Prince William and Duchess Catherine Put in New Security Measures to Protect George and Charlotte
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have recruited a team of gardeners to plant a row of native conifer trees along the Palace in central London so that their home will be shielded from onlookers and paparazzi.
The conifers can grow to an impressive 40 feet and, according to Hello magazine, will create a wall on the western side of the palace where William and Catherine's residence is located.
The family is relocating to the capital so that Prince George can start school in the autumn.

The second-in-line-to-the-throne is leaving his job as a helicopter pilot at East Anglian Air Ambulance to fulfill more royal and philanthropic duties. Young George is believed to be starting a school nearby, possibly Hill House near Sloane Square, the same one Prince Charles attended.
It's been reported that the Duke has also requested a no-fly zone around the royal residence.
Meanwhile, the palace previously issued a legal warning, on behalf of the royal couple, against a photographer whom they claimed was "harassing" their son in London.
The palace went on to say in a statement released to the press: "The warm-hearted and understandable interest in the royal family and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge needs to be balanced with their right to a private family life. This is especially important for a family with very young children."
The royal couple recently attended the 2017 BAFTA Awards in the capital.
