Queen Refuses To Sit On Iron Throne

Despite whatever parallels you might see between the British Monarchy and that of the Seven Kingdoms, Queen Elizabeth II wants no part of it. Vulture comments: ‘As this photo clearly shows, the royal spurned an opportunity to sit on the Iron Throne while taking a tour of the “Game of Thrones” set in Belfast today. Maybe she declined because she didn’t want to offend the former GoT queen Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) in the background? Or maybe because the Queen didn’t want to be jabbed by the sharp blades that the throne is made out of? Or maybe she just has some sense: Royals in Westeros don’t tend to rule for very long.’
