In conversation with the Bishop of Birmingham (the Rt. Rev John Sentamu) yesterday, the Queen had herself a chuckle when she named Albus Dumbledore as the headmaster of Hogwarts, the Daily Telegraph reported today. The bishop asked the question during his sermon the Queen was attending the service (her country home is near Sandringham).

:”The Queen was laughing because she knew the answer and none of the children did,” said the bishop. “She said: ‘Fancy the children not knowing about Harry Potter – I knew.’
