Prince George was the target of a possible terrorist attack that was thankfully never carried out! The ISIS supporter has admitted his guilt, and what he’s said is terrifying.
A British ISIS supporter, who called for jihadis to attack British royal Prince George, 4, pleaded guilty to terrorism offenses on May 31, according to CNN. Husnain Rashid, 32, was two weeks into his trial at Woolwich Crown Court in London when he came clean. Husnain admitted he had carried out multiple terror offenses, including engaging in conduct in preparation for terrorist acts and encouraging terrorism. He was arrested in November and, until now, he had maintained his innocence.
Husnain wrote messages online encouraging militants to carry out attacks, CNN reports. He even posted a picture of Prince George, who’s third in line to the throne, next to a superimposed silhouette of a jihadi fighter, according to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS). In addition, he gave the full address of the little royal’s school, which is located in southwest London. And if that’s not chilling enough, he wrote, “even the royal family will not be left alone.”
Between October 2016 and November 2017, Husnain also encouraged attacks on multiple other targets including soccer stadiums, British Army bases, shopping centers, and Jewish communities. In addition, he suggested things such as injecting poison into supermarket ice creams, Britain’s Press Association reported. Husnain will be sentenced on June 28, and Judge Andrew Lees said the trial had heard the “most disturbing allegations.” He said a very lengthy prison sentence for Husnain was “inevitable” and a life sentence would be considered, according to PA.
An ISIS supporter planned an attack against the UK’s Prince George and that’s by far the most disgusting thing I’ve read today. He’s four years old and people were trying to kill him. This world is disgusting.

Plotting to harm an innocent defenseless child? I’m at loss for words. It’s sickening. Prince George is 4 years old for gods sake. He’s a baby. How repulsive can you be to make such horrid plans. This ISIS supporter clearly has mental issues going on in his state of mind.

Prince George started school at Thomas’s Battersea in London in September 2017. Prince William, 35, accompanied his son to his first day of school, which is about a 30-minute drive from Kensington Palace. William and Kate are also proud parents to 3-year-old Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, who was born on April 23. Charlotte began attending nursery school in January.
Aside from Louis, William and Kate last stepped out with their children at Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s royal wedding on May 19. George and Charlotte both had roles in the ceremony, as George was a pageboy and Charlotte was a bridesmaid.
