Boris Johnson's son Wilfred stole the limelight at the G7 as the one-year-old toddled around in front of world leaders during a beach BBQ.

The Prime Minister's wife introduced her son to the G7 leaders and their partners during the event at Carbis Baby, Cornwall.

Wilfred, who was dressed for the occasion in a white shirt and blue shorts, was seen toddling towards Mrs Johnson, 33, to the delight of First Lady Jill Biden who beamed at him and a smiling Brigitte Macron.

Drinking pale ales and still wearing a suit and tie, Mr Johnson, 56, was seen speaking to French President Emmanuel Macron on the beach as the group relaxed following seven hours of meetings.

It's the second time Wilfred has been seen at the G7, which comes nearly two weeks on from his parents' low-key wedding ceremony at Westminster Cathedral.

Before the BBQ, the Red Arrows set off from Carbis Bay and looped round into an arc shape several times before splitting off.

Residents at St Ives harbour cheered with delight when the famous jets moved into formation.

Earlier today Mr Johnson fuelled a growing row with the European Union as he warned he “will obviously not hesitate” to trigger a key clause of the Brexit deal.

Ramping up diplomatic tensions with the EU, the Prime Minister threatened to use Article 16 to block an imminent ban on sending chilled meats from Great Britain to Northern Ireland.

The Prime Minister met Mr Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen and European Council president Charles Michel in the margins of the G7 summit.

He said: "I've talked to some of our friends here today who do seem to misunderstand that the UK is a single country and a single territory.

"I think they just need to get that into their heads."

Following his comments, Mr Johnson also met Joe Biden and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison had talks in the margins of the G7 summit.

A Downing Street spokesman said: “They discussed a number of issues of mutual concern, including the Indo-Pacific region.

“They agreed that the strategic context in the Indo-Pacific was changing and that there was a strong rationale for deepening co-operation between the three governments.

“They welcomed the forthcoming visits and exercises in the Indo-Pacific by the carrier strike group, led by HMS Queen Elizabeth.”
