Update, 2/22: Alas, it is as we suspected—this charming little rumor seems to be nothing more than that. Why get our hopes up, world?! Why?!?
Anyway, Emma Watson took to Twitter today to break our hearts set the record straight, so we guess we have to stop fantasizing about a Harry/Hermione union.
WORLD ♥ Remember that little talk we had about not believing everything written in the media?!February 22, 2015
Original post, 2/20: She's smart, she's beautiful, and now, she may have found her match. Emma Watson has allegedly nabbed herself a literal prince charming in the form of Prince Harry.
According to Woman's Day Australia (opens in new tab) (who can "exclusively reveal" the news), Harry heard about Watson's split from British rugby player Matthew Janney and got some mutual friends to help him woo her. He invited her to a small party among friends, because ugh, dates are just so formal.
"Harry didn't want her to feel like she was put on the spot," explained the insider. "A party also shows he's fun and not stuffy." Now, according to the same insider, the prince is "smitten."
On the one hand, this is the best news ever. On the other hand, it's not really news 'til it's actually news, and this sounds preeeetty far-fetched to us. But PLEASE LET IT BE TRUE.
