UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has married his fiancée, Carrie Symonds in a wedding carried out in secrecy at Westminster Cathedral in London.
According to a Downing Street spokesman, the “small and secret ceremony” took place on Saturday afternoon, May 29, 2021.
The spokesman added that the couple will celebrate again with family and friends next summer.
According to The Mail, 30 guests were invited to the ceremony at short notice – the maximum number of attendees allowed under Covid restrictions in England.
It added that a small number of church officials were involved in preparations for the Catholic ceremony, which was officiated by Father Daniel Humphreys.
On April 29, 2020, Symonds gave birth to the couple’s first child, Wilfred. In the same month, the Prime Minister was hospitalized with coronavirus.
Later in 2020, she made her first joint television appearance with Johnson to thank NHS workers for treating him in hospital and delivering their baby.
The marriage comes just days after the couple was said to have sent save-the-date cards to family and friends for an event on July 30, 2022.
The two announced they were engaged to be married in February 2020.
Johnson has four children from his second marriage with Marina Wheeler. The two announced they were splitting after 25 years of marriage in September 2018, shortly after which Johnson’s relationship with Symonds was confirmed.
He was also previously married to Allegra Mostyn-Owen for six years.
