVID-19 crisis will impact her finances.
The 27-year-old, who has followed in her father’s footsteps and is forging a career as a writer and editor, is in lockdown with her boyfriend at her family’s country home in Thame, Oxfordshire, which has an estimated value of £1million.

Mr Johnson and Ms Wheeler, who announced their separation in 2018 and finalised their divorce in February this year, also owned an Islington townhouse thought to be worth at least £4million.
Mr Johnson’s fiancée Carrie Symonds is pregnant with his fifth child.
Writing for the fashion bible, Lara explained she has resorted to delving into her teenage wardrobe after failing to pack enough clothes.
Here, in an extract from the article that appears in full on the Vogue website, Lara reflects how clothes hold the power to transport you to a different time and place – and help shape the person you present to the world.

Like many others, I’ve been in isolation since March, and have been staying at my childhood home. I wasn’t prepared for the lockdown; my boyfriend and I thought we were heading to Oxfordshire for the weekend.
But no, it’s been 44 days and we only brought two jumpers, a dress, a skirt and a pair of trackies between us. I won’t even tell you how many pairs of underwear we packed.
Delving into fusty boxes of unsorted teen clothes was a necessity by week two. Rummaging past fishnet sleeve Punkyfish tops, a Tammy Girl jumper and multiple American Apparel leotards in a cacophony of colour, memories hit.
I’m trying my best not to buy more clothes right now, uncertain about future financial prospects and conscious it isn’t the time to splurge. But, I must confess, I did buy two headbands – one black and fluffy, from Shrimps, and one pink and from Prada – that I’ve been drooling over for months.
I’m allotting these spending choices as self-care; I needed something to remind myself that sometimes, in the midst of all this uncertainty, it’s ok to use fashion to remind myself who I am today.
Like everyone else, I can’t wait for this pandemic to be over. I can’t wait to be reunited with my pre-lockdown wardrobe. But more importantly, I can’t wait to be reunited with the people who helped make all the memories the clothes I’m currently wearing have imbued.
