Duchess of Cambridge visits set of Downton Abbey

In one of her final- and finest- engagements before the pending birth of her second child, the Duchess of Cambridge visited the set of Downton Abbey on Thursday.

In one of her final - and finest - engagements before the pending birth of her second child, the Duchess of Cambridge visited the set of Downton Abbey on Thursday.
The British television show which has many fans including the Duchess herself, is based around an aristocratic family and their servants, and is in its sixth season.
While Prince William's wife is usually a fan of recycling the maternity outfits she wore when she was pregnant with Prince George, she chose to don a brand new coat when braving the countryside chill.
Her white JoJo Maman Bébé coat was paired with a set of elegant heels, while her envied luscious locks were let down on display.
The expectant royal chatted to the shows stars and visited all ends of the set, from costume rooms to the kitchens.
The Duchess of Cambridge also had a sneak peak of the sixth series, watching a scene being filmed on set.
"It was very exciting for everyone, the cast and the crew. It was a very special day for Downton. She’s watched the show and really loves it," Laura Carmichael - who plays Lady Edith Crawley - told the Daily Mail.
"Julien Fellowes thanked her in his speech for mentioning the show while she was in America and that she watched it and loved it. She helped put us on the map," she said of the expectant royal.
The Duchess of Cambridge previously attended two engagements on Wednesday, visiting the art gallery in Martgate, Turner Contemporary and an arts organisation in Cliftonville, Resort Studios.
The Duchess of Cambridge reportedly told architect Tamsin Landells and her husband Tim Ratcliff, about Prince George's fast feet these days, saying she often has to "chase after him," according to Us Weekly.
