Boris Johnson and his fiancee Carrie Symonds are to “celebrate their wedding” in summer next year, it has been reported.

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

The paper said details of where they will marry remained a secret.

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

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

The paper suggested they had delayed the wedding until 2022 to ensure it was not 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, a limit of 50 applies in Scotland to weddings and receptions and there is no limit on the numbers in Northern Ireland for ceremonies – venues must decide how many people they can safely welcome – but receptions are not currently permitted.

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

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

Born in April 2020, Wilfred was the third baby born to a serving prime minister in recent history.

Mr Johnson and Ms Symonds also have a dog, Dilyn.
