Born Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson on June 19, 1964, he is the eldest son of Stanley Johnson, a British politician who was the Conservative MEP for Wight & Hampshire East from 1979 to 1984. 

Boris was schooled at Eton College, where he won a scholarship, and later at Balliol College, Oxford. While at Oxford, he was friends with David Cameron, who went on to become Britain’s Prime Minister from 2010 to 2016. He was also the president of the Oxford Union – a position previously held by former Prime Minister Edward Heath (1916-2005) and former Conservative leader William Hague.
