An eagle-eyed Game of Thrones fan has recorded that newly engaged Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are similar.
While fans are charmed the couple are to wed, one couldn’t assist but notice something improper after reading both their Wikipedia pages.
Taking to Twitter they wrote close screenshots of both profiles: “Cool that Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are engaged but also they are similar???”
Indeed, Kit’s new life section reads: “Through his benevolent grandmother, Lavender Cecilia Denny, Harington’s eighth-great-grandfather was Charles II of England.”
At the same time, Rose’s says: “Her mother is Candida Mary Sibyl ‘Candy’ Leslie (nee Weld) of Clan Fraser, maternal great-granddaughter of Simon Fraser, 13th Lord Lovat, and heir of Charles II of England.”
While the couple has never mentioned on their collective royal relation, they are thrilled to be attempting the knot, just a year after going public with their relationship.
After keeping their romance under wraps for four years, the couple declared their engagement in The Times.
Their ad explaining: “Mr. K.C. Harington and Miss R.E. Leslie.
“The engagement is declared between Kit, younger son of David and Deborah Harington of Worcestershire, and Rose, the middle daughter of Sebastian and Candy Leslie of Aberdeenshire.”
The couple saw on the set of the hit show when they played onscreen lovers, but they are today getting married in certain life.
Rose played Ygritte from season’s two to four and Kit still plays her character’s former lover Jon Snow.
After keeping tight-lipped for so long, Kit hasn’t held back on announcing his love for Rose, who once appeared in Downton Abbey as maid Gwen.
He has introduced: “If you’re already engaged to someone, and then they play your love concern in the show, it becomes very simple to fall in love.”
