London police say a woman has been arrested on suspicion of attempted burglary near the London school attended by 4-year-old Prince George after a security incident at the school, the AP reports. Police said Wednesday the 40-year-old woman was arrested after an individual gained access to the Thomas's Battersea School in south London on Tuesday, and CNN reports that the woman allegedly attempted to break in to the school. Police did not provide more details. The woman is being questioned and has not been charged or identified. George, son of Prince William and his wife Kate, started school last week. London's Metropolitan Police say the force is working with the school to review its security arrangements. Police are part of the security measure in place to protect George, who is third in line to the throne behind William and Prince Charles. (Read more Prince George of Cambridge stories.)
