British royal super-fan - level 2
Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, is pregnant, and there are just a few weeks left until the birth. This news is about a super-fan who is really excited about the second royal baby.
The fan, who is an old lady, says that the baby is her first thought in the morning and her last thought in the evening. She can’t wait to see if it’s a girl or a boy.
The fan has a large collection of all things royal – from books, posters, pillows to crockery. She started collecting in 1977 at the year of the Queen’s Silver Jubilee. She insured her collection for 40,000 pounds.
Difficult words: crockery (plates, dishes, cups and other similar things), silver jubilee (the twenty-fifth anniversary/“birthday” of an important event), insure (when you insure something, you get money if it breaks).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
