Queen ‘rents out part of royal forest to Harry Potter filmmakers’
Queen Elizabeth II has reportedly rented out part of a huge forest near Windsor Castle for the filming of a Harry Potter movie.
The shooting for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the final part of the series, will allegedly take place in the woodlands over the next two months.
Entire sections of the 2,600-acre Swinley Forest in Berkshire, 12 miles from Windsor Castle, were reportedly sealed off for the filming, reports The Sun.
Staff from the Crown Estate had purportedly inked a lucrative deal with producers Warner Brothers though the amount remained unknown.
The Monarch, who was said to a huge fan of the hit wizard series, was also said to be “delighted”.
