New details have emerged about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s renovation plans at Frogmore Cottage. The royal couple moved into their Windsor residence in April after extensive works were carried out inside, but now they are turning their attention to the garden of the property.Prince Harry and Meghan have altered plans for their new garden after changing their mind on the design subsequent to receiving the council’s permission. They are said to have undertaken external landscaping works in the garden using a different design to the one approved by the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Council, and are now seeking retrospective planning permission.Prince Harry and Meghan are continuing work at Frogmore CottageIan Ratcliffe, project manager at the Royal Household, said in a letter to the council's planning team, obtained by the Daily Mail: "This application has been submitted following a material change to elements of grant of planning consent. We consider that national security could be compromised if public access is given to the plans, other drawings and documents relating to this project, either in the offices of the council or on the council website where they could be viewed and copied. Furthermore, copies of the plans and other documents should not be sent to statutory consultees."RELATED: Prince Harry and Meghan's renovation costs revealedThe letter continued: "Therefore, for reasons of national security, we would appreciate if this application could be treated as confidential and not be allowed to enter the public domain awing to the nature of the works and their location. And (we) would re-affirm that this application is submitted on the basis that the accompanying plans, drawings and other documents are not released into the public domain either in your offices or on your website."The royal couple moved into the property shortly before the birth of Archie HarrisonA retrospective planning application is submitted to the council if a change is made to a property that requires planning permission and approval was not sought. Even though the work has already been carried out, it doesn’t mean that consent will automatically be granted, and if the application is refused, it could mean that the couple would be required to reverse any changes they have made.GALLERY: The sweet personal touches in royal homesPrince Harry and Meghan’s plans are said to include the planting of fast-growing shrubs and trees to increase privacy at their home, as well as the installation of security lights. The garden landscaping project could also see the couple add a badminton or tennis court at their Windsor home, which would be ideal for any visits from Meghan’s close friend Serena Williams, who recently joked that her daughter Olympia could be giving baby Archie tennis lessons as they grow up.Make sure you never miss a ROYAL story!

The president says if Democratic congresswomen criticize the US, they should go elsewhere. But mocking America is one of his own favorite pastimes. At a campaign rally in North Carolina on Wednesday, the president’s attacks against four progressive congresswomen of color culminated in his most overt attack yet. Referring to Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib as “hate-filled extremists”, he continued his tirade to the delight of his supporters. “They’re always telling us how to run it, how to do this, how to do that. You know what? If they don’t love it, tell ’em to leave it,” Trump said to the crowd, who soon erupted into a chant of “ send her back”. Yet Trump himself has repeatedly denigrated and criticized America, perhaps more so than any other presidential candidate in recent memory. If he holds himself to his own standards, perhaps it’s time for him to leave and “go back home”? Here are some examples of Trump’s attacks on the US. Make America great again A longtime critic of Obama, Trump has said he came upon his famed slogan the day his predecessor was elected to his second term. The Maga slogan implied that America was no longer great, something he also repeatedly and explicitly stated in much starker terms in the years before and during his run. Speaking to the Washington Post in 2017, he said: I looked at the many types of illness our country had, and whether it’s at the border, whether it’s security, whether it’s law and order or lack of law and order. Crippled America Trump’s 2015 book, Crippled America, was rife with critical quotes, referring to the country as “this mess” and “Uncle Sucker”, among other things, and took great pains to point out just how weak we had become. The idea of American Greatness, of our country as the leader of the free and unfree world, has vanished … I couldn’t stand to see what was happening to our great country. This mess calls for leadership in the worst way. American carnage On the day he took office in 2017, Trump painted a picture of America as a dystopian nightmare. Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation; an education system flush with cash but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of knowledge; and the crime and gangs and drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential. This American carnage stops right here and stops right now. Laughing stock The idea that criticizing the country is grounds for being dismissed from it would be news to the Donald Trump of the Obama years, when he described our collective humiliation many dozens of times. Stretching back to 2011, he regularly tweeted about which countries and other political bodies were laughing at us and Obama, from Opec to “the mullahs”, Sudan, and, most frequently, China and Vladimir Putin. Lots of killers When asked during an interview with Bill O’Reilly in 2017 about his praise for Putin, Trump said America wasn’t much better. But was Putin was “a killer”, O’Reilly said. Trump replied: There are a lot of killers. You think our country’s so innocent? Infrastructure Trump has not only often referred to the symbolic collapse of America, he’s also pointed out its literal state of disrepair. His speech to the 2016 Republican national convention was a laundry list of things that he found shameful about the country, including our infrastructure. He told the crowd: Our roads and bridges are falling apart, our airports are in third-world condition.

The police who keep watch over the town of 16,000 raffled off free cameras in a partnership with the camera manufacturer. Critics also say Ring, a subsidiary of Amazon, appears to be marketing its cameras by stirring up fear of crime at a time when it's decreasing. "Amazon is profiting off of fear," said Chris Gilliard, an English professor at Michigan's Macomb Community College and a prominent critic of Ring and other technology that he says can reinforce race barriers.
