Who’s the glamorous college gf whom became the spouse of our freshly appointed Uk Prime Minister, Boris Johnson?
Boris Johnson and Allegra Mostyn-Owen at Oxford in 1986
Allegra Mostyn-Owen ended up being Boris Johnson’s university gf and their wife that is first years back. The set were area of the ‘bright young things’ associated with the Oxford college elite, a golden, glossy, head-turning act that is double.
Allegra, the Italian for ‘joyful’ or ‘lively’, a term which is used to annotate music that is uplifting had been allegedly ‘not’ the state she was at after (and during) her wedding to Johnson. A union that lasted six years, between 1987 and 1993, as soon as the couple eventually divorced.
The wedding was described by the Daily Mail‘as a cross between Los Angeles Dolce Vita and Brideshead Revisited’. Allegra ended up being the captivating child of art historian and Christie’s auction household Chairman, the millionaire William Mostyn-Owen along with his Italian author spouse, Gaia Servadio. Your family chair had been Woodhouse, an estate that is grade-ii-listed Shropshire. The home had been their wedding location – whenever Allegra wove plants through her locks and Johnson arrived with neither pants nor shoes.
