The wait for the return of Downton Abbey film is finally over! In cinemas now, the two hour long film is set in 1927 and it centres on a visit by King George V and Queen Mary to Downton Abbey. Many of the cast members from the original series have returned to the long-awaited film, including the famous Dame Maggie Smith and High Bonneville.
Throughout Downton Abbey’s six season run, the famous show’s lavish costumes became as much as a reason to tune in as the gripping storylines. The stunning Edwardian costumes and jewelry used throughout the series and film are a great tribute to fashion in the early 20th century.
