British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has married his fiancee Carrie Symonds in a secret ceremony at Westminster Cathedral, reports suggested on Saturday.

Though Downing Street has declined to comment, there have been some official congratulatory messages circulating on social media.

Work and Pensions Secretary Therese Coffey in a tweet said: “Congratulations @BorisJohnson and @carriesymonds on your marriage today”.

Northern Ireland’s First Minister Arlene Foster also wished the newlyweds a “huge congratulations” on Twitter.

According to the news sources the wedding was held in front of close friends and family on Saturday.

According to a report published by the Mail on Sunday,  30 guests were invited to the ceremony at short notice – the maximum number of attendees allowed under Covid restrictions in England.

A small number of church officials were involved in preparations for the Catholic ceremony, which was officiated by Father Daniel Humphreys, it added.

If true, known for his colourful love life, 56-year-old Johnson is going to be the second British prime minister to marry while in office and the first in nearly two centuries with Robert Jenkinson the last in 1822.

The pair got engaged in December 2019, and have a one-year-old baby son, Wilfred.

Mr. Johnson and Ms. Symonds were the first unmarried couple to live in Downing Street, having moved in July 2019.
