The Crawley family and their devoted servants are preparing for the most important event in the history of Downton Abbey - the visit of the King and Queen of England. In order for the celebration to be perfect, the inhabitants of the old estate are ready to do everything possible and impossible.
The action of the feature film "Doutnon Abbey" takes place in 1927, a year and a half after the events shown in the finale of the series of the same name.
