When England’s most eligible bachelor heard that the “Harry Potter” star had split up with Oxford University rugby player Matthew Janney last year he sent her an email inviting her out, telling her he’d like to get to know her.
The two went out on a big group date and hit it off, insiders say.
“He’s smitten – and it’s more than Emma’s looks,” says one source.
Just the mere thought of the two lovely people being a couple has royal watchers jumping for joy.
“Watson and Harry might just be the best celebrity pairing since, well, ever,” opined Rachel Simon at Bustle.com on Friday.
“Sure, it’s just a rumor, and yeah, there’s a big chance the extremely private Watson would never go for someone so famous, but still: can you imagine?!
“The combination of their British accents, their bonding over unusual upbringings, the drop-dead gorgeous dress she’ll wear to the royal wedding — sorry, am I getting ahead of myself?
“It’s just that this is the greatest rumor of all time, and unless someone proves that it’s false, I’m going to enjoy all the possibilities their romance has to offer.”
