Her Majesty The Queen has passed the patronage to The Duchess having held the role for over 65 years. Her Majesty took the patronage over from Queen Mary in 1953. To mark her new patronage, The Duchess is visiting Peterley Manor Farm where she will join families and children supported by the Family Action taking part in Christmas activities.
The Duchess of Cambridge has spent much of the last eight years meeting charities and organisations who work every day to make our families and communities stronger. There is a powerful correlation between a parent or carer’s wellbeing and their child’s development, which is why organisations such as Family Action that provide support are instrumental to a child’s future. This new patronage aligns with Her Royal Highness’ longstanding work on the early years, and the importance of supporting children
"We're having those conversations. We're working on what the story is, and when we might be able to make it," Carnival Films chairman Gareth Neame told The Hollywood Reporter. "But it's the same as the first time around: We have to try to get everyone back together again. And that was very challenging . . . We started vaguely thinking about it before the release of the movie. But we were kind of holding our breath. The reaction to the film, the press tour in the [Us] and the buildup to release were so strong that we'd been thinking about it. And then it was clear from the first weekend
Focus Features cashed in at the box office with a $31 million opening, a record for the studio. The movie has since grossed $90 million domestically and $165 million worldwide. The next step? Awards season, especially the Screen Actors Guild, which honored the TV series with its drama ensemble trophy three times, in 2012, 2014 and 2015.

"Downton Abbey", is a reboot of the television series of the same name. The film picks up the saga of the Crawley family and their mostly loyal servants in 1927, a year and a half after the series ended.
The saga is set into motion with Robert and Cora Crawley, the Earl and Countess of Grantham, receiving a letter from Buckingham Palace that informs them that King George V (Simon Jones) and Queen Mary (Geraldine James) will visit Downton Abbey as part of a royal tour through the country.
The excitement of receiving the royals keeps the momentum of the narrative racing, and this is maintained till the very end.
The spreading of the news deftly allows for an introductory montage, as each character
The post Event Report: Dark Harbor 2019 appeared first on Dread Central.
Little did I know, I would get completely sucked in and hooked with the story and its characters. It’s just such a great series that was written extremely well and filled with wonderful and interesting characters that I wanted to get to know more about.
Well, if you’re like me and you enjoyed the series, you’re going to love the Downton Abbey movie! Not only was it great to see all of these characters again and see their story arcs continue, but it was just a perfectly made film
This week, with the “Downton Abbey” movie reaching theaters on Friday, fans can’t wait for their fix of Lady Mary and Lady Edith, Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes, Daisy and Mrs. Patmore. But what can they expect from the music?
“Bigger, better, grander,” says Glasgow-born composer John Lunn, who scored all 52 episodes over six seasons and won two Emmys in the process. Fans will agree, particularly when they first glimpse England’s Highclere Castle on the big screen with Lunn’s new, richly scored recording of the theme.
“It’s not like a movie remake of a TV series,” says Lunn by phone from New York, where he attended Monday’s premiere. “It’s
The Downton Abbey movie — which feels a lot like an episode of the show, only longer and more lavish, with more sweeping aerial shots than ever before — picks up two years after the series finale, with the Crawleys learning that the King and Queen of England are set to visit as part of their upcoming royal tour. In true Downton fashion,
As the long-awaited Downton Abbey movie arrived in theaters on Thursday, several of the film’s biggest stars surprised an audience full of fans in Los Angeles.
Michelle Dockery, Elizabeth McGovern, Allen Leech and Hugh Bonneville were all on hand at the Landmark theater on Thursday, as was director Michael Engler, creator Julian Fellowes and producer Gareth Neame.
“It’s opening night of the Downton Abbey film here in La and me and my friends are here to surprise an audience,” Dockery, 37, shared in an Instagram Story from moments before the big reveal, as
“For the family members, the idea was to put on costumes that belonged on the big screen,” said Robbins, who joined the series for Seasons 5 and 6, and took a deeper dive into researching 1920s wardrobe for the movie, frequenting the National Portrait Gallery and the Victoria & Albert Museum. “The level of detail that is seen is much higher so the quality control on the construction and finish and the restoration of original pieces had to be top-notch. My goal was to raise
“There was a WhatsApp group,” Hugh Bonneville tells People.
“Isn’t there one called ‘Da Bitches’?” Allen Leech asks.
“That’s with me, Lily James and Laura Carmichael,” Michelle Dockery says of her on-screen cousin and sister, respectively. “Just the girls. But there are a few now.”
Once everyone returned to Downton Abbey to shoot the anticipated movie, “It was this great reunion,” Dockery, 37, says.
Rumblings of the series heading to the big screen began even before Downton Abbey ended, but the
Let’s face it, a lot has happened in our world (and on our TVs) since the titular estate closed its doors in 2015, so we wouldn’t blame you for forgetting a few characters’ names or current situations. Heck, even when this show was airing, it was sometimes difficult to keep up with its ever-evolving Game of Thrones-sized ensemble. (Never mind that the Crawleys employed a future Wildling to work in their kitchen.
“The Crown,” for all its sumptuousness and elegance, will never make viewers truly love Britain’s royals, but this sweeping soap about compassionate lords and ladies and the underpaid staff they treat like family is the television equivalent of being tucked into a warm bed on a cold rainy night.
For this theatrical sequel, set in 1927, two years after where the series ended, creator-screenwriter Julian Fellowes and veteran TV director Michael Engler have delivered a densely packed two-hour episode that manages to
The British royal family is one of a kind, which is made clear by the fact that they're still heads of the British monarchy, reside in a palace, and have a jewelry collection so vast that most of it is stored in a special tower. In fact, the short list of who gets to wear the crown jewels is even more telling of the royals and their prominence than one might think. So, who has access to these coveted gems, jewels, and crowns? The reigning monarch of course has full access to the crown jewels, but Her Majesty isn't the only one who
This week sees the release of Universal Pictures’ period drama Downton Abbey, adapted from the enormously popular ITV series that ran from 2010 to 2015.
Michael Engler directed the feature, having helmed several episodes of the series, from a screenplay by its original creator Julian Fellowes. Returning cast members include Hugh Bonneville, Laura Carmichael and Jim Carter. The film sees the Crawley film await a visit from King George V and Queen Mary.
The project is tailor-made for a UK cinema-going audience thanks to the popularity of the series combined with the typical success of

Not that they need a reason. The Crawley family, inhabitants of the massive estate that gives the film its name, dress for dinner nightly. But a big, multistage party in honor of the royals gives “Downton Abbey” something at its center with high enough stakes and the requisite amount of retro luxury. It also provides an opportunity for writer Julian Fellowes
