The Queen’s Guard follows a strict protocol: no speaking, no smiling—okay, maybe giggling as seen here—but pretty much no engaging with the public. With that said, we’re guessing the regal band received approval to perform the Game of Thrones theme song in front of Buckingham Palace, which was recorded by a YouTube user. Possibly the band was inspired by Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip’s recent visit to the Game of Thrones set in Ireland?

The Queen’s Guard in London changes in the Forecourt of Buckingham Palace at 11:30 am every day in the summer. According to the British Monarchy’s website, the band performs a song at this time, and the music selection “ranges from traditional military marches to songs from films and musicals and even familiar pop songs.”

Their performance, in full uniform, is quite enchanting. You can watch below:
