Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has been awarded the Freedom of the City of London to recognise her services to children's literature.

Rowling was handed a framed parchment certificate of her accolade Tuesday.

“I am prouder than I can say to be given the freedom of the City,” dailystar.co.uk quoted the popular writer as saying.

The freedom traditionally permits the recipient to be drunk and disorderly on the streets of the city without fearing arrest, and to drive sheep over London Bridge - but these privileges are mainly symbolic in modern times.
