Emma Watson took to Twitter on Sunday to quell rumors that she and Prince Harry are dating, reminding the world that marrying a prince is "not a prerequisite for being a Princess." The speculation stemmed from a report last week in an Australian tabloid that the pair "are having secret dates" and "getting to know each other quite well."
The report brought despairing cries from admirers of the red-haired royal and the actor-turned-activist. The world finally heard from Watson on Sunday, when she tweeted a strong indication that the rumors were not to be believed. "WORLD ... Remember that little talk we had about not believing everything written in the media?!" she said.
She came back later in the day with a retort to tabloid fodder suggesting that Watson was angling to become the next princess, saying that "marrying a Prince (is) not a prerequisite for being a Princess." The tweet included a link to a clip from director Alfonso Cuaron's big screen adaptation of the novel "A Little Princess," which includes this famous line: "I am a princess. All girls are; even if they live in tiny old attics, even if they dress in rags, even if they aren't pretty or smart or young, they're still princesses."
Harry was last year linked romantically to Camilla Thurlow. They never confirmed a relationship publicly. In 2014, Watson dated Matthew Janney, an Oxford University student. E! News learned in December that the two had broken up. They have not commented. Watson has always been notoriously private about her personal life. Following her apparent denial tweet, Watson said on her Twitter page on Saturday, "Also..... marrying a Prince not a prerequisite for being a Princess," and linked to a video of a scene from Alfonso Cuarón's 1995 film A Little Princess.
