The woman, who was not identified, was taken into custody today after trying to access Thomas’s Battersea School on Tuesday, the Metropolitan Police Service said in a statement.
George, 4, began attending the private school in Battersea, South London, last week. He was escorted to his first day of school there by his father, Prince William, and Helen Haslem, the head of Thomas’s lower school.

"We are working with the school, which is attended by His Royal Highness Prince George, to review its security arrangements after the incident," police said. "Police were alerted and officers attended immediately after the issue came to light."
The suspect remains in custody at a South London police station.
Thomas's Battersea has approximately 550 students from a variety of backgrounds — whom George will one day lead as king. The approximately $23,000-per-year school teaches a range of traditional subjects, along with ballet, art, drama, French, music and physical education.
