We all remember Jon and Ygritte's love story for Game of Thrones. Even people who have never seen the show know the line: "You don't know anything, Jon Snow." And as if the story couldn't get any better, Jon and Ygritte (aka Kit Harington and Rose Leslie) came together shortly after their characters appeared in real life. The couple even got married in an idyllic ceremony in Scotland in 2018, where Leslie's father apparently owns a castle.
Here's everything we know about the couple's notoriously private relationship, with the latest update first.
January 2020
The rarely seen couple appears on The Golden Globes and looks in love on the red carpet as always. Harington was nominated for Best Actor for his role as Jon Snow in the last season of Game of Thrones. Incidentally, this was the only nomination of the series at the Golden Globes 2020. Ouch.
It was also the first time that the couple had been photographed together since Harington left a London-based treatment center prior to the GOT finale on HBO in June 2019. His publicist said that he used the break in his schedule "as an opportunity to spend" some time at a wellness retreat to work on some personal issues. "

It's pretty funny sorry Rose.

Kit tells The Guardian why he and Rose are not taking photos with fans, and describes the polite and rehearsed rejection that he gives when asked, "But you only have to," he defends. "Otherwise you feel like a mannequin. Especially me and Rose, we never take a picture together. Because then our relationship feels like ... puppets ... as if we were a walking show."
Then he explained the couple's decision not to talk about each other in interviews: "I just don't know - and I won't say much about it now - but I don't believe in talking about the relationship in the press because of it. .. I am firmly convinced that it is her and my relationship and everything I say here she may not want me to say so I just do not say it. I really think it is our private life . "
June 2018
Rose and Kit tied the knot in an idyllic, traditional ceremony on June 23 at the Kirkton of Rayne Church in Aberdeenshire, attended by the who's who of Westeros and the seven kingdoms ... aka the cast of Game of Thrones.

November 2018
A Russian model named Olga Vlaslova tweeted what she called a Harington nude photo and told a Russian newspaper that she and Harington met in Luxembourg and slept with Leslie several times before and after he married.
A Harington representative quickly denied the story and said, "The allegations in this story are completely wrong," says his representative. "[Harington] has never been to Luxembourg and has never met Olga Vlasova."
The fact that he has never been to Luxembourg makes this pretty conclusive, doesn't it?
