U.K. PM Boris Johnson marries fiancee in secret ceremony, say media reports

Earlier this month, it was reported that wedding invitations had been sent to friends and family for July 2022.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his fiancée Carrie Symonds married on Saturday in a small private ceremony in London, U.K. newspapers reported.

Mr. Johnson’s office declined to comment on reports in the Mail on Sunday and the Sun that the couple wed at the Roman Catholic Westminster Cathedral in front of a small group of friends and family.

The Sun said senior staff in Mr. Johnson’s 10 Downing St office were unaware of the wedding plan. Both newspapers said guests were invited at the last minute to the central London ceremony.

The Catholic cathedral was suddenly locked down at 1:30 p.m. (1230 GMT) and Ms. Symonds, 33, arrived 30 minutes later in a limo, in a long white dress with no veil, both reports said.

Under current coronavirus restrictions in England, weddings can be attended by a maximum of 30 people.

Mr. Johnson, 56, and 33-year-old Ms. Symonds, an environmental campaigner, announced their engagement in February 2020 and have a son together, 1-year-old Wilfred.

Earlier this month the Sun had reported that wedding invitations had been sent to friends and family for July 2022.

The marriage would be Ms. Symonds’ first and Johnson’s third. He has at least five other children from previous relationships.

The last British Prime Minister to marry in office was Lord Liverpool in 1822.

Wishes pour in

Politicians sent congratulations after the news was reported.

Northern Ireland First Minister Arlene Foster tweeted: “Huge congratulations to Boris Johnson & Carrie Symonds on your wedding today.”

The reported nuptials come after a tumultuous political week for Mr. Johnson, who was accused by former top aide Dominic Cummings on Wednesday of bungling the government’s response to the coronavirus and being “unfit for the job.”

On Friday, an ethics inquiry found the Prime Minister acted “unwisely” in renovating his Downing Street apartment without knowing where the money had come from, though it cleared him of misconduct.
