UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson (56) and his fiancee Carrie Symonds (33) got married in a secretly planned wedding at Westminster Cathedral.

He is the first PM to get married while in office in nearly 200 years.

Downing Street spokesman says it was a “small ceremony” on Saturday (29) afternoon.

The couple would celebrate again with family and friends next summer, with their honeymoon also delayed until then, he added.

According to the Mail on Sunday only 30 guests were invited to the ceremony at short notice – the maximum number of attendees allowed under Covid-19 restrictions in England.

The Prime Minister has already returned to work.
