Could Britain's Queen Elizabeth II rule over Westeros? As part of their three-day Northern Ireland royal tour, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, paid a visit on Tuesday to the set of one of television’s most popular shows, HBO’s “Game of Thrones.”
Despite speculation that the British royal may be a fan of the hit HBO series, based on the George R. R. Martin “A Song of Ice and Fire” series, Queen Elizabeth II, 88, reportedly didn't sit on the famous Iron Throne featured on the show.
