Royal aides have submitted planning permission for a "major development" on the Queen's Sandringham Estate in Norfolk.

The local council is considering plans which would convert wood stores at Anmer Hall into accommodation and extend a garage block.

The application follows reports that Queen is preparing to give Grade II-listed Anmer Hall to Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge as they prepare for the arrival of their first child.
