Kate Visits Downton Abbey!

For us Anglophiles, the day has come where our two worlds have met - Downton Abbey royalty and real ones! Kate visited the set of Downton Abbey today, and seemed to enjoy herself immensely.

Upon her arrival, Kate was presented with a wooden train set for Prince George from one of the little boys who plays George Crowley.

For those who don't know, Downton Abbey is the immensely popular television drama set in the early-mid twentieth century, focusing primarily on the upper class of Downton Abbey, but also the help.

Unusually for Kate, she was not the only star there! Observers noticed that Kate herself seemed a little starstruck (I am sure it was mutual ;). This nice infographic details the attendants, with Catherine in the middle.

Here she is pictured chatting with Jim Carter, who plays the loyal butler Carson.

Downton Abbey has proved popular with the Windsors and the Middletons - many of the members of the royal family have carried out engagements at Ealing Studios, and the Middletons had a private tour last year (sparking speculation that this was not Kate's first visit.) Indeed, Kate stayed a whole hour longed that was expected.

Kate had the opportunity to experience all aspects of Downton - the costume and makeup department, meeting and viewing the actors at work, and talking with the creators. Below she is with Downton creator Lord Julian Fellowes.

Back to the tour! Here she is in the makeup department, watching a scene being filmed and in the kitchen set:

Now to Kate's outfit - she wore a new designer! Her coat was by Jojo Maman Bébé. This is a maternity coat and is aptly named "Princess". She accessorized with the same pieces as yesterday - Stuart Weitzman Power Pumps, Mulberry clutch, and Annoushka pearl earrings.

I hope Kate had a lovely time - I certainly enjoyed looking at the photos! See you on St. Patricks Day for the Irish Guards ceremony. She has a new engagement scheduled for the next day, giving rise to rumors that she is due later in April, as we thought St. Patricks Day was her last engagement before giving birth. See you then!
