'Game of Thrones' Fans Celebrate 'The Real Royal Wedding' of Kit and Rose
It was a nice day for a wildling wedding.
"Game of Thrones" costars Kit Harington (Jon Snow) and Rose Leslie (Ygritte) got married this past Saturday up in Scotland, where Rose's family has a castle. Yes, in real life she's a highborn lass. In both real and reel life, Kit and Rose fell in love.
Their "Game of Thrones" costars were in attendance for the nuptials -- including Emilia Clarke (Jon Snow's post-Ygritte love interest, Daenerys Targaryen); Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister); Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark); Maisie Williams (Arya Stark); John Bradley (Samwell Tarly); Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth); Joe Dempsie (Gendry); Richard Madden (Robb Stark); Ben Crompton (Dolorous Edd); Conleth Hill (Varys); and more.
Fans couldn't help but compare this GoT union to U.K.'s real royal weddings:

Game of Thrones cast at the wedding!!! Richard Madden's kilt makes me so happy ???????? #kitharington #roseleslie #jonsnow #kitharrington #ygritte #ygritteandjonsnow #gotseason7 #gotseason8 #got #gameofthrones #asoiaf #stark #winterfell #lannister #targaryen #sophieturner #aryastark #tyrionlannister #emiliaclarke #daenerystargaryen #fangirl #royalwedding #scotland
Haha. Thankfully it wasn't a Red or even a Purple Wedding. Maybe you could consider it a Plaid Wedding in honor of Scotland -- and Madden's kilt -- but overall it looks like it was just perfect.
If only Jon and Ygritte's story could've turned out this beautifully. We'll always imagine they just stayed in that cave...
"Game of Thrones" Season 8, the final season, will premiere on HBO in 2019. Rose Leslie's "The Good Fight" Season 2 recently finished on CBS All Access and will return for Season 3 next year.
