So much for all those Starks and Targaryens muddling up the blue (and red) blood on the sets of Game Of Thrones. Now, the hit HBO show is getting a real queen, England’s Elizabeth II, who will sail onto the set in Belfast’s Titanic Quarter next week as part of a three-day visit to Northern Ireleand, her official Twitter feed announced this morning. The show shoots on a number of Northern Ireland sets for at least some of its key scenes, such as those at The Wall and the Eyrie. No official word whether the Queen is a fan of the show, or whether she’ll bring her favorite dragon.
