England’s Queen Elizabeth II, a longtime fan of nudity, violence, and dragons, finally took a pilgrimage to her Mecca a few days ago, visiting the prop throne from the popular HBO fantasy show, Game of Thrones. The set was in Belfast. so she didn’t need to make as long a trip as many would.
Here’s a video of the encounter. It’s about as exciting as anything the Queen does these days.
Bonus points for Prince Charles picking up and examining what appears to be a torture implement, no doubt lamenting while he held it that the monarchy used to mean something when it could slice open traitors to the throne.
But then he set it down, and probably discussed with his wife where they would go hat shopping.
