Anachronisms 

When Abbey, Amy and C.J. go into a separate room to drink wine, Abbey tells the wine was a '95 wine who belonged to king Baudoin of Belgium. In fact, king Baudoin was already dead two years in '95 so he could have never owned the wine.

Character error 

Lord Marbury talks to Toby about a fine Islay whiskey but mispronounces it "iz-lay". A person of Marbury's breeding and education would most likely know that it's actually properly pronounced "eye-lah" if you are from the UK.

Lord Marbury calls the Queen "Her Royal Majesty". The Queen is always known as "Her Majesty". Her children and other royals are called "Her/His Royal Highness". The two are never mixed up.
