Media mogul Rupert Murdoch and model-actress Jerry Hall have married in London, the AP reports. They were photographed emerging with smiles Friday from Spencer House, an 18th-century aristocratic palace in central London. Murdoch's News UK confirmed Murdoch and Hall, who announced their engagement in January, had married. Murdoch and Hall are due to hold a celebration ceremony Saturday at St. Bride's, the "journalists' church" on London's Fleet Street. But the day wasn't purely about love: "If Trump nominated some Republicans may stay home, but not nearly as many Dems already abstaining or crossing over!" Murdoch tweeted Friday.

It is the fourth marriage for 84-year-old Murdoch, executive chairman of News Corp. It is 59-year-old Hall's first marriage. She and her former partner Mick Jagger had an unofficial private Hindu marriage ceremony in Bali, Indonesia, in 1990. During divorce proceedings in 1999 a British court declared the marriage invalid.
