Former chancellor George Osborne has been pictured in public with his new son Beau for the first time since his birth last month.

Baby boy Beau was born in London weighing 6lb 9oz on July 14, with his smiling father, Mr Osborne, 50, and fiancée Thea Rogers, 39, pictured with their newborn in Hampshire today. 

The happy couple, who worked together at Downing Street, had announced their engagement to one another in April. 

Beau can be seen draped in blue clothes and blankets, and sporting an impressive mop of dark hair.

Mr Osborne and Ms Rogers were attending the wedding of TV chef Clodagh McKenna and millionaire Harry Herbert, whose father Henry was Lord Porchester, the 7th Earl of Carnarvon. 

The Irish chef, 46, looked radiant in her angelic lace gown at her wedding ceremony, while Harry – who is the Queen’s godson – looked dapper in a morning suit which he teamed with a double-breasted cream waist coat and tie and a light blue hue.

The newly-weds were joined in holy matrimony at the 5000-acre estate in Highclere Castle, Hampshire, best known as the iconic setting for popular period drama Downton Abbey.

Friends described the joy shared by former Evening Standard editor George Osborne and his fiancée Deliveroo executive Thea Rogers after the birth of Beau. 

George, 49, found love with Thea, 39, two years ago, with friends describing the couple’s mood as ‘thrilled and excited’ after their son’s birth.

Thea was his Chief of Staff when he was Chancellor and before that his special adviser.

Soon after they got together he said of Thea: ‘I probably have never been happier in my life.’    

The happy couple were snapped together, along with Beau, sharing a laugh with guests at the wedding of Mr Herbert and his new wife and TV chef Clodagh McKenna in Hampshire.

Harry, 62, is the Queen’s godson and was born in Highclere Castle, best known as the location for British period drama.

Harry’s family has owned Highclere Castle since the late 17th century and his father Henry was a longtime close friend and racing manager to Queen Elizabeth II from 1969 until his death in 2001.

Her Majesty reportedly called Henry ‘Porchie,’ affectionately based on his title, Lord Porchester and he is seen appearing in the first two seasons of The Crown played by Joseph Kloska.

Harry is the CEO of Highclere Thoroughbred Racing and of The Royal Ascot Racing Club.

He is also the grandson of George Herbert, 5th Earl of Carnarvon who is best known as the financier who helped uncover the tomb of Tutankhamun in the Valley of Kings, Egypt.

He and Clodagh got engaged in October 2020 after meeting at a Fortnum and Mason lunch through mutual friends in 2017.

At the time, Harry described the meeting as a ‘sliding doors’ moment, having been single two years following a 25-year marriage, from which he has three children.

Announcing the engagement on Instagram, Clodagh shared a snap snuggled up with her partner, writing: ‘We got engaged! We are over the moon with happiness and thank everybody for the lovely warm wishes.’

Speaking to EVOKE, she previously lauded her fiancé for being ‘one of the kindest people’ she has ever met in her life.

‘He’s so lovely and he makes me be a better person. He’s made me the happiest I’ve ever been in my life. I’m so lucky.’
