Stephen Fry and Jim Dale are shook, because there’s been a world-class Harry Potter narrator hiding right before our very eyes…and he’s next in line to the British throne. Prince William, Kate Middleton, and Prince Harry are all noted fans of the franchise, but it seems another royal has secretly been keeping up with the titular Boy Who Lived: Prince Charles.
In an upcoming BBC One documentary celebrating the prince’s 70th birthday, Camilla Parker-Bowles revealed Charles reads the beloved novels to her grandchildren…with all the voices.
The more we think about it, the more we need to hear Prince Charles narrate an entire Harry Potter book. Eddie Redmayne, Natalie Dormer, and Andrew Lincoln have each stepped up to narrate a Harry Potter companion book, and last we checked, The Tales of Beedle the Bard has yet to find its celebrity narrator.
Reading Harry Potter has become something of a rite of passage for so many, and we love knowing that even the royals are in on it.
