Prince Harry, Emma Watson Dating? Actress And Royal Go On ‘Secret Group Dates’

Prince Harry and Emma Watson might be dating, and the rumors have taken over the internet this week. According to Yahoo! News, the British royal and the Harry Potter actress have supposedly been on a few “secret” group dates, getting to know each other in a casual setting. Reports claim that Harry wanted to get to know Emma, so there was an email exchange suggesting that they do just that. Evidently, the two went to a party together, and they really hit it off.

“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,” said a source.

Prince Harry and Emma Watson have both been single for a few months, and sources say this is a great time for them to get into a relationship with each other. According to Hollywood Life, the connection that Harry has with Emma is “unlike anything he’s ever experienced.” The site seems to think that Emma would fit into royal life perfectly — and perhaps she would. Emma has already met Harry’s brother, William, and his dad, Charles (long before the dating rumors surfaced), and sources say that she fit right in.

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Harry has had quite the crush on Emma for years. However, the timing of this story is a little hard to believe. You see, Emma was recently cast as Belle in Disney’s live action film Beauty and the Beast. That means that she is going to become a princess… of the fairytale sort, which suggests that this rumor was way too easy for the tabloids to resist. Coincidence? Maybe.

Of course, everyone would love to see Prince Harry and Emma Watson get married and live happily ever after… because they really seem like they would be perfect together (assuming Harry can give up his partying ways). One could only imagine how close Emma would get to Kate Middleton — and what a great aunt she would make to Kate and William’s children… but that is really getting way too far ahead of the game, isn’t it? This news, after all, is still just a rumor at this point.

Do you think that Harry and Emma would make a good couple? Do you think that there could be any truth to these rumors?
