The invitations had been sent before the announcement of the resignation of the Prime Minister who had married in secret in May 2021 during a small ceremony in the Catholic Cathedral of Westminster. The ceremony was limited to 30 people due to health restrictions to fight the coronavirus, hence the party plan this year.

Cornered by an avalanche of resignations fueled by an accumulation of scandals, Boris Johnson, 58, announced his resignation from his post as leader of the Conservative Party on Thursday, but intends despite criticism to remain in Downing Street until the election of his successor by the members of his party.

“We would all like to have a grand wedding at the expense of the taxpayer in Checkers, but he will not be able to do it because the British will find it odious”, reacted on LBC radio the Labor mayor of London, Sadiq Khan.

According to him, the reasonable Tories “will not accept a situation where he will seek to remain prime minister for his personal benefit, rather than for the national interest”.

This is the third marriage for Boris Johnson, who has at least seven children, two of them with Carrie.

Boris Johnson had previously been criticized for the expensive refurbishment of his Downing Street flats, funded by a Conservative Party donor, as had, according to the Times, an expensive - ultimately abandoned - treehouse project in Checkers, for its son Wilfrid.
