Boris Johnson’s mother dies aged 79

London British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is mourning the loss of his mother after she died aged 79.
Charlotte Johnson Wahl, a painter, died “suddenly and peacefully” at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, on Monday according to a death notice in The Times.
Mr Johnson once described his mother as the “supreme authority” in the family and credited her with instilling in him the equal value of every human life.
The notice in the Times says she was a “Painter. Mother of Alexander, Rachel, Leo, and Joseph; grandmother of Ludovic, Lara, Charlotte, Milo, Oliver, Cassia, Theodore, Rose, Lula, William, Ruby Noor, Stephanie and Wilfred.” Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer was among the first politicians to offer his condolences.
“I’m very sorry to learn of the Prime Minister’s loss. My condolences to him and his family,” he tweeted.
Tory MP Conor Burns said: “So sad to hear of the death of Boris Johnson’s Mum. Thoughts and prayers are with him and the whole of the Johnson clan.” Fellow Conservative Angela Richardson added: “Sad news for the PM tonight as well as the rest of the Johnson family. Thoughts with them all.” Conservative Party co-chairman Amanda Milling tweeted: “Thinking of Boris Johnson and his family this evening. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.” The daughter of the barrister Sir James Fawcett, who was president of the European Commission for Human Rights in the 1970s, Mrs Johnson Wahl studied English at Oxford University.
