A British man accused of posting a picture of four-year-old Prince George and the address of his London school as part of a series of possible targets for Islamist militants will face trial from April 30.

Husnain Rashid, 31, is accused of posting information on the Telegram messaging service to encourage jihadis to carry out attacks, along with information to help them with possible targets such as sports venues.

The post included the address of his school in southwest London which George started attending in September and was accompanied with the caption "even the royal family will not be left alone", a court heard earlier this month.

He appeared at London's Old Bailey central criminal court on Wednesday charged with preparing acts of terrorism, and was remanded in custody.

His four-week trial will take place at Woolwich Crown Court in south London.
