British Prime Minister Boris Johnson married his girlfriend Carrie Symonds on Saturday. This was announced by his office on Sunday, which confirmed previous media reports.
Johnson became the first British Prime Minister in nearly 200 years to marry while in office. “The prime minister and Mrs. Symonds got married during a small ceremony at Westminster Cathedral on Saturday afternoon. The couple will celebrate the wedding with family and friends next summer,” the office said.
Johnson, 56, has lived with Symonds, 33, in the Prime Minister’s Office on Downing Street since 2019, when the conservative politician became prime minister. Last April, their son Wilfred Lowry was born Nicholas Johnson.
The Sun newspaper said on Saturday evening that the ceremony was attended by only 30 guests, who were invited at the last minute. Currently, only 30 people in Britain can participate in wedding ceremonies due to the Coronavirus measures. The letter also wrote recently that the couple are planning a wedding until July next year, when the couple sent invitations to family and friends.
Reuters reported that the conservative prime minister had been divorced twice and refused to specify the number of his children. To date, the only British Prime Minister to marry into office was Robert Jenkinson in 1822.
