Who knew that Queen Elizabeth II was this big a fan?!

Last week during the morning change, the Queen’s guards took everyone by surprise with a special cover of the Game of Thrones theme song in front of Buckingham Palace.

This can’t catch us too “off guard” knowing that grandmother to Princes William and Harry visited the series’ set in Belfast last month while on her Northern Ireland tour.

The British Monarchy shared this photo on social media with the caption,”The #IronThrone as you’ve never seen it before… @GameofThrones,” showcasing the Queen in front of the show’s Iron Throne.

Here’s a video of the Queen on set and interacting with the cast. Skip to minute 35 to see her reaction to the Iron Throne!

GoT has been nominated for 19 Emmys including Outstanding Drama Series, Peter Dinklage‘s fourth nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, and Lena Headey‘s first nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

Thankfully, the cover was not indicative of any major bloodshed or killing as it is in the HBO drama.
