The Queen Has Mentioned "Game Of Thrones" In Her Christmas Message

    Windsor is coming.

    So The Queen said this in her Christmas message.

    BBC /

    In a speech where she talked about the 100 year anniversary of World War I and paid tribute to aid workers treating those with Ebola in West Africa, The Queen mentioned visiting the set of Game of Thrones whilst talking about reconciliation in Northern Ireland.

    The benefits of reconciliation were clear to see when I visited Belfast in June. While my tour of the set of Game Of Thrones may have gained most attention, my visit to the Crumlin Road Gaol will remain vividly in my mind.What was once a prison during the Troubles is now a place of hope and fresh purpose; a reminder of what is possible when people reach out to one another, rather like the couple in the sculpture.

    The reaction by the public? Surprise and delight.

    My mother still wetting herself over The Queen's Game of Thrones reference - the highlight of Christmas so far

    Did the Queen seriously just name drop Game of Thrones!? I thought she'd have been more of an Orange is the New Black fan. #QueensSpeech

    No one had Game of Thrones in the Queen's speech sweepstake. Bet she did it for a bet.
