A terror suspect has been accused of encouraging fanatics to attack Prince George at his primary school.

Husnain Rashid allegedly sent a disturbing message to his Telegram contacts showing the silhouette of an Isis fighter next to the four-year-old prince.

The 31-year-old is also accused of calling for attacks on the Jewish community, and on British sports stadiums, in a series of encrypted messages before November 22.

Westminster Magistrates Court also heard that Rashid wanted to leave the UK and fight for Isis in Syria.

He appeared at court today charged with preparing to commit terrorist acts, and one count of assisting others to commit acts of terror.

Rashid, dressed in a grey prison-issue pullover and trousers, spoke only to identify himself during the brief hearing, and to plead not guilty to the two charges against him.

Describing one of the messages Rashid was charged for sending, prosecutor Rebecca Mundy said: ‘There was a photo of the young Prince George at the beginning of the school term next to a silhouette of an Isis fighter.’

The image included the address for St Thomas’s in Battersea – the young prince’s school – and had text which read: ‘Even the Royal Family won’t be left alone’.

Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot said: ‘I’m sending this case to the Central Criminal Court, these are indictable-only matters. You will be there on the 20 December.’

Rashid, from Nelson in Lancashire, was remanded in custody ahead of his hearing at the Old Bailey later this month.
