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."

Nice to have privileges – if it was me I’d take advantage of them too! Wonder who will be more nervous? The girls meeting them or the Trio meeting the “first family?”

Cool! I know the girls probably think this is the best part of the trip :) Try not to be jealous y’all…the kids and their parents are real fans…I loved how President Obama gushed to Jo about how much he loved the series! It would be very cool to have them on a Pottercast!

I just think it’s neat that the US has a President who has read the HP books…

They are so lucky! And I recall that the now-President took the time to read all seven HP books to his daughters at bedtime (bet that took a long time!), so they really are genuine fans. Hey Leaky – why not get in touch with their Press Secretary and ask the girls to post their impresseions of the visit here??
