It's well-known that Prince Harry, Prince William, and Duchess Kate are fans of Harry Potter. Case in point: The trio's wand-wielding appearance at the Warner Brothers Studios in London back in 2013.


But today it was revealed that Prince Charles is also a fan of J.K. Rowling's fantasy series and that he enjoys reading the books to his wife Camilla's grandchildren. "Sometimes, when we are with my husband in Scotland, he reads them Harry Potter," the Duchess of Cornwall told the Daily Mail.

"And he does all the voices because he is a brilliant mimic. I’m not very good. I try to do the voices, but acting isn’t my forte. But he sits down and they all sit with him," she said.

"I always think they are going to be wriggling around in the bed, but they sit spellbound."

At just three years old (and turning four next week!), Prince George is probably too young to enjoy the wizarding world just yet.
