So It Turns Out Kit Harrington And His New Fiancée Rose Leslie Are Distantly Related

Keep it in the family.

Kit Harington and Rose Leslie met while filming season two of Game of Thrones, and given the nature of the HBO series, it wasn’t long before their characters got down and dirty.

The passion portrayed on screen between Jon Snow and Ygritte-The-Wildling wasn’t exactly ‘acted’ though, as the pair quickly hit it off and started to date in real life. Now, they’re engaged (n’aww!) but they’re also – wait for it – distantly related. Talk about life imitating art.

It was a fan of the pair who discovered their family history while reading through each of their Wikipedia pages and found that both Kit and Rose are descendants of King Charles II.

But Charles the II lived from 1630 to 1685, so we’re fairly sure they’re grand to do the business…
