GEORGE Osborne is due to tie the knot with former aide Thea Rogers in Somerset.
Here is everything you need to know about his wife-to-be.
Who is Thea Rogers?
Rogers was previously Deliveroo's chief customer officer.
She's worked at the food takeaway startup after taking on a high-powered role as VP, head of global comms and policy, in January 2017.
Prior to that job, she served as chief of staff at HM Treasury for over a year and had spent several years as former chancellor George Osborne’s chief of staff.
She was "a BBC producer hired by Osborne to improve his media image," wrote the Financial Times in 2015.

Before working as special adviser to the Chancellor, and being promoted to Chief of Staff in 2015, she worked for the BBC as a political editor's producer and a senior producer on Newsnight.
The Oxford Uni graduate provided her political expertise on Labour's 2005 re-election campaign, before switching sides, to the Conservatives.
She was at the centre of a row over David Cameron's resignation honours list, with then Lib Dem leader Tim Farron saying it was "full of cronies".
Rogers received an OBE after a furore when the ex PM's list was leaked – which included rich Tory donors and aides such as his wife's stylist.

When is Thea Rogers' wedding to George Osborne?
The couple announced their engagement in April 2021, with Mr Osborne saying at the time: "I have probably never been happier in my life."
They will seal their love at the 14th Century St Mary's Church in the Somerset village of Bruton on Saturday, July 8, 2023.
This is also where they own a five-bedroom Grade II-listed house, bought for £1.6 million in 2020.
The event will likely be attended by a string of political figures including former Prime Minister David Cameron and Levelling-Up Secretary Michael Gove.
Does Thea Rogers have any children?
In July 2021, they welcomed their first child together, a son named Beau.
Their second son, Arthur, was born on December 30, 2022.
George has two children from his previous marriage to Frances.
What does Thea Rogers do for a living?
In March 2022, Rogers announced she will be leaving Deliveroo after five years to focus on her family and future career.
She decided to depart from her role as Chief Customer Officer, stating: “My maternity leave has given me the chance to reflect on what I want to do next, and now is a great time for me to begin a new chapter as well as to spend more time in the next few months with my baby, Beau.”
