The Times is reporting that J.K. Rowling has written a piece that will appear in a new book celebrating the 60th birthday of Prince Charles. In Hugo Rifkind’s column, he says the Harry Potter author has contributed writing that will appear “in The Birthday Book, to be published by The Prince’s Foundation for Children & the Arts” for the Prince of Wales birthday in November. Authors Anthony Horowitz and Philip Pullman are also said to have contributed to this book.

Readers will recall back in February, Prince Charles remarked to actress Julie Walters (Molly Weasley) at her CBE award ceremony how much he enjoyed the Harry Potter films. J.K. Rowling has also met with the Queen several times previously, and the Trio of Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) appeared in a special Harry Potter video skit that was part of a celebration for Queen Elizabeth in June of 2006 (video of that available here in our galleries). We are trying to find out more about this book, and will update with more when we can.
