A woman was arrested after breaking into Prince George’s school in London


A 40-year-old woman has been arrested after gaining access to Prince George’s new school in London, according to the BBC.

The BBC reported on Wednesday that the woman was arrested the day before on suspicion of attempted burglary after gaining access to Thomas’ Battersea school in the city’s west side.

The woman remains in custody at a south London police station, and security arrangements at George’s school are under review following the incident.

Great Britain’s Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) on Wednesday said it is “working with the school … to review its security arrangements” after the arrest.

Some Twitter users on Wednesday speculated about the reported break-in, which came less than a week after George started at the school.

The BBC reported that George, who is four years old, was at school on Tuesday but it is thought unlikely he was present when the break-in occurred.

Battersea educates about 560 boys and girls ranging from ages four to 13, with approximately 20 students in each class.

Kensington Palace said in a statement Wednesday that it was “aware of the issue but we would not comment further on security measures.”

A MPS spokesman on Wednesday said that its officers had “attended immediately after the issue came to light” the day before.

“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.”

George is the first child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton.

William and Middleton married in 2011, and the couple is expecting their third child after George and his two-year-old sister Charlotte.

Middleton was not with William when he escorted George to his first day of school last week as she was suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum.

The condition is severe form of morning sickness that some women suffer from in the early stages of their pregnancy.
