Twitter is Losing Its Mind Over the Game of Thrones Wedding of Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie

It's a Westerosi royal wedding!

Traditionally, the weddings on Game of Thrones have been bloody affairs filled with stabbings, poisonings, and betrayal. Thankfully that wasn’t the case at the wedding of Kit Harington and Rose Leslie in Aberdeenshire, Scotland this morning. The couple met filming the series, where their characters Ygritte and Jon Snow fell in love beyond the wall. The couple have been together ever since.

The wedding is drawing many comparisons to the recent royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Both weddings feature good-looking Brits, famous actors, and nobility (Rose Leslie is legit a member of a Scottish noble family). The wedding reception was even held in the 12th century Wardhill Castle, which belongs to Leslie’s family.

This wedding is the perfect Venn diagram of celebrity, pomp, and nerdery that’s more than enough to cause a Twitter meltdown. People all over the world are losing their damn minds over this wedding.

People we’re fawning over the fashions and the men in kilts.

And everyone is just really freakin’ excited.

Congrats to the happy couple, and may Jon Snow finally know something now.

Chelsea was born and raised in New Orleans, which explains her affinity for cheesy grits and Britney Spears. An pop culture journalist since 2012, her work has appeared on Autostraddle, AfterEllen, and more. Her beats include queer popular culture, film, television, republican clownery, and the unwavering belief that 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' is the greatest movie ever made. She currently resides in sunny Los Angeles, with her husband, 2 sons, and one poorly behaved rescue dog. She is a former roller derby girl and a black belt in Judo, so she is not to be trifled with. She loves the word “Jewess” and wishes more people used it to describe her.
