The Duchess of Cambridge has met up with cast members of Downton Abbey, including actors from our region who star in the ITV period drama on a behind-the-scenes tour.
The Duchess, apparently a huge fan of the show, visited the Ealing Studios set to celebrate the success of the production, which is now broadcast worldwide in 250 territories. The scheduled hour-long visit stretched to two hours as she toured various parts of the studio to meet the cast and crew.
Among those who described his role was Harrogate actor Jim Carter, who plays the butler Carson.
