It's safe to say Kate Middleton and Prince William are the most-watched couple in the world. Now word from the U.K. is the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are undertaking some measures to increase their level of privacy -- just before the Royal heir is born.

According to the Mirror, the duo are undertaking major renovations that will see security upgraded at their supposed new home, Anmer Hall. The home is located on the Queen's Sandringham estate (this is the space where Prince Charles supposedly carried out his affair with Camilla Parker Bowles). The online paper says consent has been given to convert some rooms into spaces that will house police guards.

The main gate to the property will be moved to restrict public access, speculates U.K.'s edition of Marie Claire. And E! Online is reporting additional shrubs and large trees will be planted around the 10-bedroom home to decrease the view of the property.

It makes sense the Royal couple would upgrade their protection before the future prince or princess is born in July. Over the past two years, the couple have been subject to several privacy breaches, including the Kate Middleton bathing topless scandal, an
