It seems everyone loves the hit HBO series “Game of Thrones,” – even real-life royalty.

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth toured the show’s sets during a three-day trip to Belfast, Ireland.

The 88-year-old monarch met many of the show’s stars on Tuesday, including Lena Headey, Kit Harington, Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams, beside the show’s sword-covered seat of power, the Iron Throne. No word on how it compared to the one at her house.

Earlier this year, HBO announced that the TV series, based on books by George R.R. Martin, has set the record as the most popular show in network history.

The show’s creators, David Benioff and Dan Weiss, escorted the royals through the large indoor studio and showed them a variety of props and costumes.

The monarch was given a souvenir version of the Iron Throne before she embarked on the rest of her three-day royal tour of the country.
