All eyes are on Theresa May as she prepares to take the reins as U.K. Prime Minister this week, but her husband, or new 'first gentleman,' is also under the microscope.
May will be the second ever female prime minister to take power in the U.K. following Margaret Thatcher's decade in power throughout the 1980s. Her leadership follows David Cameron's resignation after his failed campaign to keep the U.K. in the European Union.
It means interest will also be directed at May's husband Philip, who is already being referred to as Britain's incoming 'first husband' or 'first gentleman.'
The two met at a Conservative Association dance party while Theresa May was studying geography at Oxford, thanks to an introduction by Pakistan's future leader Benazir Bhutto.
"It was at an Oxford University Conservative Association disco, of all the things, and I remember I was sitting talking to Benazir and Philip came over and she said 'oh, do you know Philip May?' and the rest is history, as they say," Theresa told BBC Radio 4 program Desert Island Discs back in 2014.
Theresa said they were drawn to each other at first over a joint interest in politics, and reports suggest the two share a passion for cricket.
The couple tied the knot in 1980 and have now been married 36 years and have no children.
Philip May has built a career as a banker. His now deleted LinkedIn page previously listed him as a relationship manager at Capital Group as of 2005, according to media reports, which also say he worked as a fund manager at de Zoete & Bevan between 1979 and 1983, before moving on to Prudential Portfolio Managers where he worked until 2000, followed by a stint at Deutsche Asset Management U.K. that ended in 2005.
A Capital Group representative confirmed Philip's position at the company, explaining that he works with U.K. clients to ensure "they are happy with the services being delivered...and that we understand their goals. Philip was not involved with our investment research or portfolio management activities."
Throughout their long-lasting marriage, Theresa May has called him her "rock," especially in the wake of her parents' passing in her mid-20s — her father dying in a car crash and her mother from multiple sclerosis.
Speaking on the BBC's Desert Island Discs program, Theresa said "crucially I had huge support in my husband and that was very important for me. I mean, he was a real rock for me, he has been all the time we've been married, but particularly then of course being faced with the loss of both parents within a relatively short space of time."
Undoubtedly, his support will be essential as Theresa takes the prime ministerial reigns on July 13.
