Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson is a British politician who has been Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Conservative Party since 2019.

From 2016 to 2018, he served as Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, and from 2008 to 2016, he was Mayor of London.



From 2001 until 2008, Johnson served as the MP for Henley before moving to Uxbridge and South Ruislip in 2015.

Johnson was educated at Eton College and Balliol College, Oxford, where he majored in Classics. In 1986, he was elected as the Oxford Union’s president.

The Daily Telegraph’s Brussels reporter and political columnist from 1989 to 1999, and editor of The Spectator from 1999 to 2005, are two of his most notable achievements.

Under the leadership of Conservative Party leaders Michael Howard and David Cameron, Johnson served as an MP’s shadow minister. Resigned from the House of Commons in 2008 to become London’s mayor, and was re-elected in 2012.

Johnson was elected to represent Uxbridge and South Ruislip in the 2015 general election. He decided not to run for mayor again the following year.

In the 2016 EU membership referendum, he played a key role in the victorious Vote Leave campaign for Brexit.

His appointment as Foreign Secretary by Theresa May following the Brexit vote has since been terminated due to his displeasure with the Chequers Agreement and May’s attitude to Brexit.

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.
