The four-year-old prince started at the £18,000-a-year preparatory school on 7 September.

It educates 560 boys and girls aged from four to 13, with around 20 pupils in each class.

George was at school on Tuesday but it is thought unlikely he was there at the time of the break-in.

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