Prime minister Boris Johnson marries fiancee in private ceremony

The wedding, which took place at the Westminster Cathedral, was said to have been secretly planned.

The development was confirmed to Skynews by a Downing Street spokesperson on Sunday. 

He added that a more elaborate ceremony will be held next year.

“The prime minister and Ms Symonds were married yesterday afternoon in a small ceremony at Westminster Cathedral,” the spokesperson said.

“The couple will celebrate their wedding with family and friends next summer.”

According to The Sun, senior aides of the prime minister had little knowledge about the wedding beforehand.

On short notice, about 30 guests were invited to the ceremony —the maximum number of attendees allowed under COVID restrictions in England, Daily Mail reports.

It was also reported that the Cathedral was shut to the public around 1pm, and later on Saturday evening, there were pictures of musicians exiting the Prime Minister’s residence.

The couple got engaged on the island of Mustique in late 2019 and have a one-year-old son, Wilfred.

The marriage will be Johnson’s third. The first was in 1987 when he married Allegra Mostyn-Owen at age 23.

He later wedded Marina Wheeler in 1993 but they divorced in 2018. The union produced four children: Lara Lettice, Cassia Peaches, Milo Arthur, and Theodore Apollo. TheCableng
