LONDON – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his fiancee Carrie Symonds got married in a small private ceremony in London on Saturday, UK newspapers reported.

Johnson’s office declined to comment on reports in the Mail on Sunday and The Sun that the couple had married at Westminster Roman Catholic Cathedral in front of a small group of friends and family.

The Sun said senior officials in Johnson’s office at 10 Downing St. were unaware of the wedding plan.

Under current coronavirus restrictions in England, weddings can be attended by a maximum of 30 people.

Politicians sent congratulations after the news broke. Northern Ireland’s Prime Minister Arlene Foster tweeted: “Kudos to Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds on your wedding today.”

The reported nuptials come after a tumultuous political week for Johnson, who was accused Wednesday by former senior aide Dominic Cummings of spoiling the government’s response to the coronavirus and of being “unfit for work”. On Friday, an ethics probe found the Prime Minister had acted “recklessly” in renovating his Downing Street apartment without knowing where the money was coming from, although he cleared him.
