Though the pair have yet to be photographed together in public, the magazine Woman's Day set the Internet ablaze this week after claiming that Harry and Emma are secretly dating.

According to the Daily Mail on Saturday the report remains unconfirmed. The article's unnamed source for the article claimed that Harry is "smitten" with the actress, who rose to fame playing Hermione Granger in the J.K. Rowling-inspired Harry Potter films. The actress then went on to star  other hits, including This Is The End and The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.

Despite the obvious "Harry and Hermione" jokes, the public has been scouring for clues as to whether or not the rumor is true. Harry broke up with former girlfriend Cressida Bonas in April of 2014, while Emma ended things with her old boyfriend Matthew Janney in December.

Emma met Harry's brother, Prince William, during a dinner event for the Royal Marsden in 2014. Harry was not in attendance at the event, but Woman's Day alleges that Harry and Emma recently met at a private party and have been secretly getting together ever since.

A representative for the actress has yet to comment on the rumor, though a spokeswoman for Clarence House released a vague statement on behalf of the royal family.

"Prince Harry's private life is private," read the statement. "We would not confirm or deny that."
