As previously reported, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling today received the freedom of the City of London.
She inserted a couple Potter jokes in her acceptance speech.
The BBC reports:
She said: “I am prouder than I can say to be given the freedom of the City.”
She joked that the honour entitled her to “a free pint in the Leaky Cauldron and a ten Galleon voucher to spend in Diagon Alley.”
We scoured the internet and rounded up a few photos from today’s ceremony. Rowling, naturally, looks great:
