Plot summary

What is Downton Abbey movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Downton Abbey" movie plot summary.

In 1927 (around a year and a half after the final events shown in the TV series), Buckingham Palace informs Robert (Hugh Bonneville) and Cora Crawley (Elizabeth McGovern), the Earl and Countess of Grantham, that King George V (Simon Jones) and Queen Mary (Geraldine James) will visit Downton Abbey during a royal tour through Yorkshire. Violet Crawley (Maggie Smith), Dowager Countess of Grantham, is perturbed that Maud (Imelda Staunton), Lady Bagshaw, who is Queen Mary's lady-in-waiting, will be included in the tour. Robert is Maud's cousin and closest relative, and the two families have long disputed who should inherit Maud's estate.
The royal household staff arrive first. They include Mr Wilson (David Haig), the Royal Page of the Backstairs; Mrs Webb (Richenda Carey), the Royal Housekeeper; Miss Lawton (Susan Lynch), the Queen's Royal Dresser; Monsieur Courbet (Philippe Spall), the Royal Chef; and Richard Ellis (Max Brown), the King's Royal Dresser. All but Ellis are dismissive and arrogant to the Downton servants. Upstairs, eldest Crawley daughter Lady Mary Talbot (Michelle Dockery), the estate manager, constantly worries about keeping Downton afloat in a fast-changing world. Believing Mr Barrow unable to manage a royal visit, Mary asks Mr Carson (Jim Carter), Downton's retired butler, to temporarily resume his duties. Barrow, strongly protesting, steps aside.
A man, Major Chetwode (Stephen Campbell Moore), arrives in Downton Village seeking out the Granthams' Irish son-in-law, Tom Branson (Allen Leech). Tom believes Chetwode is a detective assessing security for the royal visit.
The royal entourage completely displaces the Downton household. Meanwhile, Tom and Lucy Smith (Tuppence Middleton), Lady Maud's maid, form a mutual attraction. Bertie and Edith Pelham (Laura Carmichael), the Marquess and Marchioness of Hexham, also arrive at Downton. The King asks Bertie to accompany the Prince of Wales on a three-month African tour. The news distresses Lady Edith, the younger Crawley daughter, who tells Bertie she is pregnant and is due just as Bertie would depart. Prior to the royal parade starting through Downton Village, Chetwode stations himself near where the King is awaiting the Royal Artillery, unaware that Tom has grown suspicious. As Chetwode aims a pistol at King George (Oliver Barker), Tom tackles Chetwode, pinning him to the ground. The genuine royal detectives apprehend Chetwode, an Irish Republican sympathiser who erroneously assumed Tom was an ally.
