LONDON – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson married his fiancee Carrie Symonds in a low-key ceremony in London Saturday, a Downing Street spokesman said Sunday.
The pair exchanged vows in Westminster Cathedral on Saturday in front of a small group of close friends and family members.
“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 Downing Street spokesman said Sunday morning.
Johnson has become the first British prime minister to get married while in office in nearly 200 years.
Some government ministers sent their congratulations to the newly-married couple on social media.
It is Johnson’s third marriage, having finalized his divorce from his second wife Marina Wheeler in 2020.
He and Symonds have a son, Wilfred, who was born in April 2020.
