First pic­ture of the woman ac­cused of stalk­ing Ge­orge

Scottish Daily Mail - - Weekender - By Andy Dolan

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

Louise Chantry, an unem­ployed holis­tic healer, was fix­ated on the Royal Fam­ily – and Kate and Wil­liam in par­tic­u­lar – her mother claimed yes­ter­day.

Chantry, 40, is pic­tured smil­ing on her wed­ding day, but walked out on hus­band David Chantry, 42, last year af­ter months of rows, neigh­bours said.

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

She is un­der­stood to have suf­fered a men­tal break­down in re­cent months and had been di­ag­nosed with clin­i­cal de­pres­sion.

Her mother, Rhona Craw­ford, 75, from Bath, Som­er­set, told The Sun her daugh­ter ‘just loves the Royal Fam­ily and loves kids’. She added: ‘She wouldn’t

‘She has been un­der a lot of stress’

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, an IT sales man­ager, lived to­gether in Ang­mer­ing, West Sus­sex, un­til their mar­riage col­lapsed af­ter six years.

Neigh­bours re­called once see­ing her shout­ing at Mr Chantry in the street, be­fore she left the mar­i­tal home with­out a trace.

One told MailOn­line: ‘Louise and David used to have these ter­ri­ble rows. She would be shout­ing and yelling at him. Ev­ery­one could hear it. She re­ally gave it him and then she left.’

Another neigh­bour added: ‘They were a quiet cou­ple, they didn’t re­ally mix with other peo­ple in the street. But you could hear them row­ing. It wasn’t very nice.’

Chantry was ar­rested on Wed­nes­day af­ter be­ing spot­ted loi­ter­ing out­side the £18,000-a-year prep school – 24 hours af­ter pos­ing as a vis­i­tor to gain en­try. On that oc­ca­sion she es­caped when chal­lenged by staff.

Prince Ge­orge was not in the build­ing on ei­ther oc­ca­sion.
