Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie are set to throw a lavish wedding celebration at the Prime Minister’s Grace and Favor Mansion while he holds on to office, it has been reported.

he 16th-century country house in Buckingham had scheduled the celebration for July 30 to celebrate with her friends, the Daily Mirror reported.

On Thursday, Mr Johnson said he would step down once a new Tory leader was elected and would remain as caretaker until the autumn.

But some Tory MPs say he should leave immediately and be replaced by a deputy because he has controversially tried to hang on after 50 Tory MPs left government.

The couple tied the knot with a handful of guests in May 2021 because only 30 people were allowed in the Downing Street garden under Covid rules.

The wedding was the third marriage for Mr Johnson, who has two children with Carrie, who previously worked at Conservative headquarters where she was known as Carrie Symonds.

The plan for another celebration is likely to raise eyebrows because rule-breaking brawls at Downing Street have helped lose public confidence in the Prime Minister.

The newspaper quoted two sources as saying the party was planned for that date and that the couple were keen to continue.

“It’s hard to believe that despite all the criticism Johnson has faced over integrity and probity, one of the reasons he’s staying is to host his wedding reception at Checkers,” a Tory source told the Mirror .

“It’s a national asset, not his personal home. The Johnsons should do the decent thing and find another venue. And Boris should do the right thing and leave No 10 immediately.”

Checkers features a heated indoor pool, putting green and 1,500 acres of grounds – an idyllic wedding venue.

The mansion seemed to spring to mind for the Prime Minister as he thanked staff outside Downing Street.

As he made his round of thanks to his family, the civil service and the NHS, Mr Johnson seemed to forget where he was and said: “I’d like to thank the wonderful staff here at Checkers,” before correcting himself.”

Allies of the prime minister said the prime minister wanted to remain in office out of a sense of duty and dismissed suggestions the decision had anything to do with the party.
