Potter Power At The Queen's Women Of Excellence Bash

Subscribe to Harry Potter alerts

Harry Potter author Jk Rowling was stunned by the conversation at Britain's Queen Elizabeth II's Women of Excellence lunch - as the most popular topic was her magical books.

The Scotland-based writer was among a host of prestigious guests at the exclusive Buckingham Palace bash in London yesterday (11MAR04), including LADY Heather Mills-McCARTNEY, Charlotte Church, Kate Moss and Emma Thompson.

And Rowling was delighted when the British monarch confessed to being a fan of the antics of Harry and his wizarding chums.

She says, "She was very appreciative."

But the Queen wasn't the only Potter fanatic at the luncheon - teen soprano Church also took the opportunity to declare her love of the HOGWARTS-set adventures.

She gushes, "The person I wanted to meet was JK Rowling. I love Harry Potter. I've read each of the books nine times over. I'm an obsessive fan.

"I feel so privileged to be here. I don't think I'm worthy when all I do is sing."
