People reported that Harington and Leslie have taken this next step in their relationship. The news comes a year and a half after they made their red carpet debut at London's Olivier Awards.
Harington and Leslie originally met on the set of the hit HBO series, where their characters Jon Snow and Ygritte were lovers. They first started dating in 2012 while filming Season 2. Not coincidentally, Harington has said that was his favorite GoT season to shoot.
"Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love," he told Vogue Italia. "If you’re already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love."
The couple reportedly split up a year later. But Harington and Leslie continued to spend time together off set before confirming their relationship in April 2016. And even though Leslie is no longer on Game of Thrones, they have managed to make their romance work.
"I’m very proud of him," Leslie told The Telegraph last year. "There’s an understanding that comes with the job, an understanding of being busy and when you have to say 'Sorry, I’m just going to bugger off for two months to film.'"
There had been signs that Rose Leslie and Kit Harington's relationship was getting serious. They recently went on a romantic trip to Greece. Harington also confirmed to Esquire that they were moving in together.
"It's as much her relationship as it is mine and I can't speak for both of us," he added. "But yeah, we are very, very happy. So that's what I'll say about that."
Then, in June, Harington appeared on The Late Late Show with Nicole Kidman, who asked Harington when he and Leslie would get married. Harington just said he and Leslie were taking things "step by step."
