After the news broke on Wednesday that Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are engaged, the couple have confirmed the news – but not the way you’d expect.
Neither of the Game Of Thrones stars have social media accounts, so they decided to announce their engagement the old fashioned way – a newspaper notice.
London Evening Standard staffer Elliot Wagland shared a photo of the announcement on Twitterfor people who get their news from the internet, not newspapers (because, er, it’s 2017?).
Under “forthcoming marriages”, the notice reads:
“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.”
How delightfully old fashioned, and fitting for a couple that met playing characters on a show set in medieval times.
While we do wish they’d get social media, this is nonetheless adorable.
Kit and Rose first dated in 2012 after falling for each other playing Jon Snow and Ygritte on Game Of Thrones. After a brief split they reunited, and made their first public appearance together on a red carpet in London in April 2016.
