Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has been given the honour of receiving the “Freedom of the City of London” due to her contributions in children’s literature.

The British novelist has sold more than 450 million copies of her Harry Potter books.

She said, “I am prouder than I can say to be given the freedom of the City.”

She then joked that it entitled her to “a free pint in the Leaky Cauldron and a ten Galleon voucher to spend in Diagon Alley.”
