Yes, it’s back and we’re loving it and delighted that the series has done so well in the Emmy Awards – congratulations especially to Dame Maggie Smith. Equally delighted that we have unearthed a link with Kent!
The Kent Spitfire will be flying over the real Downton Abbey, that is Highclere Castle, Berkshire celebrating the prestigious Help for Heroes event to be held there on Sunday October 16, 2011. The charity event is being hosted by Lady Carnarvon, the current owner of Highclere (the one who picks up the maintenance bills – just imagine the noughts!)
Many of the Downton Abbey cast will be attending the event. Put the date in your diary now to relive a little bit of the past – which side of the green baize door would you have been – hostess or housemaid?
