But there was no reception for the guests afterwards because the first couple wanted to set a good example to the public when it came to hosting formal events.

A source revealed: “After everything Boris and Carrie have been through this year, baptising Wilfred was a very special moment.

“They shared it with a small number of people and the service was simple but beautiful, with lots of tears and laughter.

‘SPECIAL PRIVATE MOMENT’

“They’re not intending to release photographs as it was a special private moment.”

Planning was focused on the fact the country is in the midst of a pandemic.

Our source added: “It was a priority for Boris and ­Carrie that the entire ­baptism was Covid secure.

“There was no reception or party afterwards. Perhaps they’ll have a big celebration whenever they get married.”

Wilfred was born prematurely on April 29, 20 days after his father was in intensive care with coronavirus.

His middle name is a tribute to two doctors called Nick who treated the PM.

Last night, No10 declined to comment on the baptism.
