Kate Middleton “Overstayed” Her Visit to Downton Abbey
Laura Carmichael, who plays Lady Edith, told E! that Kate Middleton was very ‘normal’ when she visited the set. In fact, she didn’t want to leave,
“We all lost our minds,” Carmichael admitted. “We started talking to her about the catering—I’m sure things she found really boring but we all sort of lost it because we were panicked and star struck. It was one of those weird ones.”
“She’s a big fan of the show. I don’t think she’d been on a film set before or a TV set so she was intrigued by how different it looked on the screen and in reality. She overstayed. She stayed long. She was having such a good time.”
The final season of Downton Abbey premieres tonight in the U.K. followed by the U.S. in January.
