Supporters of ISIS, a radical terrorist group, have threatened the third-in-line to the throne.
The fanatics posted a picture of Prince George taken on his first day of school at Thomas’s Battersea with the warning “Even the royal family will not be left alone,” on the encrypted instant messaging app Telegram.
Lyrics from a Jihadi song were also on the app which translates in English to: “When war comes with the melody of bullets, we descend on disbelief, desiring retaliation”.
The Daily Star, who first discovered the threat, also report that allegedly a picture of Thomas’s Battersea appeared with address and message “school starts early.”
ISIS also threatened Her Majesty The Queen in 2015 before the 70th anniversary of the end of World War Two.
Telegram has been considered a “breeding ground” for terrorist activity after it was used to spread propaganda during the Paris attacks.
“Now we are seeing explicit threats,” said Barry Spielman, who owns internet surveillance firm Sixgill that tracks Telegram.
“It seems that as Isis continues to lose ground in Syria and Iraq, it has stepped up its threats to hit the West.
“Our intelligence suggests that these threats are to be taken seriously.
“Over the last 12 months, we have seen both official and non-official Isis channels move over to Telegram.
“It’s an encrypted platform, making it a lot safer to communicate without being traced.
“We used to just track the Dark Web and Deep Web but now we are tracking Telegram.”
Thomas’s Battersea has been in the media a lot since the future king started school there, and not for the right reasons. Security issues were first raised when a woman filmed herself walking around the halls before Prince George was due to start there. She wanted to prove the lack of security.
That security issue was made clear when a woman was arrested a week after Prince George started school for stalking the young boy. She was released on bail and later cautioned for her actions.
