A week after Prince George started attending Thomas’s London Day School in Battersea, a suspected stalker, according to The Mail Online, was arrested for attempting to break into the school on Tuesday afternoon. The suspect, a 40-year-old woman, was apprehended Wednesday on suspicion of attempted burglary.

Prince William's son attended classes during that day, but it was believed he was no longer in the school when the suspect attempted the unauthorized access. According to the report, Prince George, as a new starter, leaves the school at lunchtime.

The report further said that Prince William and Kate Middleton were informed of the incident and it did not prevent the third in line to the British throne to attend class the day after the woman was arrested.

Security arrangements review

In light of what has transpired, authorities were prompted to review security arrangements at Thomas’s Battersea, where a total of 560 boys and girls, aged 4-13 attend classes. The police are now working with the school to do just that following the arrest.

Keeping Prince George’s safe and secure while he is at school includes royal protection officers who keep watch on him at all times, according to Metro News. The Police also said that as part of the protective security arrangements for the Prince they would continue to work closely with the school, which is responsible for making their building secure.

One security expert said the news of an attempted break in is not surprising considering that the school “is not a fortress.”

Suspect posed as legitimate visitor

Meanwhile, the 40-year-old woman arrested after would to break into Thomas’s Battersea School is now in custody at a south London police station.

According to accounts of the incident, she was able to briefly talk her way into the building posing as a legitimate visitor the day before she was arrested.

It was said that school staff challenged the woman, but she was able to escape.

The suspect returned the next day however and was spotted again loitering nearby as she sat outside a restaurant in Battersea Square. This led to her arrest on suspicion of attempted burglary.

Inquiry as to motive

Although the woman was apprehended under suspicion of attempted burglary, Mail Online reported that police inquiry would also include whether she is ‘fixated’ with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince George.

Thomas’s Battersea School has no official statement on the incident as the matter is being investigated now by the authorities.
