“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling on Friday predicted that Scotland will leave the United Kingdom in the wake of the U.K. vote to leave the European Union

“Scotland will seek independence now,” she tweeted the day after Britain voted in favor of a so-called Brexit. “[Prime Minister David] Cameron’s legacy will be breaking up two unions. Neither needed to happen.”

Sixty-two percent of Scottish voters backed remaining in the EU. And in 2014, Scotland voted against independence from the U.K. chiefly in order to remain with the European bloc.

Scottish leaders are calling for another independence referendum in the wake of the Brexit vote.
