Britain’s Prince George started school on Thursday but without his pregnant mother Kate to support him because she was suffering from severe morning sickness.

British police have cautioned a woman over an incident at a London primary school attended by Prince George, the great-grandson of Queen Elizabeth.

The four-year-old, third-in-line to the UK throne and son of Prince William and his wife Kate, started on September 6 at Thomas's Battersea, a private school in southwest London. The event was widely publicised in Britain and beyond.

On September 13, police said a woman had been arrested on suspicion of burglary after she gained access to the school. Police gave few details about the incident and the woman was later released.

A caution is a formal warning by police that stops short of being a criminal conviction.
