The Daily Mail was a Muggle tabloid newspaper that was published daily.[1]

Vernon Dursley was among this newspaper's readers.[2] When Harry Potter entered the kitchen at 4 Privet Drive on the morning 23 August 1994, Vernon Dursley did not acknowledge him, as he was absorbed in his copy of the Daily Mail.[2]

A few days after the Millennium Bridge attack in the summer of 1996, patrons at Treats were seen reading various newspapers, including the Daily Mail.[3]

Behind the scenes

  • The Daily Mail is a real-world tabloid newspaper founded in 1896.[1] It is is the United Kingdom's second biggest-selling daily newspaper.
  • J. K. Rowling has said she particularly dislikes this British tabloid, which once made references to a stalker she insisted did not exist, and conducted interviews with her estranged ex-husband. As one journalist noted, "Harry's Uncle Vernon is a grotesque philistine of violent tendencies and remarkably little brain. It is not difficult to guess which newspaper Rowling gives him to read."[4]
