First pic­ture of the woman ac­cused of royal stalk­ing

Irish Daily Mail - - News - By Andy Dolan

THIS is the woman ar­rested af­ter talk­ing her way into Prince Ge­orge’s school.

Louise Chantry, an unem­ployed holis­tic healer, was fix­ated on Bri­tain’s royal fam­ily – and Kate and Wil­liam in par­tic­u­lar – her mother claimed yes­ter­day.

Chantry, 40, is pic­tured smil­ing on her wed­ding day, how­ever, she walked out on her hus­band last year af­ter months of rows, her neigh­bours said.

Po­lice ar­rested her on Wed­nes­day af­ter she al­legedly turned up twice in 24 hours at Thomas’s London Day School.

Prince Ge­orge was not in the build­ing on ei­ther oc­ca­sion.

She is un­der­stood to have suf­fered a break­down in re­cent months and has been di­ag­nosed with clin­i­cal de­pres­sion. Her mother, Rhona Craw­ford, 75, told an English news­pa­per that her daugh­ter ‘just loves the royal fam­ily and loves kids’.

She added: ‘She wouldn’t have done any harm to Ge­orge. He would have been safe with her.’

She said her daugh­ter es­pe­cially adored the fu­ture king’s par­ents as they ‘rep­re­sent the ideal fam­ily life she would like to have’.

‘[Louise has] been un­der a lot of stress. She has no chil­dren her­self. She wants sta­bil­ity, a home she is happy in. I’m very sad this has hap­pened, it’s a hor­ri­ble in­ci­dent.’

Chantry and her hus­band David’s six-year mar­riage col­lapsed last year.

Neigh­bours re­called once see­ing her shout­ing at Mr Chantry in the street, be­fore she left the mar­i­tal home, and was not seen back there.
