Following their ‘secret’ wedding, Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds took a two-day holiday, with the PM ‘picking up the tab.’
Boris Johnson spent two days away from Downing Street following his covert wedding to fiancé Carrie Symonds, according to No 10, however the venue was not revealed.
Following a review of the Prime Minister’s finances, a spokeswoman claimed on Tuesday that the Prime Minister had “paid everything” for the marriage.
On Saturday, Mr Johnson and Ms Symonds married in a secret ceremony at Westminster Cathedral, and they aim to have a larger celebration next year, when Covid restrictions are likely to be loosened.
“The PM spent Sunday and Monday away but is now back working from Downing Street,” a No 10 spokeswoman said.
“It is a personal matter therefore I won’t be getting into any further detail,” the spokesman said when asked where the newlyweds went after rumours that they were going to the beach.
After a Tory contributor originally helped cover the price, Mr Johnson has been under fire for the expensive improvements to his Downing Street flat.
The wedding was totally paid for by the Prime Minister, according to a representative for No 10.
Mr Johnson’s third marriage came amid growing concerns that the Indian version of coronavirus could jeopardize the plan to lift all restrictions on June 21.
“I haven’t spoken to the PM this morning but the whole of Government continues to monitor the latest scientific information and data, as we have done throughout the pandemic,” the spokesman said when asked if the Prime Minister was updated on Covid-19 numbers during his mini-break.
Despite the wedding venue, the Prime Minister’s office was unable to confirm if the Prime Minister is a Roman Catholic.
The spokesman added, “That’s not a question I’ve asked him.”
