"Mr K.C. Harington and Miss R.E. Leslie.

"The engagement is announced between Kit, younger son of David and Deborah Harington of Worcesterhire, and Rose, middle daughter of Sebastian and Candy Leslie of Aberdeenshire."

But apart from spotting their announcement in the Times, fans have also hunted down other facts on the internet and have discovered that Kit and Rose and distantly related.

One Twitter user took to the site to share the findings, saying, "Cool that Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are engaged but also they are related???”


Kit’s wiki-page reads, "Through his paternal grandmother, Lavender Cecilia Denny, Harington's eighth-great-grandfather was Charles II of England.”

While Rose’s reads, "Her mother is Candida Mary Sibyl "Candy" Leslie (née Weld) of Clan Fraser, maternal great-granddaughter of Simon Fraser, 13th Lord Lovat, and descendant of Charles II of England."
