In a secret ceremony, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson married Carrie Symonds on Saturday (29), his office announced. The wedding was not announced in advance.
According to reports in the UK press, guests were called in at the last minute to the event held at Westminster Cathedral in central London and even the most senior members of the Cabinet of Boris were unaware of the Prime Minister’s plans. “The couple will celebrate the wedding with their family and friends next summer,” the prime minister’s office said on Sunday (30).
Weddings in England are currently limited to 30 people due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Boris, 56, and Symonds, 33, have lived together in Downing Street since becoming Prime Minister in 2019. On Saturday the cathedral was brutally closed at 1:30 p.m. The bride arrived 30 minutes later in a limousine, wearing an unveiled long white dress, according to the press.
The couple announced their engagement last year while expecting a child – Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson was born in April 2020. Boris has a complicated private life. He was previously fired from the Conservative Party’s political team as an opponent for lying about an extramarital affair.
He has been divorced twice and refuses to say how many children he has had. His last marriage was to lawyer Marina Wheeler. They had four children and announced their separation in September 2018.
