"If the Crawley family of Downton Abbey were American, they'd summer at Newport,” wrote Associated Press contributor Michelle R. Smith. Now is your chance to welcome Summer in Newport with Lady Carnarvon of Downton Abbey's unforgettable Highclere Castle. The Preservation Society and Lady Carnarvon offer a day full of royal experiences on June 23. From a lovely luncheon to an exclusive champagne adorned conversation at Rosecliff—plus a virtual hour lecture option—you'll spend the day sharing and celebrating with Lady Carnarvon during her Newport visit.
