Security is being reviewed at Prince George’s primary school in London after a 40-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of attempted burglary.
The four-year-old son of Prince William and Kate Middleton started last week at Thomas’s Battersea, a private school in southwest London, with his first day receiving wide media coverage in Britain and beyond.
Prince George is understood not to have been at the school at the time of the incident on Tuesday.
The woman remains in custody after being arrested on Wednesday.
“The arrest at 14:15hrs on Wednesday, 13 September relates to an incident at Thomas’ Battersea School on Tuesday, 12 September when an individual gained access to its premises,” a police spokesman said.
“The arrested woman was taken to a south London police station where she remains in custody.
“We are working with the school, which is attended by His Royal Highness Prince George, to review its security arrangements after the incident.
“Police were alerted and officers attended immediately after the issue came to light.
“Police are part of the protective security arrangements for the Prince and we will continue to work closely with the school, which is responsible for building security on its site.”
