We’re A Nation Of Lady Mary’s….

I love Downton Abbey but I have to be honest and say that I was a (very) latecomer to the series and had only started watching just before the last series aired, I wish I had watched from the very start. Luckily for me, I could start right from the very beginning on the ITV Hub. I managed to get up to date just in time for the start of the final series. I laughed, I loved, I cried and I cried some more.

Christmas Day saw the final ever episode of Downton and what an episode it was. I will certainly miss my Sunday night fix and I’m sure many others will too. If like me and you’re mourning the end of the series, fear not, Daz has come to the rescue and want to “lighten the load”. Recently they took a light-hearted look at which Downton characters the nation most resembles, it would seem that more than half of us share Lady Mary’s personality and display some of her traits too – We’re a nation who believe in tradition but are all for change if it improves the situation.

Lady Mary types like to embrace innovation and are always looking for new ways to use technology, but they believe in maintaining a work, life balance. They generally look for quick and easy solutions to everyday tasks, like laundry. Believing themselves to be loyal, elegant and passionate, having clean, perfectly pressed underwear that looks and smells good is a top priority.

I think I am definitely a Lady Mary too. I’m a traditionalist but a firm believer in moving with the times – Who do you identify with?

* Lady Mary: 64%

  • Loyal, elegant and passionate the Lady Mary’s are the next generation redefining tradition
  • Great smelling, perfectly pressed underwear makes them happiest

* Earl of Grantham: 15%

  • Stable, dependable and intelligent, they think of themselves as the head of the family
  • Crisp, white, wrinkle-free shirts are their laundry priority

* Mrs Patmore: 10%

  • Down to earth, caring and forgiving, Mrs Patmore’s are the carers of the family and run the household
  • Clean tea towels with no stains insight are key

* Branson: 4%

  • Moral, reserved and sceptical. They are traditional through and through
  • Vests and shirts make up the bulk of their laundry, to keep them looking sharply dressed

* Dowager Countess of Grantham: 3%

  • Proper, traditional and practical they prefer not to work unless they have to
  • They don’t do the laundry. Ever.

* Thomas: 3%

  • Ambitious, driven and successful they will do whatever it takes to help family get ahead
  • Most likely suited and booted, they prefer to do washing as little as possible
