The Queen’s trip to the Game of Thrones set in Belfast last month must have had an impact.

So much so, that it seems old Liz has even got her own band playing the popular TV show's theme music.

During one of the daily changing of the guard ceremonies at the Queen’s Buckingham Palace home, the Queen’s Guards treated tourists to an impromptu performance of the title music from the Emmy award winning show.

While changing of the guard ceremonies are usually interesting, but in reality a bit mundane, this one was a bit different, with the Band of the Irish Guards blasting out a live performance Ramin Djawadi’s iconic opening credits theme.

Beginning in a similar vein to all of those thousand changing of the guard ceremonies that have gone before it, the drum role begins before being accompanied by the haunting theme.

Uploaded by Youtube user and holidaymaker Omer Barnea, the video has already received over 300,000 views and been shared across social media.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
