The best-selling writer – now worth close to £1 billion thanks to her wizarding books and films adaptations – reveals her feelings for the dad-to-be in her latest work.
She has recently penned a string of adult crime thrillers under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, in which the hero is a former Royal Military Police officer turned private investigator called Cormoran Strike.
And the latest instalment – Lethal White – sees Prince Harry, 34, a champion of injured servicemen with his Invictus Games, attending a reception for Paralympians ahead of London 2012.
A scene in the book reads: “Izzy… then peeked back over her shoulder at Prince Harry.
“’He gets sexier every passing day, doesn’t he?’ she whispered.”
Though the Scottish-born author clearly isn’t fan of what the Duke of Sussex might pack below the waistband, as the passage continues: “’Ginger pubes though, darling,’ said Charlotte, deadpan.
“Against his will, Strike grinned. Izzy snorted with laughter.”
Rowling has previously defended Prince Harry's wife Meghan, 37, after she was branded "unsuitable" for the royal family by a magazine for being a divorcee.
In response to the damning tweet by The Spectator, Rowling replied "#TeamDivorcée".
The Harry Potter creator has so far released four Strike books and hopes to produce at least 10 – with the next two already in the pipeline.
Rowling, 53, also revealed she imagines the character of Strike as "a hybrid" between her original idea and actor Tom Burke, who plays the lead character in the BBC adaptations of the novels.
She said she arrived at the alter ego of Robert Galbraith by mixing the name of her political hero Robert F Kennedy and her childhood fantasy name Ella Galbraith.
Yesterday we revealed the Duchess of Sussex is to use Chinese mystic art feng shui to lay out new home with Prince Harry.
The couple will move into Frogmore Cottage near Windsor Castle next month ahead of the birth of their first child.
The renovations are costing up to £3million. Taxpayers will foot the builders’ bill while the couple will pay for the interior.
