Queen Elizabeth II toured the Game of Thrones set in Belfast, Ireland on Tuesday and after seeing the ‘Iron Throne’ of the fictional King of the Seven Kingdoms, she chose not to sit on it.
During her visit, the queen met and talked with the show’s stars Lena Headey, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, Kit Harington, Rose Leslie and Conleth Hill. She was showed round the massive set by the show creators Dan Weiss and David Benioff.
Now while it is unclear why the Queen refused to sit on the Iron Throne, one can guess that she felt it was too ugly compared to her own throne (below).
