It’s 1927 and it’s time for a royal visit. 

The first official trailer for the Downton Abbey movie is finally here and the Crawley family is preparing for the arrival of the King and Queen.

With the film set about 18 months after the end of the series, it means that the family will get to meet King George V and his wife, Queen Mary.

Last year, director Michael Engler teased that the feature adaptation of the small screen hit would see the household get ready for a big event.

“Life is settling into these new realities when this event happens at Downton that brings everybody together,” he said. “The story line has expanded the scale of it. It takes the things you love about Downton — the romance, the intrigue, the pageantry — and makes it bigger.”

Get ready for some good old British romance, intrigue, and pageantry this September.
