U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson Marries Carrie Symonds in Surprise Ceremony

Surprise! Boris Johnson is married!

On Saturday (May 29), the 56-year-old British Prime Minister married fiancee Carrie Symonds in a private ceremony at Westminster Chapel in London, England.

The nuptials come as a surprise for many, since they previously sent out invitations for a July 2022 wedding.

“The Prime Minister and Ms. Symonds were married yesterday afternoon in a small ceremony at Westminster Cathedral. The couple will celebrate their wedding with family and friends next summer,” a spokesperson for the prime minister’s office said in a statement on Sunday via NPR.

Following their intimate ceremony, the newlyweds went to the Prime Minister’s residence at 10 Downing Street for photos in their garden.

Boris and Carrie, 33, announced in February 2020 that they were engaged. The couple welcomed their first child, son Wilfred, in April 2020.

This is the third marriage for Boris. He was married to Allegra Mostyn-Owen from 1987 to 1993, before marrying attorney Marina Wheeler in 1993. Boris and Marina were married for 25 years and had four children together before announcing their split in September 2018. This is Carrie‘s first marriage.

Carrie was formerly a communications director for Boris‘ Conservative Party.

Congrats to the newlyweds!
