British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his fiancée Carrie Symonds got married in a secret ceremony in London’s Westminster Cathedral.
According to media reports, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson married his partner Carrie Symonds.
The couple tied the knot at a small, private ceremony at Westminster Cathedral in London.
Johnson, 56, and Symonds, 33, have one-year-old son Wilfred.
Great Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson (56) married his 33-year-old partner Carrie Symonds in a “secret ceremony” in the Catholic Westminster Cathedral in London on Saturday afternoon. As reported by the British media, the marriage took place in a small circle of relatives and friends in London.
The invited guests should only have found out at the last minute, writes «Daily Mirror». Even high-ranking members of his office were unaware of Johnson’s wedding plans. The operation, which has been kept secret for six months, was called “Cloak and Dagger” – two superheroes from a Marvel comic book.
According to “The Sun»The bride wore a« breathtaking long and flowing white dress ». At first there was no information about the groom’s clothes.
The news of the wedding came as a surprise: just a few days ago the tabloid “The Sun” reported that Johson and Symonds wanted to get married next summer. The couple sent cards asking them to mark July 30, 2022 as their wedding date.
For Johnson it is the third marriage
The 56-year-old prime minister and the 33-year-old former head of communications at his Conservative Party have been engaged since the end of 2019, and their son Wilfred was born in April 2020. According to The Sun, Johnson and Symonds were married by the same priest who had baptized Wilfred. The little son was therefore also at the wedding party.
Johnson has been married twice and has at least six children, four of them from his second marriage to lawyer Marina Wheeler and a daughter born in 2009 after an affair. He left uncommented information about another alleged child from an extramarital relationship.
If Johnson and Symonds have actually tied the knot, Johnson would only be the second British Prime Minister to marry during his tenure. The last British Prime Minister at the time, Robert Jenkinson, did this in 1822.
