BORIS Johnson is ready to follow in Margaret Thatcher’s footsteps when he leaves the number 10 next month.
The outgoing Prime Minister, 58, is looking for a new marital home with his wife Carrie Johnson, 34, and their two children in posh Dulwich Village, south London.
Mrs Thatcher was making her way to the quiet suburb with husband Denis when she was ousted from office in 1990.
Despite reports of financial strain and thousands of expenses to transform their Downing Street home, the couple are said to be on a budget of up to £3million to buy a flat.
A source said: “Carrie and Boris are looking for a place to put down roots, away from the glare of central London.
“Now they have Wilfred and Romy, a family house with a large garden is a must. This is exactly what Dulwich can offer.
“The irony that he wanted to emulate Churchill but ended up following in Thatcher’s footsteps when he left the premiership has not escaped peers.”
Last month, the couple hosted a belated wedding party at the 18th-century Daylesford House in Gloucs.
Covid rules had forced them to limit celebrations when they tied the knot in a small secret wedding at Westminster Cathedral in May 2021.
Before the couple moved to Downing Street and had their two children, the couple lived in a flat overlooking Brunswick Park in Camberwell, south London.
