Watch: Queen's Guards playing Game of Thrones theme music
Tourists were treated to an impromptu performance during a changing of the guards ceremony
Sunday 20 July 2014
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 Irish Regiment 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 music.
Uploaded by Youtube user and holidaymaker Omer Barnea, the video has already received over 300,000 views and been shared across social media.
Yet, It is not the first time fans of the Thrones have been treated to a remixed version of the Game of Thrones opening sequence. From smooth jazz to dub step to rap, if it is a genre of music it has probably Thrones title theme the treatment. We have picked out a few of our favourites….
