Britain’s most committed royal super fan will celebrate 70 years of the Queen’s reign in her very own “Jubilee Room”.

The home of Margaret Tyler, 78, is so crammed full of memorabilia decided to Her Majesty it is occasionally mistaken for a museum.

The grandma, from Wembley, north west London, has met the Queen four times and she has an entire room exclusively for the Queen’s jubilees.

Various bits of memorabilia, photographs and books about the Royals fill the space, which is where Margaret will be marking 70 years on the throne for the Queen.

Margaret, who has four children and four grandchildren, said: “I have met her four times and my legs were like jelly after meeting her each time – she was always so kind and sweet.

“The most recent time, I ran all the way home to tell my daughter on the phone. I was puffing and panting so hard, she thought I was having a heart attack!”

She added: “I hope Her Majesty enjoyed her day – it’s an amazing thing she has been doing for all these years.

“Whenever anything has happened, the Queen has always been there for us and gets us through it, even though she has a lot on her own shoulders at the moment!”

For more than four decades, Margaret has been decorating her home with every picture, trinket and piece of memorabilia imaginable.

She owns hundreds of books and pictures, as well as some more obscure items – such as cardboard cut-outs of Her Majesty and the Royal corgis.

Margaret admits she has no plans of slowing down her royal obsession, let alone sell anything.

She said: “My collection of memorabilia keeps growing but I’ll never sell anything even though the house is bulging at the moment.

“My house is like a museum – people have even knocked on the door to ask what time we open – someone even asked if I am a member of the Royal Family myself!

“It’s just what I do – I think about the Royals all the time and I’ll talk about the Queen to anyone who will listen.”

Margaret grew up a single child alongside two royalist parents, and said she began to adopt her love for the British monarchy from a young age.

She was just eight when Queen Elizabeth II was first coronated – and recalled being “broken-hearted” when her father wouldn’t buy a TV so she could watch.

The Queen became the first British monarch in history to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee today.

On her 78th birthday on February 1, Margaret took a trip to one of her favorite places – a royal memorabilia shop – and picked up several new items.

But she doesn’t even have to buy everything herself now – she says people in her area know who she is and drop memorabilia items on her doorstep because they know how much she appreciates them.

“I don’t ever sell anything – I just can’t.

“I look after it all and I always want more even though my house is bulging at the moment.

“I spent yesterday with my children, and I was thinking and talking about The Queen while sat in my Jubilee room.

“It was a day of remembering everything amazing she has done.”
