Peter Philips - The Queen's Grandson - Refused Planning Permission

The Queen's Grandson and cousin to the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry has proved lately that he is no different to everyone else when it comes to planning permission applications.

He has recently been refused permission by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to hold a horsing event on the grounds of the Palace. The 'Global Champions Tour' would bring more than thirty of the world's best riders to the West London park - however it is deemed that the spectacle would fail to 'enhance the Kensington Palace setting or the character of the area' and therefore permission has been refused.

It is also believed that the council does not want to set a precedent for future events at the Palace or disrupt the personal home of other members of the Royal family.

It's good to know that as far as planning permission applications and planning objections go - the UK monarchy aren't necessarily always given the Royal treatment...
