Carrie Johnson wore a much-cherished necklace featuring her son Wilfred’s fingerprint to the G20 summit yesterday.
The gold chain, which has an octagon charm carrying the engraving, was made by London-based jeweller Philippa Herbert and was a Christmas present from husband Boris last year.
Mrs Johnson, who is pregnant with her second child, wore the £210 charm as she joined other world leaders’ wives in Rome yesterday
She also wore a £59 blazer from Zara paired with a red rose patterned dress by Spanish designer De La Vali, hired for £53 from clothing rental company Hurr.
Mrs Johnson, 33, completed her look with a pair of red slingback kitten heels, which she bought a few years back, also from Zara.
She joined Brigitte Macron, Jill Biden and Italian PM Mario Draghi’s wife Maria Serenella Cappello for a visit to the Colosseum followed by the Sistine Chapel. On Friday night, she and Boris visited the Spanish Steps, when she wore a blue Gucci coat, hired for £84.
It is thought that Boris will use his ‘secret weapon’ Carrie, who has been championing sustainable fashion ahead of his bid to charm world leaders into taking action to stop climate change tomorrow.

Wearing her hair in loose waves, she appeared in good spirits as she kept her masks on while making her way into the ancient amphitheatre.
Carrie, who shares son Wilfred, 1, was pictured in red alongside the spouses of leaders as British Johnson arrived to be welcomed by Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi to the G20 summit.
The colour red appears to be Carrie’s preferred hue of the moment, with Britain’s first lady wearing four scarlet ensembles in recent months.
Earlier this month, Carrie opted for a £360 red dress from sustainable British brand Cabbages & Roses as she supported husband Boris at his keynote speech at the Tory Party conference.
This is the second time Carrie has worn the red Zara blazer, after attending the Manchester Central Convention Complex in the blazer and a £27.99 white collared shirt with a bow, both from Zara.

Colour psychologist Lee Chambers recently told FEMAIL that Carrie donned the vibrant red garments to ‘convey energy and a message that the future is bright’ while ‘building her personal brand’.
Lee said: ‘When it comes to a Conservative conference, wearing red is a political statement in itself.
‘As a colour, it conveys passion and energy, and can certainly be used to showcase feelings of power and assertiveness in being in the position of the wife of the Prime Minister.’
He continued: ‘It also draws attention and catches the eye, and this will be important to her as she continues to build her own status and personal brand.
‘It is a really strong colour, and with this comes portraying that you are part of the strength needed to navigate these challenging times, and as a timeless colour brings a real intensity to the message that the future can be bright.
As for the message she will be conferring, it is one of boldness and courage in the face of adversity. She will be feeling she can and is willing to draw attention and not feel that she has to pale into the shadows even during pregnancy.
‘It is certainly a fiery message to her husband that she is right by his side and may even take some of the heat off Boris himself.’
Earlier this year the Prime Minister’s wife confirmed they were expecing their second child, and also revealed that she suffered a miscarriage at the beginning of the year that she says left her ‘heartbroken.’
In a brave Instagram post she told how she and husband Boris were expecting a rainbow baby – a term for a child born to a family that has previously lost another due to stillbirth or death during infancy – in December.
The first lady loves red: Earlier this month Carrie covered up her baby bump in a £360 red dress from a sustainable British brand as she supported husband Boris at his keynote speech at the Tory Party conference. Pictured, arriving at the venue

COP26 begins on Sunday at Glasgow’s Scottish Event Campus (SEC) and will welcome 30,000 delegates, 10,000 police and as many as 200,000 protesters for the 13-day conference.
It is the first face-to-face summit of the G20 since Covid struck, and has faced various complications.
Last week the Queen announced she would be unable to attend in person, taking advice from medical professionals to rest.
Additionally, flooding caused major delays for world leaders heading to the summit today – with one train firm urging passengers ‘not to travel’ across the border due to disruption after two road bridges were ‘washed away’ amid torrential rain.
Avanti West Coast – which runs services between London Euston and Glasgow, where the climate conference begins on Sunday – said Network Rail had imposed a series of speed restrictions for safety at several locations.
