We might know Sophie Turner as Game of Thrones’ ‘Queen Of The North’, but the newly separated British actor has her arm around a new man, who is part of the real world nobility.
Turner was recently pictured kissing British aristocrat Peregrine Pearson on the streets of Paris. She was there to present the Rugby World Cup Trophy as a Louis Vuitton ambassador (the trophy travels in a Louis Vuitton case). According to E! online, the pair were also seen at the match between New Zealand and South Africa and later at Gare Du Nord.
Then, she was again spotted with Pearson, this time in London, holding hands on a crisp winter walk and even sharing yet another smooch while they waited for a car to pick them up. Peep the photos here.
The romance has continued to progress, with the pair sharing holiday snaps on a ski trip with the caption, “Jägerbomb anyone?” More on that later.
In mid February, the pair attended their first official event together, Stanley Zhu’s Year of Dragon Celebration at Dixie Queen in London. Turner was resplendent in a rouched grey two-piece set, with an off-the shoulder silhouette reminiscent of Princess Diana’s ‘revenge dress’.
But who is Peregrine Pearson? And how did he manage to catch the attention of Turner amidst her public split from estranged husband Joe Jonas?
