The clip the truth about Cedric's death from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005) with Michael Gambon
Today, we acknowledge a really terrible loss.
Cedric Diggory was, as you all know exceptionally hard-working infinitely fair-minded and, most importantly a fierce, fierce friend.
Now, I think, therefore, you have the right to know exactly how he died.
You see Cedric Diggory was murdered by Lord Voldemort!
The Ministry of Magic does not wish me to tell you this.
But not to do so, I think, would be an insult to his memory.
Now, the pain we all feel at this dreadful loss reminds me and reminds us that while we may come from different places and speak in different tongues our hearts beat as one.
In light of recent events the bonds of friendship we've made this year will be more important than ever.
Remember that, and Cedric Diggory will not have died in vain.
You remember that and we'll celebrate a boy who was kind and honest and brave and true, right to the very end.
