Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau and his wife have announced separation after 18 years of marriage.
The Office of Prime Minister Trudeau informed about it on Wednesday. With the announcement, their 18-year-long conjugal relationship has come to an end.
According to international media outlets, Prime Minister Trudeau and his wife Sophie have agreed to divorce and signed documents for separation.
In a statement, Mr Trudeau's office said that while the couple had signed separation agreement they will still make public appearances.
"They have worked to ensure that all legal and ethical steps with regards to their decision to separate have been taken, and will continue to do so moving forward," the statement said, adding they would be on holiday as a family next week.
The two married in 2005 and have three children together: Xavier, 15, Ella-Grace, 14, and Hadrien, nine.
They have been seen together publicly less frequently in recent years, though they attended the coronation of King Charles III together in May and hosted US President Joe Biden in Canada in March.
The two began dating in 2003, when Ms Sophie Trudeau was working as a TV personality. She is also known for her charity work around mental health and eating disorders.
Mr Trudeau was first elected prime minister in 2015. (with inputs from Agencies)
