The Game of Thrones stars started their romantic journey in Iceland on the sets of their popular show. The two were romantically involved in the show as well, which was the start of their real-life fairy love tale that ended them getting hitched in Scotland on 23rd June last year. The wedding was a replica of the Game of Thrones set as a lot of stars from Game of Thrones attended the gorgeous wedding.
The couple made their first debut on the red carpet together in 2016, keeping their relationship private for about four years since they were seen kissing and holding hands in London back in 2012.
Kit Harington revealed how he fell for Leslie in an interview with Vogue the same year. “I fell in love in Iceland. I fell in love with my co-star”, Harington said. He expressed his love for Iceland because of its beauty and because that is where he fell for her and since he was already attracted to her, the romantic tie between their characters made it easier to fall deeply in love. He also revealed the following year (2017) that the two of them are now living together in New York and are very happy in the relationship. And even after her character death in season four, Jon aka Kit made it very clear in an interview that Ygritte aka Rose was the only woman for Jon Snow.
Soon afterward, they announced their engagement in the Times of London. But it wasn’t all smooth sailing for the couple till now.
Back in 2013, just after their rumored relationship, they were said to have broken up but again seemed to get back together in 2014 when they attended the Comic-Con festival in San Diego.
Kit had also checked in a wellness rehab recently after the show Game of Thrones ended while Rose was staying low. However, earlier this month Harington was seen out with wife Rose on the streets of London thereby concluding that he is better now, after checking in on personal issues and the couple is currently enjoying summer together.
Kit had also played a horrifying prank on his wife on April Fools day last year, after putting his severed head from the sets of Game of Thrones inside their refrigerator. “She pretty much told me that if I ever did it again, that would be it, and I think that’s marriage included,” Harington said in an interview on The Jonathan Ross Show, revealing the fun side of their relationship.
And after all these years, the couple always proves us that true love indeed lasts through everything.
