The four-year-old, who began at Thomas’s Battersea in south London last week, was driven through a side entrance in a black Range Rover.

The 4x4 was tailed by a second Range Rover which appeared to be driven by a plain-clothes officer as police reviewed the school’s security following the scare.

The suspect was detained by undercover police officers yesterday in the grounds of the £18,000-a-year school. One eyewitness, who was sitting in a nearby restaurant, told the Daily Mail: “She was just sitting there really quietly with two men in ordinary clothes either side of her.

“She was completely calm and passive. She was completely unfazed.”

The prince is attending reception classes on a half-day basis and is not thought to have been there at the time.

A Met spokesman said: “We are working with the school to review its security arrangements after the incident.”

Thomas’s Battersea educates 560 boys and girls aged from four to 13. Former pupils include supermodel Cara Delevingne and Florence and the Machine vocalist Florence Welch.
