“No tongues” mean something different obviously in American than in England! It seems to mean no speaking about her visit, as opposed to not use tongue when kissing her, which, who could imagine slipping the Princess the tongue? Especially that Princee Kate was pregnant when visiting Downton Abbey? Either way, the cast of Downton Abbey was glad that the Princess was thrilled that Downton Abbey was one place that she visited, and that she confessed it was one of her favorite shows.
According to the Inquisitr, the cast of Downton Abbey happy was thrilled that Princess Kate visited the set on the last season. Laura Carmichael was thrilled with the visit, and said that the Princess was so lovely and so normal. Photos were taken, and the whole cast was so lit about by the royal visit.
