Boris Johnson ‘marries Carrie Symonds in secret wedding ceremony at Westminster Cathedral’

Boris Johnson married his partner Carrie Symonds in a secret ceremony at Westminster Cathedral, according to reports.

The Prime Minister and Ms Symonds, 33, tied the knot on Saturday with only a handful of church officials aware of the preparations, according to The sun. The wedding had been planned six months ago.

About 30 guests, including close friends and family, were reportedly invited to the event in the cathedral near Downing Street.

For request of The independent, No 10 declined to comment on the story. A # 10 aide told the PA News Agency, “I was strictly told not to comment.”

Mr Johnson, 56, and Ms Symonds were engaged in late 2019 and their son Wilfred was born in April 2020 during the first coronavirus lockdown.

This is the Prime Minister’s third marriage, after finalizing his divorce from his second wife Marina Wheeler in 2020.

On Saturday a witness said The sun that the cathedral was forced to go on lockdown for the wedding service.

“It was closed for about half an hour and they all came out after,” they said. “It’s not very often that we have weddings here, and when they came out they were all pushed into a car.”

Following reports of the ceremony, the Prime Minister of Northern Ireland, Arlene Foster, congratulated the couple.

Therese Coffey, the Work and Pensions Secretary, tweeted: “Congratulations @BorisJohnson and @carriesymonds on your wedding.”

Weddings in England are currently subject to coronavirus restrictions, meaning ceremonies are limited to a maximum of 30 guests at locations secured by Covid.

Reports of the marriage come just days after the couple allegedly sent back-up cards to family and friends for an event on July 30, 2022.

It had been reported that the couple were preparing to celebrate their wedding next year with a ‘lavish party’ – although Downing Street declined to comment on ‘the personal matter’ when asked about the reports more early this week.
