Queen Elizabeth and her husband toured the set of"Game of Thrones" yesterday, as part of their visit to Northern Ireland.

Unfortunately, the money shot everybody was waiting for never happened...because the Queen did NOT sit on the Iron Throne!!!

She gave it a good look, though, and the monarchy posted a picture of it on Instagram.  Yes, the British monarchy has its own Instagram.


(Here's video.  She enters the throne room at 35:20, and checks out the throne at about 37:58.)
