The Internet has been hit by a new wave of speculation today, with reports suggesting that Emma Watson and Prince Harry are dating.
Yes, actual Harry Potter actress Emma, and actual royalty, heir-to-the-throne Harry.
This is like that time Harry Styles was romantically linked to President Obama, apart from it’s actually rather plausible.
According to australian publication Woman’s Day, Hazza and Em have always been incredibly chummy, and when the Prince heard that she had split from rugby player Matthew Janney at the end of last year, he called on their mutual pals to help him woo the actress.
In fact, the source who has been doing all of the gossiping even seemed to know that Harry sent the 24-year-old a ‘short email’ saying that he would ‘like to get to know her’ and asked her out.
Unfortunately they couldn’t clarify whether or not the wink emoji was used.
Obviously in an attempt to downplay the entire thing and act totally cool, the pair were apparently joined on their date by a whopping twelve other friends to make Emma feel more comfortable.
The source dished: “Harry didn’t want her to feel like she was put on the spot.
“A party also shows he’s fun and not stuffy.
“He’s smitten – and it’s more than Emma’s looks.”
Of course it’s more than Emma’s look – she’s actual Hermione Granger, how could anybody not be a little bit in love with her?
It’s not just us who are struggling to get our head around the goss, with Twitter going into an actual meltdown as news of their rumoured date hit the headlines:
