Singer Lewis Capaldi and Harry Potter star Emma Watson were photographed laughing together during the women’s singles final at Wimbledon, and fans loved it.
The unlikely duo sat together in the Royal Box on day 13 of the tournament on Saturday (July 15), which was attended by stars from Maggie Smith to Nick Jonas.
In photos from the event, Capaldi, 26, and Watson, 33, can be seen stitching stitches and talking animatedly to each other.
“This is a WACK ass couple but I won’t lie that I devoured it,” one delighted fan tweeted.
“Lewis Capaldi and Emma Watson are a random cross, but an interesting one nonetheless,” another posted.
“Emma Watson sat next to Lewis Capaldi. Lovely things,” wrote a third.
“Emma Watson and Lewis Capaldi I can’t,” said the fourth.
Pointing out how odd that the Minister for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Therese Coffey, was sitting right behind the celebrity duo, another tweeted: “Wake up, Therese Coffey is at the Wimbledon final against Lewis Capaldi and Emma Watson.”
Marketa Vondrousova beat Ons Jabeur in consecutive sets to reach the Wimbledon women’s singles final.
Jabeur, in tears after the match, described it as “the most painful loss of my career”.
Vondrousova’s victory made her the first women’s singles champion Wimbledon has ever seen.
Tomorrow (July 16), Carlos Alcaraz will enter his first Wimbledon final where he will try to prevent Novak Djokovic from winning his fifth consecutive title.
Last weekend, actor Daniel Kaluuya, pop star Ellie Goulding, TV presenter Richard Osman and director Richard Curtis all appeared in The Royal Box, while Wednesday (July 12) his daughter Princess Margaret’s only Lady Sarah Chatto, actress and writer Stephen Fry and ballet dancer Dame Darcey Bussell attended.
Capaldi last month announced a halt to the tour “for the foreseeable future” after he cut his Glastonbury set short due to Tourette’s syndrome.
Singer-songwriter “Someone You’ve Fallen In Love With” performed on the festival’s Pyramid Stage on June 24.
During his performance, he told the crowd that he was beginning to lose his voice and it was found that he experienced a series of tics due to Tourette’s syndrome.
Capaldi was diagnosed with Tourette’s disease in 2022. His Netflix documentary Lewis Capaldi: How am I feeling now, released in April, exploring his diagnosis and the changes in his life since finding out he had the disease.
