“We are working with the school, which is attended by His Royal Highness Prince George, to review its security arrangements after the incident,” the statement added.

A Kensington Palace spokesperson issued a statement, revealing: "We are aware of this issue but won't comment on security matters."

George’s school is located around six kilometres from the family’s Kensington Palace home, with sources saying the trip takes half an hour in peak traffic.

"There was one other parent who had more of an issue with their children - so I was quite pleased I wasn't the one," Prince William said of his first school run with George last week.
