Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, on-screen and off-screen lovers of the famous TV show Game of Thrones, are reportedly engaged. Harington still portrays the renowned role of Jon Snow and Leslie played Ygritte till season 4 on the show. The couple first met on the sets of the show in 2012 and fell in love. Although they never confirmed they were dating at that time, and had ups and downs in their relationship. Finally, they made their red carpet-debut as a couple at the Olivier Awards last year.
A month after going public with the relationship, Harington (30), opened up about the early days of the romance, which began on set while shooting in Iceland for season 2, admitting that those weeks were his favorite of the series, “Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical and because it was there that I fell in love,” he said in an interview for L’Uomo Vouge. “If you’re already attracted to someone and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love.”
Earlier this year, Harington confirmed on The Late Late Show with James Corden that he and Leslie had moved in together. Harington seemed pretty excited about his relationship, “I have moved in with my other best friend, Rose, so I’m very happy. It’s going well and she’s got all sorts of ideas for the house.”
When Nicole Kidman, another guest in the talk show asked Harington if he was planning to marry Rose Leslie, Harington replied that they would take things step by step.
Finally, the couple took out a wedding announcement in their hometown newspaper of the Times in England that wrote, “MR K C HARINGTON AND MISS R E LESLIE. 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.”
One of the closest friends of the couple told the sources, “Kit recently cooked Rose a romantic candlelight dinner and proposed to her. She burst into tears and immediately said yes!”
“Rose wants the wedding to be held in Aberdeenshire, Scotland as she lived there as a child. It will be a traditional Scottish wedding with kilts and bagpipes. They aren’t into the Hollywood scene at all,” the source says, “They both love spending their free time having friends over for dinner parties or cuddling up on the couch. They are best friends and constantly making each other laugh.”
In the end, it seems Jon Snow knew enough!
