Downton Abbey has " royal approval"!

At last week's BAFTA event of 'Brits to Watch" held in Los Angeles, Jessica Brown Findlay (Sybil Crawley of Downton Abbey) was one of the chosen few invited to attend and meet Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

From Express.co:
Jessica mentioned meeting William and Kate, “They said they’d watched the show and were excited to see the second series.

“Prince William is very handsome and Kate is a gorgeous girl. They make a perfect couple. They seemed really at ease and so in love. I didn’t think when I was watching the wedding at home on TV that I’d get to meet them. I was nervous the whole night, but what an honour! I’ll never forget that.”

“To be in that room with so many actors whose work I admire was wonderful.”

Speaking of what's ahead for Sybil in season two, Jessica said: “She’s still got that rebellious streak in her. That doesn’t disappear. But with the weight of the First World War comes a lot more responsibility.

“The biggest change in Sybil is in that young naivety of ‘surely everything could change’. She’s forced through her own will and by circumstance to see and experience the real world outside the house. It’s great that my character is developing like that. You don’t often get the chance to do that.”
