Marina Claire Wheeler QC is a lawyer from the United Kingdom. Public law, especially human rights, is her specialty and she serves on the Bar Discipline Tribunal. She was promoted to Queen’s Counsel in 2016.
She is the ex-wife of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the author of The Lost Homestead: My Mother, Partition, and the Punjab (2020).
She was born in Berlin in 1964 to BBC correspondent Charles Wheeler and his Indian Punjabi Sikh second wife Dip Singh. Shirin Wheeler, her older sister, is the one she looks up to.
At Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, Wheeler wrote for the student magazine Cantab in the early 1980s, after attending the European School of Brussels.
By chance, she became friends with Boris Johnson while attending the European School.
Wheeler married her childhood friend Boris Johnson, whose previous marriage had ended 12 days earlier, on May 8, 1993, while she was pregnant.
In Brussels, where he was covering the European Parliament for The Daily Telegraph, they had reconnected and teamed up. Lara Lettice, their oldest child and the couple’s firstborn, was born on June 12, 1993.
After 25 years of marriage, Johnson and Wheeler announced in September 2018 that they had split “many months ago” and that divorce proceedings had started.
In February 2020, they came to a financial agreement, and by November 2020, the divorce was legally finalized.
Wheeler stated that she had been diagnosed with cervical cancer earlier in the year, underwent two procedures, and was now in remission in August 2019.
