The British royal family may no longer rule over a quarter of the world's landmass and people, but their dominion is undiminished in the world of tabloids. The remaining royal bachelor, Prince Harry, is nothing if not dutiful in his commitment to giving low-quality news outlets all over the world exciting gossip to chew on. His latest exploit, however, will be nothing short of a full-employment program for paparazzi worldwide if it turns out to be true: he might be dating Emma Watson.
Do you think Prince Harry calls Emma a "mudblood" as like a cute pet name? I like to think so.

Apparently, the often-drunk (and occasionally naked or swastika-adorned) Prince "heard" that Watson had broken up with her boyfriend Matthew Janney, a British rugby player, late last year. Not wanting to be a creep, he apparently invited her on a night out with 12 of his friends, all of whom probably kept talking about what a down-to-earth dude Harry Wales (that's his "civilian name" he used in school and in the Army—middle name "prince of") is every time his highness went to the loo. As one "insider" told Australia's Women's Day magazine,
“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."
There you have it, ladies and gentlemen. Harry, Prince of Wales, learned his dating techniques from Entourage, at least according to the Turtle who gave the quote to Women's Day.
