Kit Harington to Wed Game of Thrones co-star Rose Leslie

Kit Harington is reportedly set to marry long-term lover Rose Leslie after working together on Game of Thrones for five years.

The pair met each other back in 2012 and Harington, 30, has allegedly popped the question to his co-star.

They have previously brushed off marriage reports which circulated over the summer but have been rumoured to have told their family and friends that they are prepared to marry.

“They’re yet to set a date, but told friends and family last week they’ve got engaged.”

“Kit’s known for ages he’s wanted to marry Rose but wanted them to get a house and settle down a bit first.”

“After moving in together in January he felt it was the right time to take the next step,” a source has told The Sun.

The pair already have a £1.75m mansion in East Anglia to themselves and so they now feel marriage is the next thing on the cards.

Their old-fashioned 15th century home possesses seven bedrooms in conjunction with a medieval-inspired moat which surrounds the land.

Back in June, Harington told presenter James Corden that he is “very happy” to have moved in with his “best friend”.


“It’s going well, so she’s got all sorts of ideas for the house.”

“I said to her, cause she’s moved into my house, ‘look darling, it’s important that this is our space. That is feels like our space. That you haven’t just moved into mine.”

“Move anything you want around, change anything, chuck anything out,’” Harington explained.

Harington has been one of the main characters in Game of Thrones since its debut in 2011 before Scottish actress Rose joined in 2012 to 2014. She found fame in Downton Abbey as a servant girl.

She now wants to follow Scottish customs and have a wedding ceremony “with kilts and bagpipes” in her native birthplace, according to Life & Style.

Harington talked about his relationship with Rose during the season 7 premiere for Game of Thrones, gushing about his love for her.

“I think that’s the really special thing about it is that we met on this show and here we are seven years down the line back here promoting season seven.”


“I mean it’s mad. It’s such a special thing. I’m so privileged,” the star said on the red carpet.

We are very happy for the couple and hope they have a very lovely wedding day.
