The internet was left well and truly broken last weekend with the news that the entirely delightful Emma Watson was possibly dating Britain’s most eligible bachelor Prince Harry. The idea that Watson – who has just announced she will take on the role of Disney Princess Belle in a live action Beauty and the Beast remake – might become an actual, real-life Princess was the stuff of fandom dreams.

Also, there was a portion of the internet (to wit, the Harry Potter-reading portion) who were vindicated in the knowledge that Hermione really was going to end up with Harry, after all.

But alas, those hopes and dreams had barely taken flight before they were crushed cruelly today.

Watson took to Twitter to deny the rumours early this morning. “World,” Watson said, “remember that little talk we had about not believing everything written in the media?!” This was a reference to a 2013 tweet from Watson, who responded to (false) rumours that she was going to star in Fifty Shades of Grey.

But Watson wasn’t finished yet. The actress tweeted again, sharing a clip from beloved film A Little Princess with the caption “marrying a Prince not a prerequisite for being a Princess.”

We could have told everyone it wasn’t true. Watson is cerebral, intelligent and thoughtful. Neither of those characteristics are requirements for dating Harry. Nor is she blonde.

None of which, of course, means we can’t post a completely egregious and unnecessary glamour shot of Ms Watson for no apparent reason without even pretending it has any relevance to the story. We are only human. *Sigh*
