Isis extremists have threatened to kill Prince George in messages shared on an encrypted instant messaging app.
Sources claim members of the terrorist group shared pictures of George next to his new school, Thomas’s Battersea, in south London, captioned: “School starts early”.
The images were sent via the online instant messaging app Telegram, which experts say has become a favourite among Islamic extremists over the past year, the Daily Express reported.
Messages sent via Telegram are encrypted and keep the user’s location hidden.
British intelligence has been monitoring the anonymous messaging service in an effort to stop potential terror attacks in the UK.
The post also included Arabic words, taken from a jihadi song, translated by the Daily Express as: “when war comes with the melody of bullets, we descend on disbelief, desiring retaliation”.
Concerns have been raised about the prince’s security in recent months, following a security breach which saw local resident Sarah Burnett-Moore filmed herself walking into the school off the streets unchecked.
Just a few weeks later, another woman was arrested on suspicion of attempted burglary, leading to the Metropolitan Police reviewing the school’s security measures.
The £17,600-a-year school is believed to have a new safety regime in place now, aimed at ensuring the prince remains safe at all times.
