Sir Keir Rodney Starmer KCB QC is a British politician and former barrister who has been the Labour Party’s Leader and Opposition Leader since 2020. Since 2015, he has served as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Holborn and St Pancras. Starmer has been classified as being on the soft left of the Labour Party in terms of ideology.
Starmer was born in London and raised in Surrey, where he attended Reigate Grammar School, an elite state school that later became an independent school while he was a student. He earned a Bachelor of Laws degree from the University of Leeds in 1985 and a postgraduate Bachelor of Civil Law degree from St Edmund Hall, Oxford, in 1986.
Who is Keir Starmer’s wife, Victoria?
Victoria Starmer is a lawyer, and she and her husband married in 2007.
In their £1.75 million home in Camden, North London, Sir Keir and Victoria are said to reside together.
Lady Victoria previously worked as a solicitor, and her husband was knighted for his efforts to abolish the death penalty worldwide.
Victoria is said to presently work in the field of occupational health.
Victoria is a devout believer of the Jewish faith, and she insists that her children learn about it so that they can “recognize the faith of part of their grandfather’s family, which is very significant.”
“Just carving out that tradition, that bit of faith on Friday is incredibly important, because we get together and we do Zoom prayers now,” Sir Keir said.
Victoria is relatively unknown, as the couple prefers to keep their relationship private.
Do they have any kids?
Sir Keir and Victoria have two children together, however the names of their children have never been made public.
In North London, their son and daughter reside with them.
The children are purportedly being raised to be aware of their Jewish heritage.
Sir Keir expressed his happiness and relief in September 2020 when a coronavirus test result for one of his children came back negative.
Sir Keir described his family’s Friday night supper custom to the Jewish Chronicle, in which his wife’s family is welcomed over for a meal.
