A 40-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of attempted burglary after allegedly gaining access to Prince George’s school.

Security arrangements will be reviewed at Thomas’ Battersea School, after someone gained access on Tuesday at 14:15 BST, according to Scotland Yard.

Police are "working with the school... to review its security arrangements" following the arrest, the Met said.

A Met spokesperson said that officers ‘immediately’ attended the scene 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," they said.

The 40-year-old woman remains in custody at a south London police station.

The young royal commenced his schooling days at the upper-class preparatory school on 7 September this year.

The school facilitates 560 boys and girls aged from four to 13.

Kensington Palace said it was "aware of the issue but we would not comment further on security measures".
