Forget scandalous princes, high-born dukes and Dowager Countesses (however quick-witted), Downton Abbey welcomed a truly special guest today.
The Duchess of Cambridge graced the set with her presence this morning, dropping by Ealing Studios in West London, where scenes in the servants quarters and Violet’s house are filmed.
We like to think the pregnant royal, who is a self-confessed fan of the hit period drama, was excited about her trip. But we know the cast and crew were most definitely looking forward to their famous guest…
Ooooo, we've got an exciting day ahead on the Downton set, a very special visitor is popping in….. X
