Did You Know?
When Patrick Gordon tells Lady Edith about his time in Canada after the Titanic sank, he mentions having been part of "Princess Pat's regiment". The regiment he's refering to is the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry. It was named in honour of Princess Patricia of Connaught, a granddaughter of Queen Victoria and a very popular public figure in Canada. Oddly enough, she would go on to marry Sir Alexander Ramsay in 1919, thus becoming Lady Patricia Ramsay and getting the rank of an Earl's daughter, the same than Lord Grantham's daughters. See more

I have business in London.
Well, judging by your expression, your business doesn't seem to be too prosperous.
The trick of business is to mind your own.
