Will she actually sit on it? On a day where Kit Harington is smiling, anything is possible.
Fans were gripped by the Sky News live feedwould Elizabeth II dare to take up that poisoned chalice and plant herself on the throne?
It even looked as if cast member Lena Headeyon-screen Queen, Cersei Lannisterwas encouraging her Maj to take a seat.
