Wizarding World Cast and Crew Members Make Tributes to Queen Elizabeth II

Following the statement made by Buckingham Palace earlier today on the death of Queen Elizabeth II, Wizarding World cast and crew members have taken to social media with messages of support and love over the death of the longest-reigning monarch in British history.

The queen was a steadfast and constant figure for millions of people over the decades. James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley) both took to Twitter to thank the queen for her life of service.




The London production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child also took to Twitter to express profound sadness at the news of Her Majesty’s death.



Stephen Fry, the narrator of the British Harry Potter audiobooks, posted on Twitter that he was sobbing at the news.



Though not overly supportive of the monarchy itself, both Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) and Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy) expressed their feelings of loss in response to the death of the queen.

Chris Rankin (Percy Weasley) reflected on the upcoming changes for the United Kingdom and the world due to the queen’s death.



The queen’s eldest son now takes the throne as King Charles III. He will lead the UK and Commonwealth countries in a ten-day mourning period. A date for the queen’s funeral has not yet been announced, but it is likely to take place on Monday, September 19.
