Recently, it was revealed that Boris and his partner Carrie got engaged in December and are expecting their first child together sometime in the summer of 2020. 

Their surprising news was revealed in an Instagram post, shared to Carrie’s personal Instagram account.

Although there is no further update as to when the happy couple is planning to say “I do” it is presumed it will take some time after the birth of their first child, as Carrie has been estimated to be around four to five months along in her pregnancy. 

So, what similarities does Carrie share with Melania? 

Both ladies had successful careers before they coupled with their partners. 

Carrie Symonds was a public relations specialist and the Conservative Party’s head of communications in 2018 before leaving to work for the Oceana conservation project.

She previously worked as a press officer for the Conservatives at Conservative Campaign Headquarters (CCHQ) and campaigned for Boris Johnson in the 2010 London mayoral election.

She has been an outspoken advocate for conserving the environment and against climate change.

Before marrying, Melania was a fashion model from Slovenia and boasts several prestigious fashion credits to her name, including posing on the covers of Harper’s Bazaar and Vanity Fair. 

She even moved to the US on an EB-1 visa reserved for those with “extraordinary ability” and “sustained national and international acclaim”.

As well as a successful career, both ladies have a striking similarity in their choice of men. 

Both women are with country leaders who have been married before and Carrie will be stepmother to Boris’ four children.

Donald has five children, the first three from his marriage to Ivana Trump: Donald Jr, 42, Ivanka, 38 – who is now his senior adviser – and Eric, 36.

He also has Tiffany, 26, from his marriage to second wife Marla Maple, and Barron, 13, from his marriage to Melania.

Boris meanwhile has four either five or six children – with one more on the way – four of whom he had with Marina Wheeler – Lara Lettice, 27, Milo Arthur, 25, Cassia Peaches, 23, and Theodore Apollo, 21.

Previously, Carrie was seen wearing a bright pink dress, which also led many to speculate whether she may have been emulating the First Lady.

Melania often wears pink suits, dresses or bright pink pussy-bow blouses. 

Josie Kelly, a personal stylist for high profile and influential businesswomen, said: “Carrie often steps out in flowing dresses similar to those favoured by the US First Lady, however, Carrie also shows that she is confident in her own personal style.”

That said, Josie did think that Carrie also uses her clothes to send “key messages” with her choice of attire like Melania. 

She said: “Melania uses her choice of clothes to send key messages to the world, and I think Carrie has also done so in the past. 

“Carrie always tries to portray a sense of modesty, with her choice in high neckline dresses, but also confidence, as her outfits are also always softened by feminine colours or bold feminine prints.” 

The First Lady and Carrie also share some rather grand jewellery, in the form of their engagement rings. 

According to reports, the huge and colourful gem on the ring finger of 31-year-old Carrie is worth between “£25,000” and “£35,000”.
