    Default Bathroom throne and other regal fittings at Australian couple's home

    With the world's largest collection of royal memorabilia, Janet and Philip Williams have created their own House of Windsor, turning their four-bedroom family home in Woonona (south of Sydney) in Australia into a royal museum, which attracts thousands of curious visitors each year.
    Union Jack flags fill the front garden and on the porch, Charles and Camilla can be found taking the sun, hand in hand. Step inside and the royal tour continues.
    From a life-size model of the Queen (with a small corgi nipping at her toes), to rooms full of commemorative crockery and even a pair of Charles and Diana slippers, this is monarchy-mania.

    Royal flush: The throne room, built by Philip Williams

    It all began when Janet, 62 and originally from Gateshead, met the Queen on a royal visit in 1952. 'My mum bought me a royal commemorative tour mug,' she recalls. 'That started my collection - and I haven't stopped to this day.'
    The house contains more than 12,000 items - bought from markets, antique shops or eBay - and they're just the ones that Janet has counted. Seven years ago, the couple had to build a bigger house to accommodate the growing collection.

    Fit for a prince: A pair of Charles and Diana slippers

    Princess Diana - Janet's idol ('she was so beautiful') - has her own memorial room, with Elton John's Candle In The Wind playing on a loop.
    And husband Philip built the Throne Room (that's the lavatory to you and me) - complete with wooden, err, throne, purple velvet trim and a sign reminding you to Royal Flush.
