Kit Harington

We were not allowed to take photos of the time Kit Harington pet Quita but here is the story behind it.

On January 18, 2020, Marvel Studios filmed a segment of their new film, “The Eternals”, in Quita’s neighbourhood, Belsize Village.

One of PenroseCare’s clients who is a child with autism spent the whole morning trying to get Kit Harington’s autograph. Our CEO Robert Stephenson-Padron personally approached
Disney Studios’ head of security on the film set to petition the child’s case. This was only possible because Quita had befriended the head of security earlier in the day.

Three hours later one of the site directors came by to tell the kid that Kit Harington was going to come to give him an autograph. He did and seeing the joy in the kid’s eyes was one of the happiest moments of my life. Kit also pet Quita but we couldn’t take photos. Good people! Very good people indeed!

Very honoured to meet fellow royalty HRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall at the 20th anniversary celebration of the London Farmers Market at Swiss Cottage. We actually both attended the Newman Canonisation at Vatican City in October 2019 but did not meet there. 👑❤️🐈⁣ | @clarencehouse @londonfarmers ⁣⁣ ⁣ “In the age when he lived, Newman stood for the life of the spirit against the forces that would debase human dignity and human destiny. In the age in which he attains sainthood, his example is needed more than ever – for the manner in which, at his best, he could advocate without accusation, could disagree without disrespect and, perhaps most of all, could see differences as places of encounter rather than exclusion.” – HRH Prince Charles⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #swisscottage #nw3 #swisscottagefarmersmarket #londonfarmersmarkets #LFM20 #london #celebration #instaphoto #johnhenrynewman #PrinceofWales #DuchessofCornwall #RoyalVisit #cat #cats #royalcat #therapycat #quitathekitty #princecharles #penrosecare #instacat⁣ ⁣ Photo by @penrosecare manager @olgaggomez90
