Emma Watson Cast As Disney Princess, Dating Real Life Prince [Rumor]

The lovely Emma Watson, whose career shot straight to fame after being cast as Hermione Granger on Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone at the tender age of 10, is all grown up now. Emma Watson has recently been cast as Disney Princess Belle in the live-action reboot of Beauty and the Beast. Fans wonder if Emma Watson may become a princess for real, as rumors have Emma dating England’s Prince Harry, the youngest of Princess Diana’s sons.

Emma Watson will be playing opposite Luke Evans, known for his role as Bard the Bowman in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, and Dan Stevens of Downton Abbey fame. With Emma as Belle, Luke as Gaston, and Dan as the Beast, the new Beauty and the Beast reboot promises to be a successful endeavor.

This role is a dream come true for Emma Watson, if her Facebook page is any indication.

“I’m finally able to tell you… that I will be playing Belle in Disney’s new live-action Beauty and the Beast! It was such a big part of my growing up, it almost feels surreal that I’ll get to dance to Be Our Guest and sing Something There. My six year old self is on the ceiling – heart bursting. Time to start some singing lessons. I can’t wait for you to see it. Emma xx”

In other news, Emma Watson and Prince Harry have reportedly been seeing quite a bit of one another. News Everyday reports the couple’s friends are excited to have an alliance form between the 24-year-old Emma Watson and 30-year-old Prince Harry. An unnamed source, reportedly a friend of Emma Watson as well as Prince Harry, shares reasons why the celebrity couple would be a wonderful match.

“Emma grew up in the spotlight, she was very young when she filmed her first Harry Potter film aged just 10. Harry also grew up in the media gaze, so she understands exactly what it’s like for him as a royal and a role model… they’ve both kept relationships in the past on the QT because they like to keep their personal lives private. Given this is something they agree on, it would certainly mean any relationship would blossom.”

Whether the dating rumors are true or false, Emma Watson is destined to be a princess, even if just for a fleeting moment.
