British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his fiancee Carrie Symonds are newlyweds. His Downing Street office says they were married Saturday in a small private ceremony in London.

That confirmed reports in the Mail on Sunday and the Sun that the couple wed at the Roman Catholic Westminster Cathedral in London in front of a small group of friends and family.

The Sun said some senior staff in Johnson's office were unaware of the wedding plans. Johnson, 56, and 33-year-old Symonds, an environmental advocate, announced their engagement in February 2020 and have a son together, 1-year-old Wilfred.

The marriage is Symonds' first and Johnson's third.
