Carrie Johnson, 33, has a background in the Conservative Party, which she joined in 2010. She worked on Boris Johnson’s campaign when he was re-elected mayor of London. She then became the party’s press director, but has since 2018 worked for the environmental organization Oceana.
For the third time lucky
Boris Johnson and Carrie Johnson, who have son Wilfred Johnson together, were the first unmarried couple to live together in the Prime Minister’s home at 10 Downing Street. Boris Johnson, 56, is the first British Prime Minister to marry during his tenure since Lord Liverpool married Mary Chester in 1822.
He also became the first prime minister since 1769 to divorce and marry during his tenure as the country’s political leader. But the fact that Johnson had been married twice before, and divorced twice, was, according to The Times, no obstacle to the wedding because his previous marriages did not take place within the Catholic Church.
