London : Britain Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Saturday married his fiancée Carrie Symonds in a secret ceremony at Westminster Cathedral, the local newspapers reported.

A spokeswoman for Johnson's Downing Street office declined to comment on the reports.

According to the report by the Sun, the guests were invited at the last moment and even the senior officials at Johnson's office were not aware of the wedding plan.

Weddings in England are currently limited to 30 people due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The Catholic cathedral was suddenly locked down at 1:30 p.m. (1230 GMT) and Symonds, 33, arrived 30 minutes later in a limo, in a long white dress with no veil, both reports said.

Johnson, 56, and Symonds, 33, have been living together in Downing Street since Johnson became prime minister in 2019.

Last year, the couple had announced that they are engaged and are expecting a baby. In April 2020, they were blessed by a son who was named Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson.

Interestingly, the Sun had reported earlier this month that the wedding invitations have been sent to the close family members for July 2022.

Johnson's last marriage was to Marina Wheeler, a lawyer. They had four children together but announced in September 2018 that they had separated.
