British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his fiancee Carrie Symonds have gotten married in a secret ceremony at Westminster Cathedral.
The 56 year old Johnson and Symonds, 33, got married at London’s main Roman Catholic church in central London on Saturday afternoon, May 29, in front of their family and friends.
A Downing Street spokeswoman said on Sunday morning, May 30: “The Prime Minister and Ms Symonds were married yesterday afternoon in a small ceremony at Westminster Cathedral.”
This is the first time a British leader has married in office in 199 years.
The prime minister’s office said that the couple would celebrate with family and friends next summer.
This is Boris Johnson’s third marriage, and Carrie Symonds’s first. They announced their engagement in February 2020.
This came after Johnson reached a divorce settlement with his wife Marina Wheeler, whom he has four children.
