British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds have ‘turned to birdwatching’ at Chequers as the Prime Minister has been banned from riding his beloved motorcycle while he recovers from coronavirus.
Mr Johnson and his pregnant fiancee Ms Symonds, who is a vocal nature lover and environmentalist, are spotting red kites, buzzards and woodpeckers along with more usual garden birds in the Buckinghamshire estate, a source close to the couple has told Mail Online.
The PM had been given a second-hand Yamaha TT-R125 as a Christmas present from Ms Symonds, but doctors have banned Mr Johnson from riding the motorcycle on the estate as he recuperates following his diagnosis, it was said.
It comes after Ms Symonds, 32, spoke of her agony while Mr Johnson battled coronavirus in intensive care.
Ms Symonds said she would ‘never stop thanking’ the NHS after he was discharged from St Thomas’s Hospital in central London over the Easter weekend.
After he was admitted, the PM spent three nights in intensive care with oxygen treatment before he was moved back to a general ward.
Ms Symonds – who has been self-isolating in Chequers with the couple’s dog Dilyn – has previously slammed those who wear fur as ‘sick’, called businesses which sell their products ‘nuts’, and has demonstrated against whaling and the badger cull.
The PM’s fiancee tweeted her praise for staff at St Thomas’s as Mr Johnson recovered from the virus.
