Harry Potter star Emma Watson feels sorry for princess-to-be Kate Middleton

Emma Watson feels sympathetic towards Kate Middleton ahead of her Royal Wedding with Prince William on 29 April.

Billions are expected to tune into the event, and the Harry Potter actress reckons being in the spotlight must be scary for the princess-to-be.

‘Poor girl. That must be an incredible amount of pressure,’ Emma, 21, tells the Associated Press.

‘I hope she’s enjoying it. Must be intense.’

Kate, 29, and Wills, 28, made their last official engagement together before they marry on Monday and the brunette beauty admitted she was worried about her big day.

‘I asked [Kate] if she was nervous about her wedding,’ says Asda worker Amanda Wood, who was in the Lancashire crowd.

‘And she said: “Yes of course I am.” Then I told her she’s beautiful.’
