prince charles platform 9 3 4 harry potter Prince Charles visits 'Harry Potter' Platform 9 3/4 for London Underground 150th anniversary

Either Prince Charles and Camilla are some major “Harry Potter” aficionados, or the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall were just being very thorough during their recent tour of the London Underground. Our guess? Both.

In honor of the 150th anniversary of the London subway system, the royal couple visited various parts of the Underground and even took a short tube ride. One of the locations they traveled to just happened to be in King’s Cross Station: Platform 9 3/4.

Yes, Muggles can visit the famous “Harry Potter” landmark in real life, though you seem to need to be a magic user to push the cart seen above through to the wizarding side of the platform. The adorable picture shows Charles and Camilla posing with the Platform 9 3/4 landmark, which is now accompanied by a special “Harry Potter” shop in King’s Cross.

Random fun fact from BBC: The last time Charles rode the tube was when he opened Heathrow Airport’s Terminal 4 in 1986. Ah, the perks of being royalty.
