A new report claims a young boy confused Prince Harry for Harry Potter in London’s King’s Cross train station, but the article is entirely fabricated. Gossip Cop can reveal the truth. We’re told it’s “nonsense.”

The made-up story comes from the National Enquirer, which blares in a headline, “Harry’s A Prince, But He Ain’t No Potter!” In the accompanying article, the repeatedly discredited outlet claims Prince Harry was “strolling” through London’s iconic King’s Cross train station, featured in the Harry Potter series. The magazine then notes in bizarrely unnatural language that the royal’s heart “went all toasty-warm” when he heard a young boy shout his name through the crowd.

The tabloid’s seemingly made-up source asserts, “Prince Charming walked over to give the tyke a wee meet-and-greet, but the child’s mortified mother apologized as her disappointed kid whined loudly, ‘I wanted to meet Harry Potter, not this old man!'” Additionally, the magazine’s highly suspect insider further contends that the “red faced woman tut-tutted that they’re just tourists, and her kid simply got over excited visiting magical King’s Cross.” Prince Harry, however, allegedly found it “hysterically funny.”

Of course, the magazine’s story is as fictional as the Harry Potter books. Not only are the quotes absurdly fake, but the idea of an American tabloid writer being the only person to know about this incident thousands of miles away in a busy London train station is beyond fantastical. Still, Gossip Cop fact-checked this claim, and we’re told it never happened. An impeccable royal source assures us the entire report is utter “nonsense.”

To be sure, this isn’t the first time Gossip Cop has busted the Enquirer for its bogus stories about the Prince. Incredibly somehow, this latest article isn’t even the most ridiculous one we’ve had the pleasure to debunk. In May, we corrected the magazine for falsely alleging that Meghan Markle makes Prince Harry shave his pubic hair. That report wasn’t true, and the same goes for this latest piece of fiction.
