Rita Skeeter first publishes an article about Harry in the Daily Prophet

Rita Skeeter interviewed Harry Potter at the Weighing of the Wands ceremony before the Triwizard Tournament (GF18). Her Daily Prophet article was supposed to be about all four of the competing Champions, but instead focused particularly on Harry and his supposed “feelings” about his parents and finding love with Hermione Granger, described as “a stunningly pretty Muggle-born girl” (GF19).

Timeline Notes

The publication of the article takes place between 13 November 1994, when Rita interviews Harry, and the Hogsmeade weekend on 21 November. This is too short a time for the "ten days earlier" specified by Harry.
