The 59-year-old royal confessed he was a fan of the magical movies when he presented actress Julie Walters with her Commander of the British Empire order (CBE) at Buckingham Palace yesterday (28.02.08).

Walters – who plays Ron Weasley’s mother in the hit films, which follow the life of teen wizard Harry – said: “The prince said he loved the Potters and said what great films they were and what great fun they were.”

Walters, who received her honour for services to drama and was previously made an OBE (Officer of the British Empire) in 1999, also spoke to Charles about her upcoming autobiography.

She added: “I told him I’m writing my memoirs at the moment and he said, ‘Oh you must have the editors constantly on.’ I said ‘Yes I know!’ He said, ‘They must be constantly saying have you got it done, how much more have you written’ – so he really got into that one!”

The 58-year-old actress shot to fame when she starred alongside Michael Caine in the hit 1983 film Educating Rita, for which she was nominated for an Oscar.

She was also nominated for an Academy Award for her role in Billy Elliot in 2001.
