Who Is Hugh O’Leary, UK Prime Minister Liz Truss’ Husband?

After winning the Tory leadership contest, Liz Truss will be the next to move into 10 Downing Street. After securing the top position in the UK government and being elected as the next UK Prime Minister, Liz Truss’ husband, Hugh O’Leary, is expected to play a bigger role in her public life. Up to this point, he has avoided the limelight, and Truss has traditionally tried to keep her family out of being the centre of attention. O’Leary has supported Truss’ every step of the way as the 47-year-old has ascended the political ladder. More focus will surely be placed on No. 10’s newest residents as the former foreign secretary gets ready to become the next prime minister.
