Game of Thrones isn't the greatest show when it comes to healthy, long-lasting relationships on screen. There are so many deaths and betrayals and incestuous hookups that it's not really the most romantic series ever to hit the airwaves. Fortunately, two Game of Thrones stars are much luckier in love in real life. Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, whose characters Jon Snow and Ygritte fell in love on the series, are currently engaged to be married, and it turns out that their wedding invitations had a Game of Thrones twist to them. Jon Snow's face was on the outside of the envelope.
The two actors are understandably keeping the details of the looming nuptials as quiet as possible, but The Daily Mail reports that the invitations to their wedding aren't 100% incognito given that Kit Harington appears in all his gloomy Jon Snow glory on the envelope. That said, the invitations weren't shipped out in specially printed Jon Snow stationary. No, Kit Harington and Rose Leslie put the Game of Thrones stamp on their wedding invitations with an actual Game of Thrones stamp.
The Royal Mail released a series of limited edition stamps earlier this year bearing the face of a number of Game of Thrones characters, included Daenerys Targaryen, Jaime Lannister, Arya Stark, Cersei Lannister, Tyrion Lannister, Olenna Tyrell, Ned Stark, Tywin Lannister, Sansa Stark, and yes, Jon Snow. (Also printed were stamps with White Walkers, giants, dragons, direwolves, and the Iron Throne.) People wouldn't necessarily know that an envelope is from Kit Harington and Rose Leslie just because a Jon Snow stamp was on the front. Such an envelope could have been sent from any Game of Thrones fan in the U.K.! I'm assuming Harington and Leslie didn't include their names and address on a return address label. Check out the stamps for yourself!
The wedding is apparently scheduled for the not-too-distant future, but there probably aren't too many people other than those who received the Jon Snow-stamped invitations who know when the ceremony will take place. Of course, Kit Harington and Rose Leslie reportedly invited 200 people to their wedding; if any details due leak, it may simply be because of the sheer number of guests. Surely some people on the guest list have looser lips than others!
We'll have to wait and see if any details leak about any further Game of Thrones connections in the wedding. Kit Harington and Rose Leslie probably won't walk down the aisle in their costumes from the series, but members of the Game of Thrones cast and crew could conceivably be present. Only time will tell.
