A month or so ago, we heard a rumor that Jon Snow and Ygritte were engaged. As we did some digging, however, we found out it was a false alarm. Or was it… Fast forward to today and we can finally break the legit news that Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are engaged! Swoon.
The twosome, who met on the set of Game of Thrones in 2012, had the most adorable on-screen romance during the show. It also gave us that famous line, “You know nothin’ Jon Snow” which we definitely have printed on a t-shirt (yeah, we’re cool). Well, turns out Jon Snow does know a little bit about wooing the ladies, as he persuaded the beautiful Rose Leslie to say yes. And we’re already looking for a hat to wear when our invite comes through.
Kit and Rose announced their engagement in the British newspaper, The Times, on Tuesday 26 September, in a super traditional way. The announcement reads:
The engagement is announced between Kit, younger son of David and Deborah Harington of Worcestershire, and Rose, middle daughter of Sebastian and Candy Leslie of Aberdeenshire.
Well, they’re certainly not the kind of people to sell their engagement news to People magazine (not that there’s anything wrong with that, ahem). However, People were the ones to break the news that the pair had actually dated for a year and separated, before reconciling and going public at the Olivier Awards in 2016. So, maybe they’ll get first dibs on wedding snaps?
We’re already feeling all warm and smooshy that these two will finally be tying the knot, but then we came across the things Kit had said about Rose and now our hearts are actually going to explode. He told Vogue that it was “easy” to fall in love with his co-star. He also said that his favorite memory of filming Game of Thrones so far was when they went to Iceland…
Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love
Bestill our beating hearts! We think these two are a match made in
