The first pictures from the Downton Abbey Christmas special have been released.
Set six months after the recently completed series four, the special episode will focus on Rose's (Lily James) 'coming out' at Buckingham Palace, meaning that the family and their servants are staying at their residence in London.
Lady Rose is seen in one image wearing a white dress and headpiece as she curtseys for King George V and Queen Mary.
Shirley MacLaine has also reprised her role as Cora's mother Martha Levinson.
She makes the journey from New York to mark the occasion and is joined by her playboy son Harold, represented by highly-anticipated guest star Paul Giamatti.
The episode, which takes place during the summer, was filmed in a number of locations in London and the south, with Lancaster House standing in for Buckingham Palace. »
