If you’re lamenting the end of Downton Abbey, fear not, Daz is here to “lighten the load” ! Taking a light hearted look at which characters the nation most resembles, it seems that Lady Mary’s personality double is probably only an armchair away.
Daz, has revealed that a whopping two thirds of us display the characteristics of Lady Mary, which means that, as a nation, we’re a progressive bunch who believe in tradition but are all for change if it improves the situation.
Lady Mary types embrace innovation and are always looking for new ways to use technology, but do 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.
Aside from Lady Mary, 15% of us share characteristics of the Earl of Grantham, being stable, dependable and intelligent and liking a crisp white shirt to wear every day. Only a mere 10% of us see ourselves at the heart of the home like Mrs Patmore; satisfied with where we are, needing clean tea towels every day and using technology only when necessary.
Which one 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

Vests and shirts make up the bulk of their laundry, to keep them looking sharply dressed
Dowager Countess of Grantham: 3%

They don’t do the laundry. Ever.
Ambitious, driven and successful they will do whatever it takes to help family get ahead
