‘Game of Thrones’ fans doubted Queen Elizabeth II’s dedication to her fellow royals when she declined a chance to sit on the TV show’s famed throne of swords, but it turns out they had nothing to worry about.
Over the last month the Queen’s visit to the set of the hit HBO series has turned into a running internet joke, with a photo of her looking disdainfully at the Iron Throne becoming a monarchical meme. Fans of the show would die — figuratively — for that honor! (To be fair, she does have a throne of her own.)
Rest easy, ‘GOT’ viewers. The Queen made it pretty obvious she is a fan after all, since she had the Queen’s Guard perform the theme song at Buckingham Palace. They played an orchestral version during the Changing of the Guard, captured on camera by some lucky tourists who witnessed it in person.
If you’ve watched the show, then you know the music is already a brilliant part of its production. But played by official royal guards in uniform outside of a real-life palace makes it unbelievably awesome.
