Despite their long-standing rule that "I cook, and he puts everything in the dishwasher", Mrs May revealed that Philip has surprised her by rustling up "a very good mushroom risotto" since her busy schedule as Prime Minister has left her less time for the kitchen.

Theresa May has said she is not interested in being "popular", in an interview with US Vogue magazine, while posing for a cover shoot with superstar photographer Annie Leibovitz.

An interview and photoshoot with USA fashion magazine Vogue, published online on Monday, reveals another side to British Prime Minister Theresa May. She added: "We were about to walk down a ramp, and he said it might be a bit awkward".

Her status as Britain's second woman prime minister has frequently earned her comparisons with Baroness Thatcher since taking office last July.

The Prime Minister spoke out for the first time about the incident during an interview with fashion magazine American Vogue.

"I mean, obviously he has, uh.it was a stunning election victory, in that he's someone who has not been involved in politics". She was under pressure then to confront the president over his "unacceptable talk" about women.

The shoot, by iconic celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz, took place a year ago at the PM's country retreat in Chequers, and shows May wearing an L.K.Bennett coat and dress.

"It's not a popularity stakes, being prime minister", Ms May told the magazine. "I think it's very important that people feel that politicians are holding faith with them".

Asked if she was surprised about the media storm surrounding her decision to wear a pair of leather pants worth nearly £1,000 in an interview with a Sunday newspaper magazine, she said: "Look, throughout my political career, people have commented on what I wear - that's just something that happens and you accept that". So yes, I did vote to remain. "You just get on with life".

The Daily Telegraph reported that in one of the shots, May is seen wearing a £450 ($556) red coat with a £1,200 ($1,482) jumper from London-based brand Egg while in another, she is wearing a navy £225 ($278) dress and matching £425 ($525) coat, both by British label L.K Bennett. "But also what's important is that the country feels, I think, that it wants to come together".
