‘Downton Abbey’ peer in the running for House of Lords seat

He was chosen from an all-male list of 11 candidates in a poll where a total of 29 ballots were cast, with Lord Ravensdale second with nine votes.

Those running against the Earl of Carnarvon include the Earl of Effingham, a retired naval commander and former president of the Royal British Legion, and Lord Biddulph, whose election statement simple says: “Always willing to serve.”

Meanwhile in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours list, Downton Abbey star Jim Carter made an OBE.

Mr Carter, who plays Downton butler Charles Carson, said he was “delighted” with his award for services to drama.
