Boris Johnson and fiancee Carrie Symonds are set to get married in summer next year, it has been reported. The couple have sent out save-the-date cards to friends and family to ‘celebrate their wedding’ on Saturday July 30, 2022, according to The Sun. The prime minister, 55, and Miss Symonds, 33, have been engaged since late 2019 but, like many couples, they have had to postpone their nuptials due to the pandemic. Currently, a maximum of 30 guests are allowed to attend a wedding but the PM is expected to lift restrictions next month.
Details of where the couple will tie the knot remain a secret but friends say they are holding off until next year so they can throw a grand, Covid-safe celebration. However, it is understood that the PM’s sprawling Buckinghamshire country residence, Chequers, is tipped to host the ceremony. Another venue that could be on the cards is the Port Lympne safari park in Kent, where Miss Symonds works for a conservation charity.
This will be Mr Johnson’s third marriage – having finalised his divorce from second wife Marina Wheeler in 2020 – and the first for Miss Symonds.
They became the first unmarried couple to move into Downing Street in 2019 after Mr Johnson won a landslide General Election, with Miss Symonds being one of the youngest partners of a prime minister in history.
