- Morning. - Special one today.
What have you got there?
Wouldn't you like to know.
Just arrived, milord.
There's one from Buckingham Palace.
But we really need to cut back
until the farms repay the investment.
And we must make a plan for the roof.
Well, this won't help us to economize.
What is it?
The king and queen are coming to stay.
During their Yorkshire tour?
That's it. Just for a night.
They'll spend one night at Downton
and then go on to Harewood for a ball.
While they're here,
there's to be a parade of the Yorkshire Hussars in the village.
Is there any chance Henry might be back?
Well, I doubt it.
I'll send a telegram.
But there's a motor show in Chicago
that I know he cannot chuck.
Tom, you're keeping your enthusiasm under control.
Is this the Irish patriot making a reappearance?
I know you find my opinions highly entertaining.
I suppose they'll send people to check that
Mrs. Patmore isn't a Russian spy.
Will you tell them downstairs, Barrow?
-我会告诉夫人的 -是 老爷
- I'll see to Her Ladyship. - Yes, milord.
皇家午宴 阅兵 还有一顿晚宴
A royal luncheon, a parade and a dinner?
I'm going to have to sit down.
- Oh, what about Mr. Branson? - What about him?
Well, he's a republican, isn't he?
Should Mr. Carson look in,
no one is to say that word in front of him.
I agree with Mr. Branson. I don't like kings, either.
I suppose that makes me a republican, too.
Are the English allowed to be?
Two weeks to get ready? Golly.
It's quite an honor.
But if I know anything about royal visits,
we will never stop changing our clothes.
I've just been on a buying spree,
which is good.
Madame Handley-Seymour is making me a ball dress.
- I'll get her to hurry it up. - Have her send it here.
- How are things otherwise? - Oh, you know.
I've got a luncheon for 30 today in aid of the lifeboats.
Or is that tomorrow?
Anyway, it's in aid of something.
Sounds like business as usual.
I'll see you soon, darling.
You know I can bring back
as many vegetables as we could eat.
- Yeah, I like to keep busy. - Yeah.
How have they taken the news up at the house?
Daisy's singing "The Marseillaise."
So no surprises there.
What's the matter?
I thought you'd be pleased.
I am pleased.
The visit is a great honor.
But members of the royal and imperial household
are coming to Downton
who will have visited the greatest houses in the land.
布莱尼姆 查特斯沃思 阿伦德尔
Blenheim, Chatsworth, Arundel.
Does Mr. Barrow know what he's taking on?
Why should it affect you?
You're not in charge anymore.
Now, come in for your lunch and let me get back.
All right, sir, here we are.
This will do very well. Thank you.
The Lady Bagshaw, Your Majesty.
We'll go to the 1844 Room as soon as they're here.
Do sit down.
I've just received the plan for the tour of Yorkshire, ma'am.
Yes. It's just been finalized.
I think we'll enjoy it.
I didn't realize we would be staying at Downton Abbey.
Only for a night.
There's to be a parade and a dinner,
and then we go on to Princess Mary at Harewood.
I just wondered if I might, perhaps,
go straight to Harewood.
Lord Grantham is my cousin,
and the two families have...
Or at least we might if I were there in person.
And what would cause this quarrel?
Lord Grantham's mother believes her son should be my heir.
Old Lady Grantham can be very hard to resist,
as I am well aware.
But, surely, they need to know
if their hopes are to be disappointed.
I wish I knew if they like simple food or fancy.
I can't think they'll want simple food.
With that sort, don't they like sauces
白酱汁 冰镇 什么都抹上奶油吧
and everything velouté and frappé and smothered in cream?
"That sort"? He's the King of England.
There's only one of them in the world.
"That sort," indeed.
Don't plan too much.
Not until we know what's expected.
Well, I know what's expected of me-- food.
你也是 黛西 少贫嘴 多干活儿吧
You, too, Daisy. So less philosophy, more elbow grease.
- Is the pudding ready? - It is.
Oh, Daisy, take the soufflés out of the oven
while I find me specs.
This country needs a shake-up.
You should run for parliament.
Why not? Lady Astor's done it.
And so an under-cook from Yorkshire is bound to follow her.
Well, you've got to have big dreams.
But do you have big dreams, Andy?
I've not offended you, have I?
- Why do you say that? - Well, for a start,
you never talk about the wedding anymore.
We'll get wed when we're good and ready and not before.
But, you see, I am ready.
Take those up before they collapse.
