The Foreign Secretary was seen watching on at the Alexander Arena alongside her teenage daughters Frances, 16, and Liberty, 13 as they took in the action on the athletics track. Ms Truss’ husband Hugh O’Leary, who she married in 2000, was spotted while Andy Street with her while Andy Street, a Conservative party politician and West Midlands Mayor, also joined them.
Last month, she revealed her two teenage daughters are currently involved in managing her social media campaign.
Ms Truss told the Daily Telegraph: “My oldest daughter’s working on the digital team.
“She’s done a computing GCSE so she’s helping out on that. And my younger daughter was there as well, giving general political advice.”
Later on Saturday, the Foreign Secretary called on the Tories to “unite” to take on Sir Keir Starmer and the Labour Party as she continues to gain support from current and former Cabinet ministers.
On Thursday, Kay Burley slammed the Tory leadership candidate for her constant U-turning on policies, asking her if the “real Liz Truss will please stand up”.
The Sky News host brought up the Foreign Secretary’s apparent U-turns on a number of areas – including Brexit, Ukraine, the green belt, civil servant’s pay, the abolition of the monarchy, and whether or not to arm Taiwan.
Ms Burley said: “Final question for you. You were a Remainer and now you are not. You supported Brits to fight in Ukraine and then you did not.
“You wanted to build on the green belt and now you do not. You wanted to abolish the monarchy and now you do not.
“You wanted to arm Taiwan and now I am not sure whether you are saying you do or you do not. You wanted to cut civil servants’ pay in the regions and then you said you did not.”
Ms Burley then paused, before continuing: “Will the real Liz Truss please stand up.”
The question sparked applause among the audience as Ms Truss looked sheepish before responding.
