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.

I'm obsessed with the fact that @SophieT and @Maisie_Williams not only matched outfits for Kit Harington & Rose Leslie's wedding but also decided to dress like they were going anywhere but a wedding pic.twitter.com/DcoWCcpyx1
