Move over, Ron Weasley. Emma Watson’s love of gingers just got a royal upgrade: She’s moving on from a wizard to a prince!
Rumor has it the Harry Potter alum has a new man in her life, and it’s none other than our favorite hot ginger, Prince Harry!
According to Australian Woman’s Day, Watson and Harry have been meeting up for top-secret group dates after he sent her an e-mail saying he would “like to get to know her.”
“He’s smitten — and it’s more than Emma’s looks,” an insider told the mag.
It could be that Watson is whip-smart, with an Ivy League education. It could be her important work as Goodwill Ambassador for UN Women. It could be that she whipped up a powerful batch of Amortentia and slipped a little into his pint in the hope she could get him to fall into true love before the obsession wears off. Who cares? Hermione Granger could be the next Kate Middleton, y’all!
But not to put the cart before the horse and carriage, Harry is being sure to take things slowly so Watson is comfortable and doesn’t bolt in fear of living in a gilded cage. Their dates have been in groups thus far, with as many as 12 pals joining them.
“Harry didn’t want her to feel like she was put on the spot,” the insider said. “A party also shows he’s fun and not stuffy.”
Pretty sure “stuffy” is the last adjective anyone would ever use to describe this good-time-loving prince, but we give him props for wanting to make her as comfortable as possible!
And anyway, we’re quite sure the actress is perfectly comfortable around royalty — she has already met Prince William and Prince Charles.
