WORLD ♥ Remember that little talk we had about not believing everything written in the media?!- Emma Watson (@EmWatson) February 22, 2015
She then reminded us of one pretty awesome thing, though: She doesn't need to marry Prince Harry to be a Princess. (And neither do we!)
Oh well, we're still hopeful. And you never know -- maybe this will be the spark for Emma and Harry. "LOL Remember that time everyone thought we were dating?!" ...bonding ensues/they fall in love. Done.
also..... marrying a Prince not a prerequisite for being a Princess. https://t.co/vjodTAgEcC - Courtesy of Alfonso Cuaron.- Emma Watson (@EmWatson) February 22, 2015
In what's possibly the most exciting story to grace our office today, Emma Watson is reportedly -- according to several tabloids (we know, we know) -- linked to Britain's beloved Spare to the Throne! Woman's Day Australia is reporting that the pair have been going on "secret dates" and have really quite hit it off.
Apparently as soon as Harry heard that Emma had split from her boyfriend last year, he got in touch with some mutual friends to try to spend some time with the Harry Potter star. They arranged a party with several other friends so that Harry could get to know her. "Harry didn't want her to feel like she was put on the spot," an insider revealed to Woman's Day. "A party also shows he's fun and not stuffy." Right, because it's definitely a common misconception that Prince Harry is stuffy. (Not.)
We already know that Emma has met Prince William during an event he hosted at Kensington Palace, so she's basically already a member of the family. Also, she's about to become a Princess for Disney's Beauty and the Beast. Practice, y'know?
Okay we're getting ahead of ourselves. Would be a pretty great match, though, don't you think? Vote below, and click through above to see the time Watson rubbed shoulders with Harry's brother, Prince William!
