A man has been charged in England with sharing a photo of royal heir Prince George of Cambridge along with details about his school in a social media post prosecutors allege was meant to help would-be terrorists plan violent attacks.
Authorities have accused Husnain Rashid of putting the information about the 4-year-old son of Prince William and the former Kate Middleton on the encrypted platform Telegram.
Rashid faces two charges of preparing acts of terrorism and assisting others to commit acts of terrorism.
Husnain Rashid, 31, allegedly used messaging app Telegram to broadcast suggested targets for terror attacks, Westminster magistrates court heard this morning.
The British national, of Nelson, Lancashire, was arrested on Wednesday November 22 by officers from Lancashire Police and Counter Terrorism Policing.
He was remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on December 20.
Prosecutor Rebecca Mundy said Rashid's alleged threat included "a photograph of the young Prince George at the beginning of his school term, next to a silhouette of a jihadi fighter", according to the U.K.'s Telegraph newspaper.
Both of the those incidents were completely unconnected to today's court case. The school works with the Metropolitan Police's Royalty Protection Unit, which provides security for members of the royal family.
