Queen Elizabeth and hubby Prince Philip are in Belfast, Northern Ireland, checking out the set of Game of Thrones. You have to give QEII props for her pop culture prowess. Here are the highlights so far:

1. She doesn't look impressed by the iconic iron throne.

The Guardian reports that she declined an offer to sit in the throne.

2. She and Prince Philip checked out weapons used on the show.

3. She looked happier meeting Jon Snow and other "GOT" faves.

Lena Heady (Cersei Lannister), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Conleth Hill (Lord Varys), Rose Leslie (Ygritte), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) and Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) were on hand for the royal visit.

4. She got caught in a selfie!
