Storyline

Elizabeth McGovern (Downtown Abbey) takes an in-depth look at the young American heiresses whose real life stories inspired the acclaimed TV drama "Downton Abbey." This series takes you from the late 1800s, when daughters of America's new industrial millionaires marry into the money-strapped British aristocracy, to the 20th century, when a new kind of American Princess wields power not through wealth, but through character, style, and wit. Through the decades, these women bring dramatic change to the European aristocracy and eventually the world.

Really interesting series!
5 May 2018 | by cazbetSee all my reviews

This is a really interesting, well-researched, well-made series with a few issues. First is Elizabeth McGovern's little girl voice (I always have to look up a history site to find out who she is talking about in the case of the lesser-known American women) because I can't understand and/or hear what she is saying, which can be really annoying over time. I found this as well watching Downton Abbey. Second is the repetition of scenes. I found this particularly irritating in the episode about King Edward and Wallis Simpson and the never-ending scenes of Emerald Cunard smoking a cigarette with a holder while supposedly talking to a party guest. All in all though, I have enjoyed the series very much, as well as learning about people I had never heard of.
