What happens when Great Britain’s most popular citizen visits the set of Great Britain’s most popular television series?

We’ll soon find out!

Multiple outlets confirm that Kate Middleton will visit Ealing Studios on March 12 “to celebrate the success of” Downton Abbey, with the Duchess of Cambridge even receiving a personal set tour from producer Liz Trubridge.

Along the way, Middleton will meet with Downton Abbey cast and crew members; including Dame Maggie Smith, Phyllis Logan, Robert James-Collier, Lesley Nicol and Sophie McShera.

According to the palace, Middleton will “watch one take of a scene being filmed in the servants’ quarters for series 6 and a second take of the scene via a monitor in the ‘Video Village’ area, before proceeding to the Servants Hall to join cast members, writers and producers in an official photograph.”

Let’s hope this one does not include a plastic water bottle.

By sheer coincidence, Kate’s gorgeous sister, Pippa Middleton, grew up playing tennis with Michelle Dockery, who portrays Lady Mary Crawley on the award-winning drama.

The longtime friends have remained friends into adulthood, even attending a Wimbledon match together last year.

Kate Middleton, meanwhile, made a rare video appearance last month on order to raise awareness of children’s health issues.
