Police are reviewing the security at the school Prince George attends after a woman was arrested there Wednesday for attempted burglary.
George attends Thomas’ Battersea School in West London, a private preparatory school for children ages 4 to 13 that costs more than $23,000 a year, the BBC reported. The school has 560 pupils this year.
George was confirmed by Kensington Palace to be at the school on Wednesday around 2:15 p.m. when the arrest took place, as well as the previous day when the incident took place.
“Prince George will continue attending the school as normal,” Kensington Palace said, The Mirror reported.
“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 side,” Metropolitan police said, The Guardian reported.
The woman is being held at a south London police station following her arrest for breaking into the school.
George is the son of Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, and Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton. He started at the school last week.
Twitter users were mostly unphased by the incident, since Prince George wasn’t harmed in any way.
Can it be reviewed at all schools please?

…I assume that every attempted burglary at a school will now be headline news….🤔

Would this have made national news had it been at a school with non famous children? 🤔
