If only Emma Watson could wave a magic wand.

The Harry Potter star, who recently announced a break from Brown University because balancing work and school became "impossible," knows all about stress in the limelight.

But she says it must pale in comparison to what fellow Brit Kate Middleton faces as she prepares to marry Prince William on April 29.

"Poor girl," Watson, 20, tells the Associated Press. "That must be an incredible amount of pressure. I hope she's enjoying it. Must be intense."

Middleton, 29, admitted she has jitters about saying "I do" later this month.

When asked by a local reporter if she was nervous, she said, "Yes, of course I am."
