Story intro

The film begins in 1927, about a year and a half after the TV series ended. Buckingham Palace informs Robert and Cora Crawley, the Earl and Countess of Grantham, that King George V and Queen Mary will visit Downton Abbey as part of a royal tour through the country. Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham, is perturbed that Maud, Lady Bagshaw, Queen Mary's lady-in-waiting, is included in the tour. Robert is Maud's cousin and her closest relative. The two families have fallen out over who should inherit Maud's estate. Members of the royal household arrive, including Mr Wilson, the Royal Page of the Backstairs; Mrs. Webb, the Royal Housekeeper; Miss Lawton; the Queen's Royal Dresser; Monsieur Courbet, the Royal Chef; and Richard Ellis, the King's Royal Dresser. The Downton servants are affronted by the royal household's arrogance. Upstairs, Lady Mary Talbot, the Crawley's eldest daughter who oversees the estate, believes that butler Thomas Barrow is unable to manage a royal visit. She asks Mr. Carson, Downton's retired butler, to temporarily resume his former duties. Barrow, upset, strongly protests but steps aside. Robert is impressed by Barrow's principled stand and dismisses Mary's suggestion he be sacked. Downstairs, assistant cook Daisy delays planning her wedding to footman Andy Parker, unsure he is the right man. Andy, jealous when a plumber flirts with Daisy, reacts angrily and damages the newly repaired boiler. A man calling himself Major Chetwode arrives in Downton Village. He seeks out the Granthams' son-in-law, Tom Branson, who assumes Chetwode is a detective assessing security for the royal visit. Prior to the royal parade starting through Downton Village, Chetwode goes to where the King is awaiting the Royal Artillery, unaware that Tom, now suspicious, is trailing him. As Chetwode aims a pistol at King George, Tom tackles Chetwode, pinning him to the ground. Lady Mary, following Tom, kicks the weapon away. The real royal detectives arrest Chetwode, an Irish Republican sympathizer who erroneously believed Tom was an ally.
