We all love a good conspiracy theory and even better we love a good Harry Potter theory that can spell bound us almost as much as the characters themselves. 

But the latest craze to take the internet by storm one took us by surprise, according to Teen Vogue people are speculating that aunt you never want, Petunia Dursley, is in fact a wizard!

"The theory supposes that Aunt Petunia actually isn't a Muggle but a wizard, who suppressed her powers after being rejected by the magical community. The interesting theory stems from J.K Rowlings answer to a fan question during a 2004 conversation at the Edinburgh Book Festival. The fan asked the author if Aunt Petunia was a squib."

J.K was apparently at the time so taken aback by the question that fans are starting to think more in-depth about her response

"Good question. No, she is not, but—[Laughter]. No, she is not a Squib. She is a Muggle, but—[Laughter]. You will have to read the other books. You might have got the impression that there is a little bit more to Aunt Petunia than meets the eye, and you will find out what it is."
These comments paired with this subtle passage at the end of the final Harry Potter book have really got even the biggest of fans, questioning the real identity of  Aunt P..

"She stopped and looked back. For a moment Harry had the strangest feeling that [Aunt Petunia] wanted to say something to him. She gave him an odd, tremulous look and seemed to teeter on the edge of speech, but then, with a little jerk of her head, she bustled out of the room after her husband and son."

This is really going to test us now, could it be that she was a wizard the entire time?! We will never know...
