- Prime Minister Boris Johnson held a secret wedding at the Westminster Cathedral with only 30 people in attendance
- The 56-year-old married 33-year-old fiancee Carrie Symonds
- He becomes the first Prime Minister in nearly two centuries to get married while in office
Boris Johnson has made history as becoming the first Prime Minister in nearly two centuries to get married while in office.
The 56-year-old walked down the aisle with his 33-year-old bride Carrie Symonds in a tight-knit ceremony held at the Westminster Cathedral.
Johnson and Carrie got engaged in December 2019 and have a one-year-old son together named Wilfred.
Johnson has already returned to work, with their honeymoon delayed until next summer where a proper celebration will be held.
Details of the invitees and how many of Johnson's cabinet members made it to the guest list remain scanty.
It is, however, confirmed that Johnson's dad Stanley, sister Julia, and son Wilfred were in attendance to witness the occasion.
The wedding was officiated by Father Daniel Humphreys, with very few church officials involved in the planning.
"Thank you for the kind messages. Very, very happy," the bride wrote on Instagram after the wedding.
This makes it Carrie first wedding and Johnson's third marriage.
The wedding was allowed to happen because his previous marriages, which ended in divorce, did not happen under the umbrella of the Roman Catholic Church.
Johnson first marriage was to Allegra Mostyn-Owen in 1987, followed by Marina Wheeler.
Robert Banks is the last prime minister to have a wedding while in office, in 1822.
