25 Times Kit Harington Made You Wish You Were Rose Leslie In 2017

A lot of feelings are coming.

1. Rose Leslie and Kit Harington have always been the cutest, whether on screen...


2. Or off screen. Just look at them canoodling on a night out in London, it's too much to handle.

3. It was only last year that Kit revealed he fell in love with his co-star while filming Game of Thrones a few years ago.


4. But this year they have taken it all up to a whole new level.

8. And just look at Kit making sure he was always by her side at the GoT season 7 premiere back in July.

Cuteness overload.

9. They shared private jokes.

10. And never parted sides. Kit proved he's a great arm rest, too.

11. In fact, every time they made a public appearance in 2017 they've been the definition of #goals.

12. What a well suited pair.

16. They clearly had the time of their lives.

No, you're jealous.

17. But we will always remember 2017 as the year THIS happened. The cutest (and most British) engagement announcement possible.

18. Then shortly afterwards Kit revealed how he actually proposed to Rose. And the way he told the story was hilarious and completely adorable in equal measure.


Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show, Kit revealed: "We did a little announcement in The Times…"

But then he told the story of how he was planning to propose, and ended up making a hilarious innuendo when explaining how his intentions went slightly wrong: "I did have some plans to do it, I was going to string up some lights in some trees and do all the romantic stuff but we were in the country and we were under this beautiful night sky and had a log fire burning and red wine and I blew my load early. Sorry that’s a really bad expression!"

He laughed at his mistake, before continuing: "I was meant to do it the day after with the lights. What I meant to say was, I popped my question a bit early. Not blew my load."

19. And Rose was spotted out and about showing off her ring, and my word Kit did NOT mess around.

20. Kit even revealed he's totally prepared to halt GoT filming for the wedding.

Harington also told Jonathan Ross: "I rang [George R.R. Martin] up and I said, ‘I’m getting married and it’s your fault actually’... I think for the final season he is so stressed that he’s reached that peaceful level. I was like, ‘You need to factor in a Game of Thrones wedding by the way.’ They [the cast] have all got to be there so the whole thing has got to shut down."

He means business.

21. But there was one thing this year that made us think Rose wasn't quite so lucky – when Kit revealed an insane April Fools' prank he once played on her which went awry.

Basically, he didn't realise that she wasn't used to them but he'd grown up playing pranks on the day every year. So he put something in their fridge and filmed her opening it.

22. This was what was inside... and her reaction.

Kit said: "She pretty much told me that if I did it ever again that would be it, and I think that's marriage included."

23. But Rose gives as good as she gets and this year we also learned how she got her own back by making him go to a costume party dressed as Jon Snow.

As Kit told it, the theme of the party was "bad taste," so Rose suggested a Jon Snow costume. "She pulled out a Jon Snow costume, and Rose just whispered in my ear, 'I won't love you if you don't wear it,'" Harington told Heat magazine. "It was really embarrassing," he continued. "The people bringing around canapes were looking at me, thinking, 'You're sad man! You've come to a party dressed as your character.' They couldn't be better suited tbqh.

24. So yeah, 2017 ~may~ have been a lot about this Kit scene.


25. But we think this is the best thing to happen in 2017.
