The US television series is partly filmed in the city's Titanic Quarter and is a focal point for Northern Ireland's burgeoning film industry, reported BBC online. The Queen and Prince Philip also viewed some of the props that have featured in the hit fantasy show, which wrapped up its fourth season recently.
Before leaving, they were presented with a miniature version of the infamous Iron Throne that appears in the series, based on JRR Martin's books. But the 88-year-old monarch apparently declined to sit on the show's sword-covered Iron Throne.
