UK PM Johnson marries fiancee in secret ceremony – reports

In a Secret Ceremony at Westminster Cathedral on Saturday, British Premier Boris Johnson had married his fiancée Carrie Symonds, reported by the Sun and Mail on Sunday.

A Johnson Downing Street spokesperson refused to comment on the reports.

Both journals said that at the last minute, guests were invited to central London and said that Johnson’s senior officers themselves did not know about the wedding plans.

Weddings in England are currently limited to 30 people due to COVID-19 restrictions.

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

Johnson, 56, and Symonds, 33, have been living together in Downing Street since Johnson became prime minister in 2019.

Last year they announced they were engaged and that they were expecting a child, and their son, Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson, was born in April 2020.

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

Johnson, once known by Britain’s tabloid media as ‘Bonking Boris,’ has a complicated privacy.

He was once sacked from the political team of the Conservative Party while lying against a non-marital affair. He has been divorced twice and rejects the number of kids he has born.

The Marina Wheeler was Johnson’s final marriage, an attorney. They had four children together, but they had separated in September 2018.
