Is Carrie Symonds Catholic?

  • Yes

Carrie Symonds is a practising Catholic. Her religious views were reported on in September 2020.

Although Carrie’s religious views are now well known, her Catholicism has remained largely out of the spotlight. Carrie did not attend a religious school growing up. Carrie attended Godolphin and Latymer School in West London, then the University of Warwick.

On 30 May 2021, it was reported that UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson had wed Carrie Symonds in a private ceremony.

The couple had announced their engagement in February 2020. They have been romantically linked throughout the time Johnson has been in office.

Carrie and Boris Johnsons’ son, Wilfred, was baptised at Westminster. He is also Catholic.

What is Boris Johnson’s religion?

Boris Johnson is an Anglican, part of the Church of England. He was, however, baptised as Catholic.

It is thought that the UK Prime Minister abandoned his mother’s Catholicism and was confirmed as Anglican while at Eton.

In order to marry in a Catholic church, it’s possible that Boris Johnson could have had his two previous marriages recognised as annulled.
