She’s often pictures dressed to the nines at glamorous events across the world.

But  Akshata Murty, 43, who is married to prime minister Rishi Sunak, opted for a more casual look as she walked her dog Nova in London today.

Arriving outside Downing Street, the mother-of-two made the last of the summer in practical trainers, navy slacks and a striped T-shirt.

Adding a touch of glam to the ensemble, Akshata added a pair of sunglasses and elaborate necklace which she paired with a £1000 Prada satchel. 

The billionaire’s daughter, whose wardrobe often includes luxury items, proved she’s a woman of the people with a Habitat shopping bag.

 Meanwhile the family’s Red Fox Labrador Nova – who is clearly well-trained – walked off the lead a few paces ahead of Akshata.

It has been rumoured that Askshata has been working with the stylist of former Tory first lady Samantha Cameron in recent months.

Mr Sunak and Ms Murthy have built up a joint fortune of £730million, the Sunday Times Rich List revealed in May, making him the first frontline politician to feature in the annual wealth rankings since its inception in 1989.

Mr Sunak made big money in the City of London before entering politics.

But the bulk of the cash is from his wife’s stake in IT giant Infosys, set up by her father N. R. Narayana Murthy, one of the richest men in India who has been described as the father of the Indian IT sector and ‘one of the 12 greatest businessmen of all time’.

Despite their wealth, it’s been speculated that Akshata has attempted to  appear slightly more accessible. 

On a recent trip to Japan she was seen wearing a £95 fuchsia cashmere sweater from Chinti & Parker, plus £165 island green trousers from ME+EM.

Even the night before the Coronation she wore Self Portrait to a reception at Buckingham Palace – a brand that’s the very epitome of the image she’s trying to portray. 

At £400 her dress was by no means cheap, but it’s at the upper end of the high street and within the reach of a middle class mum splashing out for a special occasion.  

It marks a trend towards her choosing upmarket British brands over luxury labels. 

Take, for instance, a short look back at her outfits in 2020. 

For a December date night with her husband in upmarket Mayfair, the IT heiress wore a box-fresh pair of £445 Gucci trainers, a REDValentino shearling and leather coat costing £1,630 and a leather skirt worth more then £1,000.
