It looks like Harry Potter has a big royal fan – Prince Harry! The Prince was recently photographed at Kensington Palace meeting dad-of-two Dean Stott ahead of his world record attempt to complete a 14,000 mile charity bike ride, and a copy of Harry Potter Film Wizardry, which details a behind-the-scenes look at the series' filmmaking process, can clearly be seen on the coffee table.

This isn't the first time Harry has been associated with his magical namesake. In 2013 he took a trip to the Warner Bros. Studios with his brother and sister-in-law, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, where Prince William teased Harry for his love of the series, saying: "I'm over the moon just to have seen the real Batmobile and Batpod. On the other hand, Harry's just excited to see a real life talking owl... I haven't told him yet that Harry Potter is fictional, so please keep the secret for a little longer."

A love of Harry Potter seems to run in the family; the Duchess of Cornwall once revealed that Harry's dad, Prince Charles, is also a fan of the books, and reads them to her grandchildren. She told the Daily Mail: "Sometimes, when we are with my husband in Scotland, he reads them Harry Potter. 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. I always think they are going to be wriggling around in the bed, but they sit spellbound."
