  • Description

    Canada's Prime Minister, 51-year-old Pierre Elliott Trudeau, surprised the country by secretly marrying 22-year-old Miss Margaret Sinclair in a quiet Roman Catholic ceremony in North Vancouver on Thursday evening (4 March). Mr. Trudeau has often been described in newspapers as one of the world's most eligible bachelors. His bride is the daughter of Mr. James Sinclair, a Privy Councillor, former Senator and Liberal party Leader.

    Earlier on Thursday Mr. Trudeau had left his office in Ottawa for what was thought to be a skiing vacation. Mr. Trudeau is believed to have first met his wife three years ago in Tahiti, but the wedding plans were unknown even to some members of Miss Sinclair's family.
