It’s been an eventful start to school life for young Prince George, who had just finished his first week at London’s exclusive Thomas’s Battersea private school when local police were called to the scene.
A 40-year-old woman was arrested for allegedly breaking in during school hours, and authorities are now working with the establishment to review their security arrangements.
It’s enough to make any parent’s skin crawl, but Prince William is focusing on the positives.
Speaking to patients at Aintree University Hospital yesterday, the second in line for the throne said, “It’s been an interesting week”.
But despite the police drama, Wills said that George has actually been settling into school life well.
“We are all seeing how long that lasts before he doesn’t want to go!” he said, “George has been really easy. He hasn’t said, ‘Have I got to do this for the rest of my life?’”
Wills added that George isn’t alone in his confidence and that most of the commotion at the school gate was actually coming from the parents!
“Most of the parents were in floods of tears. The kids were all fine,” he said.
Sources have added that after the scare, Wills and Kate are now more committed to doing the school run as often as they can.
George’s school is located around six kilometres from the family’s Kensington Palace home, with the trip taking around half an hour in peak traffic.
A Kensington Palace spokesperson issued a statement at the time of the school break in, revealing: "We are aware of this issue but won't comment on security matters."
