Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds are tying the knot next summer

Boris Johnson and his fiancée Carrie Symonds will “celebrate their wedding” next summer, it was reported.

According to The Sun, the couple sent family and friends save-the-date cards for an event on Saturday, July 30, 2022.

The newspaper said details of where they will get married remain a secret.

Downing Street and aides to the Prime Minister declined to comment on the report.

The couple announced their engagement in February last year – along with news that they were expecting their first child.

The newspaper suggested having the wedding postponed until 2022 to make sure it wasn’t disrupted by Covid restrictions.

Currently, a maximum of 30 people are allowed to attend a ceremony or reception in England.

In Wales, wedding receptions can have up to 30 people indoors and 50 people outdoors, in Scotland there is a maximum limit of 50 for weddings and receptions, and in Northern Ireland there is no limit on ceremonies – the venues must decide how many people they can safely welcome – but receptions are currently not allowed.

It will be Mr Johnson’s third marriage after finalizing his divorce from second wife, Marina Wheeler, in 2020.

He and Ms. Symonds have a son named Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson in tribute to their grandfathers and the doctors who saved Mr Johnson’s life when he was hospitalized with Covid-19.

Born in April 2020, Wilfred was the third incumbent Prime Minister’s baby in recent history.
Mr. Johnson and Ms. Symonds also have a dog, Dilyn.
