Is Emma Watson and Robert Pattinson really an item? While they’ve been notoriously private about their relationship since they announced their engagement in 2015, there are signs that point to them being more than just friends.
Here we’ll explore whether Emma and Rob have crossed the line from friends to something more, and if so, when they might end up getting married.
Signs That They’re More Than Friends
Despite being one of the most famous couples in the world, Emma and Rob have kept a surprisingly low profile even after tying the knot in June 2019. It’s no secret that they’re very private individuals who value their independence and privacy, and have never revealed details of their personal lives, even within their close circle of family and friends.
Certainly, we can point to a number of incidents that seem to suggest a romantic relationship between the Friends For Now star and the Rainbows and Unicorns director. From the odd pair of engagement rings to them spending a long holiday together, it’s clear that they’re more than just good friends.
The Rainstorms And Stormy Seas Ring
The latest in a long line of peculiar weather phenomena was the sudden and heavy downpour that hit the United Kingdom on 24 March 2020. The country was under a month of lockdown, with numerous events, including football matches, cancelled. What was unusual about this storm was that it didn’t clear up after a while; instead, it hung around for several days, resulting in flooding and damage to property. Naturally, speculation began to swirl about whether or not this sudden weather event was caused by climate change.
Just a day after the UK was hit by this “perfect” storm, we got our first look at the engagement ring that Emma and Rob (then known as Ross) swapped before the pandemic. The ring is actually a copy of the one that Emma’s parents, Bill and Phyllis, gave her on her 16th birthday. The original is a 16 karat gold band with a single brilliant-cut diamond flanked by smaller diamonds. During the lockdown, Bill and Phyllis made the decision to share their most precious gift with the public, and after much consideration, they decided to forgo their own privacy and let Emma share this moment with her fans.
The fact that Emma chose to wear this particular ring at this particular time is a clear indication that she sees this as more than just a “friendly” gesture. When the UK was plunged into its longest-ever peacetime lockdown, we were treated to a glimpse of a very happy couple.
The Holiday To Remember
Another incident that happened during the pandemic was the private holiday that Emma and Rob took to Bali. Dubbed “D-Day” by their friends and family, this was the first holiday that the couple had taken since they got engaged. Having been shut away from the world for so long, this was the perfect opportunity to get some long overdue quality time. While some reports suggest that the pair were only there for a few days, others claim that they were away for a month.
In any case, there was no denying that the gorgeous Bali scenery and idyllic atmosphere helped to bring an end to the pandemic. As the world began to slowly reopen, the question on everyone’s lips was: Will Emma and Rob get married?
Public And Private Events
In addition to flooding and tornadoes, the UK was also hit by an outbreak of the new coronavirus in March 2020. While this was a cause for concern for everyone, especially as it began to spread to large numbers of people, it did offer some advantages. One of the biggest was that it allowed the couple to hold their wedding ceremony in private. This was a real perk for guests who had been following their relationship since it began and were curious as to what the big event would look like. There were no intrusive photographers in sight, just small groups of close friends and family who were willing to take a step back while the couple shared this moment with each other.
More Than A Meeting Place
If you go back several years in Emma and Rob’s relationship, you’ll see a different side to them. Back then, they were simply friends who met at a photoshoot. Little did they know that this was merely a stepping stone on their way to a more intimate relationship.
Over the years, their friendship grew, and before you knew it, they were inviting each other for lunch and tagging each other in memes on social media. While they keep a relatively low profile today, this was a very different story back in 2015. At the time, their relationship was front and center, with fans hunting down every detail about their courtship. Even their wedding day was treated as a major event, with thousands lined up to watch the ceremony on television.
Since then, all of this has remained fairly private, with only close friends and family knowing the truth about their personal lives. In recent years, this has been reflected in their choice of venue for engagements, weddings, and other high profile events. The couple have always preferred to keep these moments personal and private, and it’s great to see that this trend continues even after all these years.
A Wedding To Remember
Despite all of this, it seems that the world will officially get to witness the start of Emma and Rob’s married life on 24 June 2020. The couple’s engagement and wedding were live-streamed on social media, and the general public were given a front-row seat as this historic event unfolded.
Wedding bells were first heard in the United Kingdom when the couple exchanged vows during a ceremony at London’s St. James’ Church. After a few hours of dancing and celebrating, the newlyweds made their exit as guests filed out of the church, looking rather dazed and confused. Naturally, Emma and Rob were overwhelmed by all the attention, and it’s clear that they’re still struggling to come to terms with the idea of spending the rest of their lives together. As one would expect, they both wanted to keep this moment private, and so far, they’ve managed to keep everyone guessing about their relationship.
It’s interesting to note how much things have changed in just a few years. When they first began, Emma and Rob were simply friends who happened to be paired under the same roof. Now, it seems that they’re ready to make a lifelong commitment to each other and are looking forward to sharing their story with the world.
