Jon Snow And Ygritte Just Made Their Engagement Official With An Advert In London Newspaper

Kit Harington And Rose Leslie, AKA Jon Snow and Ygritte from Game of Thrones, have finally put months of rumour and speculation to rest by announcing their engagement (sorry guys and gals). But it isn’t just the news itself that has got people swooning, but also the way they announced it to the world. Because in true old-school fashion, the on-screen lovers and real-life partners revealed their plans in a small advert that they took out in the Times of London newspaper.

“Mr K.C. Harington and Miss R.E. Leslie,” reads the tiny ad. “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.”

The couple were first photographed together in 2012, but it was another four years before they publicly appeared together. They’ve tried to keep their relationship secretive but now it’s finally official! Nobody tell Daenerys though…

So a few days ago everyone started saying Jon Snow and Ygritte were engaged to be married

But nothing was certain…until this!

And why exactly is this worth a post on boredpanda? Don't get me wrong, I like these two. But your everyday celebrity news and gossip are not the reason why I visit this page.

They are a beautiful couple. Even though it's not quite Bored Panda material, I'm glad to have read of it here considering how many spoofs of GoT we've seen on this site.
