Kit Harington Bends the Knee, Proposes to Rose Leslie!

by at .

To conclude Game of Thrones Season 7, Jon Snow bended the knee and pledged his loyalty to Daenerys Targaryen.

He then made sweet, sweet love to her on a boat.

Now, in a prime example of life imitating art, the actor who portrays Jon Snow on this HBO epic has gotten down on one knee and proposed marriage to Rose Leslie!

And she said yes!

So we can only presume some sweet lovemaking commenced following this exciting development as well.

(We can also presume that Leslie is NOT Kit Harington's aunt, making their relationship far less sordid and controversial than the fictional one between Jon Snow and the Mother of Dragons.)

Harington and Leslie met on the set of Game of Thrones.

Leslie's character of Ygritte was a Wildling who took Jon Snow's virginity inside a cave and who was later killed off during a battle at The Wall on Season 4.

The stars themselves, meanwhile, have been dating for about five years now.

Speculation over their engaged status started in earnest over the summer, with The Sun now reporting that Harington and Leslie have been telling friends and loved ones that they are, indeed, betrothed.

Details on the proposal aren't clear at this time, however.

"They're yet to set a date, but told friends and family last week that they've got engaged," an insider tells this British newspaper, adding of the actor:

"Kit's known for ages he's wanted to marry Rose but he wanted them to get a house and settle down a bit first."

The couple recently moved in to a mansion in East Anglia, setting up this next logical move in their relationship.

"He felt it was the right time to take the next step," a source says of Harington.

The handsome star, of course, has anchored Game of Thrones in the vital role of Jon Snow ever since the drama premiered on HBO.

Leslie, meanwhile, also appeared on numerous episodes of Downton Abbey and is now a series regular on The Good Fight.

Seeing as the pair shot down engagement rumors reported by Life & Style a few months ago, and yet have NOT denied this new round of chatter, we're going to go ahead and assume it's accurate.

In which case: Congratulations to Harington and Leslie!

Jon Snow may know nothing...

... but the man who brings him to life sure knows how to lock down a beautiful woman!
