The Duchess of Cornwall isn't the first person we'd expect to enjoy Game of Thrones, but according to Kit Harington, Camilla is a big fan of the saucy fantasy show. Speaking to Jonathan Ross, the actor revealed that Camilla once asked him for spoilers about the show.

The smash hit fantasy series left fans on a cliffhanger last year when Kit's character, Jon Snow, was attacked and left for dead. Speculation has been rife about whether the character survived or not, and apparently Camilla is just as obsessed with the mystery.

Kit revealed: "Me and my brother got invited to Wimbledon, as you do, and a Royal was hosting, we didn't know which Royal it was, and it was the Duchess of Cornwall and she was hosting it. And we got sat with her, me and my brother, and she leant over the table and said 'Are you dead?'

"No word of a lie," he continued.

He also confirmed that his character is definitely dead on the show, telling Jonathon: "I was playing a corpse... I won't tell you how many episodes I'm lying dead but it's enough that I was out there for quite a while.

"It's going to be so satisfying when you see it and you realise that I was telling the truth the whole time."

Camilla isn't the first royal to be interested in Game of Thrones, as just last year Queen Elizabeth herself visited the set during a trip to Belfast. However, she declined to sit on the famous Iron Throne.

"Apparently the Queen of England is not allowed to sit on a foreign thrones," Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss said on Late Night with Seth Myers. "This is an esoteric rule we didn’t know about until that moment."
