The King and Queen are set to pay the estate a visit. We’re also shown that the former head butler Carson shows back up on the scene to lend a helping hand to the estate’s operation. The trailer also hints that a possible romance could be brewing between Branson and Lucy.
Lucy is one of the maids to a new character named Lady Bagshaw. Towards the end of the trailer, King George V and Queen Mary are seen being greeted to the Downton Abbey estate by Cora Crawley. She says, “Your majesties.”
