Boris Johnson's wife Carrie Johnson stood out in a stylish pink midi dress to attend Trooping the Colour earlier today.

The Prime Minister's other half wore the fuchsia number to watch the royal event, which marked the first day of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Costing £85 from high street shop & Other Stories, the button-through, long-sleeved frock features frill detailing around the neckline.

The 34-year-old accessorised with a wide-brimmed hat in a matching shade and wore her long, blonde hair in loose curls.

However, it isn't the first time Johnson – who is a well-known fan of a more sustainable approach to fashion – has worn the striking dress.

It first made an appearance when the mother-of-two attended the Conservative Party Conference in 2019.

On that occasion, the former political PR went without a hat and finished off her look with a pair of simple black heels.

Later that year, it was revealed that she paid just under £10-a-month to rent designer clothes for official engagements.

For example, rather than buying the pricey outfits she wore to the G7 summit last summer, it was revealed she had instead rented them from My Wardrobe HQ.

It comes as the special meaning behind the brooch the Queen wore for her Buckingham Palace balcony appearance was revealed.

The monarch had also repeated her outfit, opting for the same ensemble that she wore for her official portrait to mark 70 years on the throne.

She stood next to her great-granddaughter Princess Charlotte who matched her in a £54 blue dress.
