We learned last week that Queen Elizabeth II planned to tour the Game of Thrones set while visiting Belfast, thus making her the most badass monarch since Daenerys Targaryen.
That visit finally took place yesterday, providing us with the unforgettable images of the Queen shaking hands with Jon Snow and scoping out the Iron Throne:
Sadly, Her Majesty didn't take a seat on the Throne, which leads us to believe that either she's heard all the talk about how uncomfortable it is, or she knew that if anyone took a picture it would literally cause the Internet to explode.
Don't worry. The Queen's visit included some awesome moments nonetheless:
Not only did she hold a meet-and-greet with cast members Lena Headey, Rose Leslie, Sophie Turner and Kit Harington (we can only hope that he forgot to bow, prompting the Queen to growl, "You know nothing, Jon Snow), she also took home a mini replica of the Iron Throne.
Best of all, however, might be the fact that the Band of the Scots Guards played the Game of Thrones theme to commemorate the historic visit.
So yeah, when you're QE2 and you don't feel like waiting til next season, you just pop into King's Landing for a spot of tea. It's good to be the Queen.
If you're a lowly peasant dreading the 10-month wait for more GoT can always watch Game of Thrones online at TV Fanatic.
