British royal super-fan - level 3

With just a few weeks to go until the arrival of royal baby number two, Britain's royal super-fan is eagerly awaiting to see if it’s a boy or a girl. Yep, Margaret Tyler’s home is a shrine to the royal family and she can't wait to start expanding her collection.

“I’m beyond excitement, I think. It seems to be my last thought at night and my first thought in the morning, you know… It's not that long now – it's crept up after Christmas. It seems to whizz past and you know, everybody's getting very excited as well.”

Margaret says she’s had guests from across the world all keen to spend at least one night surrounded by all things royal.

Margaret started collecting in 1977 at the year of the Queen's Silver Jubilee. Her collection is now insured for 40,000 pounds.

Difficult words: eagerly (in an excited way), shrine (a place that people visit and respect because it is connected with a famous person), silver jubilee (the twenty-fifth anniversary of an important event), creep up (to happen suddenly), whizz past (to pass by quickly).
