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!

A couple who restrained an “abusive” woman who allegedly tried to storm the cockpit of a Jet2 plane are demanding compensation.Lorna and Clive Lucas helped hold back Chloe Haines after she was accused of a "catalogue of aggressive, abusive and dangerous behaviour" on a flight bound for Dalaman in Turkey.On Thursday, the 25-year-old was hit with an £85,000 bill and a lifetime ban from the airline.But Mrs Lucas, from Crayford, Kent, believes she and other passengers who helped restrain Ms Haines should be given a reward.She said she was “disgusted” that her only reward was a soft drink and wants a cut of the fine.Mrs Lucas, 52, told the Sun: ““They fine her, but they don’t feel they owe us any goodwill gesture because it wasn’t the airline’s fault - that was their answer to us.“I’m not happy with them at all for not recognising us. It was traumatic. That’s why I am so disappointed with Jet2."People said to me, 'They've not given you anything?' I said, 'Not even a £50 voucher off the next flight'."People say to me, 'that's absolutely disgusting'."Mrs Lucas also claims that despite a representative from the airline suggesting they would receive a goodwill gesture, they were only given phone numbers for counselling hotlines.A Jet2 spokesman added: "Our highly trained crew did a fantastic job of looking after everybody onboard the flight in very difficult circumstances, including restraining Miss Haines with the help of customers."We have already been in touch with those involved to offer our thanks and offer appropriate gestures of goodwill.“Our cabin crew are trained to deal with disruptive passenger behaviour, and although incidents such as this are very rare, it is completely unreasonable to expect them to have to deal with physically aggressive or violent passengers."

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.
