It seems one throne is enough for the Queen. She toured the Belfast sets of the hit HBO series Game of Thrones and took a good look at the show's sword-covered seat of power, the Iron Throne. Unlike many visitors to Belfast's Titanic Studios, the monarch declined to take a seat on the throne.

Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss showed the Queen some of the show's set, props and costumes. She chatted with actors Lena Headey, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, Kit Harington, Rose Leslie and Conleth Hill.

A cheeky lad managed to grab a selfie of himself with the Queen as she visited St George's indoor market in Belfast.

We look forward to seeing the picture pop up on Facebook or Instagram.

The Queen also visited Belfast's Crumlin Road Gaol, where she was shown around by tour guides with first-hand experience. Northern Ireland's First and Deputy First Ministers Peter Robinson and Martin McGuinness were both detained at the former prison during the Troubles.

Sinn Fein's Mr McGuinness was held in the prison for six weeks in 1976 on a charge of IRA membership. Democratic Unionist leader Mr Robinson was locked up there four times during the 1980s for protesting against the controversial Anglo Irish Agreement.

The notorious prison has now been transformed into a popular visitor attraction and conference centre.
