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."

Yeah, this one would have been easy for them to check up on to see if it was a rumor or not.

It’s ridiculous that they get to do that just because they’re celebrities.

There are no words to describe my anger right now.

I think I should be able to go along with them since my tax dollars are helping to pay for their flight, hotel, etc. I won’t be much trouble, I swear.

I think it’s great that they are going to get to visit. Since Michelle Obama met JKR at the dinner, it’s too bad they can’t work in a visit with her as well. The girls would love it.

This story just makes me smile.
