每周一报:Record-breaking royal 英女王伊丽莎白二世破在位记录

00:00

A historic day that one of the UK's biggest royal fans has been looking forward to.

  Queen Elizabeth II has now overtaken Queen Victoria as the UK's longest-serving monarch. Victoria was on the throne for 63 years, seven months and two days.

  Margaret Tyler, the self-styled 'queen of royal memorabilia', has turned her house into a shrine to Britain's royals.

  Each room is dedicated to a member of the family. But Queen Elizabeth has two rooms all to herself.

  这个历史性的日子可着实让一位英国王室铁杆迷期盼已久啊。

  英女王伊丽莎白二世现已打破她的曾曾祖母维多利亚女王在位63年零216天的纪录,成为英国历史上在位时间最长的君主。

  玛格丽特. 泰勒(Margaret Tyler),自封为“王室收藏品女王“,将她的房子变成了一个纪念英国王室的圣地。

  在泰勒家中,每间屋子都会献给一位王室成员。不过女王伊丽莎白二世有两间属于她的房间。
