Downton is my home

It’s Prince George’s first birthday today and within a year he has already become better than all of us. Bow down.

I would never be happy with anyone else as long as you walked the earth. Which is true. And… I think you feel the same about me.

Were Matthew and Mary a 20th century power couple?

I think they certainly would have been if Matthew had lived and they ruled Downton together. It would have been one of the few grand estates that would have prospered thanks to Matthew’s foresight and plans. This would have given the new Earl and Countess a great deal of power. I believe they would have used it to better the lives of those less fortunate. WWI certainly took its toll on the the country as a whole. They might even have addressed women’s rights. I could see Matthew venturing into the political arena. I wonder if you could be an Earl and Lord Chancellor at the same time? (I would have loved to see Mary’s supposition to Lady Rosamund become a reality.).

As for Mary, I don’t see her as a Countess that would just sit home looking pretty. She would have worked at her husband’s side to keep Downton moving forward, and offered ideas of her own that I am sure Matthew would have taken into consideration. And they both would have done all they could to ensure that Downton would be sound when George took the reigns. Just think of the possibilities. Perhaps they could have been been called MARMAT.. Lol

I agree. and I wish beyond anything - we could have a full length movie of them as Earl/Countess with Dan/ Michelle of course. Full Downton movie - forget about the tv series…
