Royal Tweet: Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip Confirmed to Visit ‘Game of Thrones’ Set
Things just got real over at HBO. Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, are set to take a spin around the Belfast studios where Game of Thrones is filmed, during their visit to Northern Ireland next week, reports Entertainment Weekly.
While the Queen doesn’t have her own Twitter account, which would be amazing, the British Monarchy does, announcing the visit with the below tweet:

The Brit-filled show just wrapped up its fourth season and is currently on hiatus. While the cast has scattered for the summer, we’re guessing someone will be on hand to receive the royals. Well, you’d think? It’ll be interesting to see if any of the main cast members are able to make their way back to Northern Ireland for the visit.
The Queen’s dance card is filling up for the summer; she’s currently attending the Royal Ascot horse race, a five-day event. Her 2013 Gold Cup winning horse Estimate is scheduled to compete tomorrow.
