Boris Johnson’s girlfriend Carrie Symonds shops for a ring in Notting Hill

Boris Johnson‘s girlfriend Carrie Symonds has been spotted trying on rings as she visited a jewellers during a shopping trip in London‘s trendy Notting Hill.

The exclusive images show the 31-year-old looking relaxed and smiling as she toured the stores near Portobello Road in the sunshine with close friend and FGM campaigner Nimco Ali.

It is the first time Carrie, a former director of communications for the Conservative Party, has been seen in public since she was photographed with Boris looking smitten in the Sussex countryside.

The photo, showing them hand in hand and deep in conversation, emerged just days after the police were called to the couple’s south London home after a blazing row. 

In the latest images Carrie, wearing leather trousers and bright pink and white T-shirt, tries on rings in a jewellery shop, before visiting a photo booth with Nimco, and the pair laugh and share a joke as they view the pictures.

The PR specialist visited a market stall, trying on a selection of different hats, before heading to a charity shop, and later an upmarket Deli.

The two friends take a break at one stage in a local cafe as they relax with what appears to be a glass of water, before heading to Neals Yard cosmetics shop.

After details of the late night row were made public on June 21, the couple faced questions about their relationship. But the image of the two in the garden undermined claims the romance was in crisis.

Boris has repeatedly refused to comment on the row, and has avoided answering questions about his private life as he continues his bid to become leader of the Tory party and Britain’s next Prime Minister.

A friend told the MailOnline after the photograph emerged: ‘There has been so much nonsense touted around about their relationship.

‘The truth is that they love each other very much and want to get married as soon as the time is right. Boris only has eyes for Carrie and she is totally smitten with him.’

Rumours circulated around Westminster that the photographs were staged. 

Members of Boris’s Tory leadership bid team refused to comment on them, however sources confirmed they were taken just days after the row and show the pair in the Sussex countryside.

Ms Ali revealed at the time that the couple are still ‘loved up’ and Miss Symonds had recently taken Boris to a plush Mayfair restaurant to celebrate his 55th birthday.

She said: ‘They don’t deserve this from creepy neighbours. People in love row once in a while. So what, they are human. If anything I think this whole thing has brought them even closer together’.

Miss Ali said it’s the ‘expectation’ in their social group that the couple will marry soon because ‘they are happy and good for each other’, adding in an interview with the Evening Standard: ‘Carrie is an amazing woman. Kind, decent and genuinely wants to make the world a better place.’

Boris’s leadership campaign was damaged after neighbours called in the Met when Carrie was allegedly heard yelling ‘get off me’ and ‘get out of my flat’.

The recording of the ‘plate smashing screaming row’ was handed to the police and the Guardian newspaper by ardent Remainers Eve Leigh, 34, and Tom Penn, 30, who said that they feared for Miss Symonds’ safety. 

But Boris and his girlfriend are said to be furious saying it was part of a politically-motivated attack on them by ‘hostile’ left-wing neighbours who had repeatedly ‘crossed many lines’

Tory MP and Boris supporter Nadine Dorries said: ‘They are naturally shocked and upset that their neighbours taped their private conversation for the Guardian. 

‘They were aware the neighbours were hostile politically but the campaign against them has crossed many lines. 

‘They have endured protests outside the flat, aggressive posters, hand-delivered hate mail and provocative behaviour in the street. They have been forced out of their home over fears for safety. But they are very much together, and, if anything, stronger as a result’.
