In a shocking royal twist, it's claimed that Kevin Spacey once sat on the Queen's throne during a private palace tour with her son, Prince Andrew.

The Sunday Times has reported that Spacey, who's been hit by sexual scandal, visited Buckingham several years ago. He is alleged to have sat on Queen Elizabeth's throne while being guided around by the Duke of York.

According to the British paper, American Beauty star Spacey is believed to have been shown into the throne room where — in what would have been a severe breach of protocol — photographs were taken of him sitting on one of the thrones reserved for the Queen and her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh.

The throne room features a chair embroidered with "EIIR," which was made for the English Queen's spectacular coronation in 1953.

Spacey allegedly got the VIP tour while he was artistic director of the Old Vic theatre in London. The actor worked there from 2004 to 2015, when he was well respected and years before this fall's sexual harassment charges against him broke.

The 58-year-old actor is now in a sex addiction rehab facility as his career has imploded. His TV show House of Cards was canceled and his part in a movie is being cut out.

Spacey, who came out of the closet as gay following the reports he allegedly jumped on an underage boy, was part of the second wave of sexual harassment claims following the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

Now, the Brits are stunned about what Spacey was apparently allowed to do in the palace!

A source told the Times, "Going anywhere near the thrones is a total no-no. If a member of staff did, there would be disciplinary action. The Queen would not have been amused."

It's not known whether the Queen was in the palace when Spacey had his tour, but Buckingham Palace confirmed that Spacey had visited Prince Andrew, with a spokesperson saying, "Buckingham Palace is home to a number of members of the royal family who, from time to time, host guests in a private capacity. We are not going to comment on speculation about any private meeting of any member of the royal family."
