The Harry Potter Canon

The phrase “Downing Street” usually is referring to number ten, Downing Street, the home of the British Muggle Prime Minister. This is where Kingsley Shacklebolt works undercover, protecting the Prime Minister during the war against Voldemort. After he helps fly Harry away from number four, Privet Drive, Kingsley is the first to depart the Burrow, saying that he has “to get back to Downing Street,” as he “should have been there an hour ago” (DH5).
