       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.
