They married in June 2018 in Aberdeenshire, Scotland at Rayne Church in the village of Kirkton of Rayne.

Speaking in 2017 about proposing to Rose, Kit recalled jokingly, 'I did have some plans to do it, I was going to string up some lights in some trees and do all the romantic stuff but we were in the country and we were under this beautiful night sky and had a log fire burning and red wine and I blew my load early.

'Sorry that's a really bad expression,' he added, before clarifying, 'I was meant to do it the day after with the lights. What I meant to say was, I popped my question a bit early. Not blew my load.'

The couple announced their engagement in The Times. It read, 'The engagement is announced between Kit, younger son of David and Deborah Harington of Worcestershire, and Rose, middle daughter of Sebastian and Candy Leslie of Aberdeenshire.'

Their baby news comes after the couple made a rare appearance together in London on Friday alongside their dog Whippet, with Rose managing to disguise any signs of a baby bump.
