The story, which is written from the perspective of gossip columnist Rita Skeeter, reveals that Harry is now 34-years-old and working at the Ministry of Magic.
Skeeter writes: “There are a couple of threads of silver in the famous Auror’s black hair, but he continues to wear the distinctive round glasses that some might say are better suited to a style-deficient twelve-year-old.”
The new story also gives some details about Ron and Hermione.
Ron worked with Harry at the Ministry of Magic for a few years but now managers a joke shop called Wizard Wheezes. Hermione is a deputy in the Department of Magical Law Enforcement.
Skeeter writes: “After a meteoric rise to Deputy Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, she is now tipped to go even higher within the Ministry, and is also mother to son, Hugo, and daughter, Rose. Does Hermione Granger prove that a witch really can have it all? (No – look at her hair.”
