Kit Harington has been lying for months. It’s almost been a full year of lies, actually. Ever since the Season 5 finale of Game of Thrones, Kit has repeatedly and unequivocally lied about Jon Snow, Game of Thrones and whether he’s filmed anything for Season 6. Considering we have the receipts that prove that Kit did in fact film some significant stuff for Season 6, Kit has continued to lie, lie, lie. Anyway, back in the summer of 2015, Kit had already begun his Tour of Lies. He was invited to sit in the Royal Box at Wimbledon, and it happened to be the day that the Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall was in attendance. And guess what? Camilla asked Kit if Jon Snow is really dead. And Kit lied to the duchess.
Game of Thrones conspiracy theories surrounding the fate of Jon Snow have reached such an extent that Kit Harington even found himself being harangued by a member of the royal family. Harington described how the obsession with his character’s demise was highlighted when the Duchess of Cornwall couldn’t help but drill him for information during a visit to Wimbledon.
His presence there sparked a flurry of reports speculating whether Jon Snow was still alive simply due to the fact his hair was the same length as his character’s in the show after he was supposed to have departed from it. He told Jonathan Ross: “Me and my brother got invited to Wimbledon as you do and a Royal was hosting, we didn’t know which Royal it was and it was the Duchess of Cornwall, and she was hosting it and we got sat with her, me and my brother. She leant over the table and said, “Are you dead?” No word of a lie.”
Harington is continuing to emphatically insist Jon Snow is dead, not that anyone is paying any attention. However, he did admit his character would be making an appearance in the new series, albeit as a corpse.
“I won’t tell you how many episodes I’m lying dead but it’s enough that I was out there for quite a while. It’s going to be so satisfying when you see it and you realise that I was telling the truth the whole time. There’s a guy at my Sainsburys I go to, I love this man. He’s very dear to my heart. He sees me come in and he goes straight to the till and he bars everyone else, he flicks them across until I get there and he goes ‘You ain’t dead is it?’ And I’m like ‘I am dead.’ And he goes, ‘Nah, you ain’t dead, I know’ and I’m like, ‘How do you know? I’m dead.’ And he goes, ‘You’d be crying if you were dead’ and this happens everytime I go in. I think he thinks I’d be weeping in the street for the rest of my life that I’m not in Game of Thrones anymore.”

No, seriously: Kit would be crying if he was really killed off. So would all of the fans. And I guess it’s surprising to learn that Camilla is a fan? We didn’t know that. We knew that Kate and William were Downton Abbey fans, and we knew that Camilla liked some dark Swedish murder show. But we didn’t know that Camilla is a Throner. That makes me like Camilla more, honestly. I wonder if she makes Charles watch it. Probably not. She’s probably taping it and watching it when he’s not around. Is she House Lannister or House Stark?
