Things are going too well right now with Daenerys Targaryen. Her best friends are dropping faster than her dragons, and everybody prefers her boyfriend/nephew.
It’s therefore nice to see her real life counterpart – Emilia Clarke – kicking back, having a laugh, and getting some much needed royal treatment at the Western Conference semi-finals at Houston’s Toyota Center.
The game was between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets, and was a far less vicious sporting event than the jousting matches at King’s Landing.
Check out the exceedingly likeable Emilia being treated like the queen she is in the following clip:
Hilariously brilliant footage has gone viral which shows a mascot dropping their coffee cup in surprise at the sight of the Khaleesi off duty.
Clasping a big fluffy hand to their heart, the mascot then pledged his allegiance to the Mother of Dragons, bending the knee and declaring his loyalty.
Emilia appeared delighted and greatly amused by this surprising new allegiance to her campaign for the throne, giving a queen like wave.

Meanwhile, fans have taken to Twitter to express their own love of this refreshingly down-to-earth princess.
One person squeaked:
Emilia Clarke is a Rockets fan!!! I repeat, the Khalessi is in Houston sitting courtside at the rockets game !!!!
Another excitable fan said:
What? The mother of dragons is in houston and golden state games! DRACARYS!!!!

Amazingly, this game was also attended by another queen, with Beyoncé herself being in attendance.

Daenerys may not have made much of an impression at King’s Landing, but she has been welcomed to Houston with open arms.
You can watch the new season of Game of Thrones on HBO or Sky Atlantic.
