Big changes are coming Prince William and Kate Middleton's way. And no, we're not referring to a certain bundle of joy.

Although the soon-to-be added family member is surely a factor in some serious renovations that will be be taking place at the royal couple's future country retreat.

According to the U.K.'s The Telegraph, a garden room will be designed for Anmer Hall, which is located two miles from Queen Elizabeth's Sandringham Estate in Norfolk.

The new addition will be built on the side of the kitchen and will feature a covered patio to give the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge more privacy.

Other modifications that will be made include the planting of extra trees to keep the house and its royal occupants from public view as well as the rerouting of the mansion's main driveway.

A wood store will also be converted into a sitting room and lavatory, while two berths of a four-block garage will be turned into an "equipment room," possibly for police protection officers.

Last month a request to make such changes was approved, a council spokesman for the Borough Council of King's Lynn and West Norfolk confirmed to E! News.
