Queen Elizabeth II Blazes a Trail in Pop Culture

Being born into royalty, to then the Duke and Duchess of York, the Queen was immediately in the spotlight.

Princess Elizabeth was born on April 21, 1926. That same year, A.A. Milne dedicated Teddy Bear and Other Songs, which featured his beloved character, Winnie-the-Pooh, to the new Princess.

According to Comic Vine, the Queen made 77 appearances in various comic books, such as West Coast Avengers and Star Trek. Pop artist Andy Warhol included Queen Elizabeth in his 16-piece series, “Reigning Queens 1985.”

But there is much more to the Queen’s immortality than these examples. There are probably hundreds more. The following is a list of the top 10 times the world loved the Queen so much, international society made her a part of pop culture.

In 2014, amidst the heyday of the well-known show, the Queen visited the Westeros set in Belfast, Ireland, along with Prince Philip. The tour included having the show’s Producers, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, lead them behind the scenes, including taking them to the impressive Iron Throne.

Saying No to the Iron Throne

However, the Queen must have been exhausted from being the monarch of 15 countries. She said “no” to sitting on the Iron Throne. The idea of ruling a kingdom with dragons and dark magic may have been too much for her.

The longest-running tv show had to include the adored Queen in some of its episodes. She appeared in six episodes of The Simpsons, and the characters mentioned her in three other episodes.

“D’Oh,” Homer Hit the Queen

The Queen laid down the law when she sentenced Homer to prison in the infamous Tower of London. While vacationing in London with Marge and the rest of the family, Homer hit Queen Elizabeth’s carriage with the Mini Cooper he was driving.
