Queen Elizabeth II visits Game Of Thrones set, refuses to sit on Iron Throne

BELFAST (REUTERS) - Britain's Queen Elizabeth II visited the set of hit television series Game Of Thrones, one of the highest profile foreign investments in Northern Ireland since the financial crisis ended a post-peace process boom.

Accompanied by her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Queen browsed the costumes and weapons and met some of the lead actors from the fantasy show made by Time Warner Inc's HBO.

Fans of the series voiced disappointment on Twitter that although she looked at the "Iron Throne" - the focus of the series which, according to the plot, was forged from the swords of defeated monarchs - she declined to sit on it.
