Did you know King George and Queen Mary's Downton visit is based on a real-life royal trip? Yes, Downton Abbey's movie plot happened in real life. It was inspired by a trip King George V and Queen Mary took to Wentworth Woodhouse in Yorkshire in 1912. Actually, the real-life historical inspiration of the movie is not a surprise. Why? Because Downton mastermind Julian Fellowes has associated real-life historical events with the series. But, of course, there are differences with the movie and in real-life royalty. For instance, in the movie, the Crawley family is informed they will host the royal family, whom they have met but do not know well. Historically, the king and queen were more likely to visit people they knew. Furthermore, King George and Queen Mary stayed at Downton Abbey for two nights. In fact, they visited Wentworth Woodhouse for four nights. Did this make you more than excited to watch the movie adaptation of Downton Abbey?
