The First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, and her two daughters are apparently due to visit the set of the final Harry Potter films today. The Daily Mail is reporting Mrs. Obama and her daughters will pay a visit to the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and "are expected to meet with Dan Radcliffe, Emma Watson and the other stars of the movie." Long time fans of the Harry Potter series, readers will recall recently during a visit to the UK with her husband, Michelle Obama attended a special dinner and was seated next to Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling. During another event the next day, Jo treated the guests including Michelle Obama, to a reading from The Tales of Beedle the Bard. Update: Despite multiple media reports of the visit, Vanessa Davies who does press for various Harry Potter cast members and events, denied there was a visit to the set planned. Speaking to ABC news she said "There is no Obama visit, not as far as I know. I feel I would be in the loop if there was such a visit."

I hate it how celebs can go to these things. I guess it’s just me being jealous!

Great for those two girls – they’ll have a fantastic time!

Although I am over celebrities being able to have easy access to things like this!

Hey Pottercasters, when (and I do say when, not if) you find a venue in DC, you should totally invite the Obama’s. Of course it’s far fatched, but they are obviously fans, and how often do they get invited to do totally normal, purely fun sorts of things? I bet the girls would love wizard rock! LoL. Can’t wait to see y’all in the Capitol!
