The threat was taken seriously,, but there were no attempts done after the message was found out.
Millions of royal fans sent their concern and love to the royal family after the planned assassination did not push through.
Prince George’s life is especially important as he is the 4th-in-line to the throne and will become King after his father, Prince William.
Queen Elizabeth has also gone through some horrific assassination attempts on her life. The earliest one was back in 1981. The perpetrator was apprehended after he shot at the Queen with the bullet almost grazing the Queen.
He was sentenced to three years in jail and was sent to Australia after his jail time. He then again plotted the Queen’s assassination in 1995 but was caught early by the police. In 1997 the perpetrator killed himself after killing his wife and son.
The Queen’s children have also been targeted in the past. In 1994 Prince Charles was attending the event Australia Day where 2 blank bullets were fired at the Prince.
Later on, the perpetrator had no plans to kill Prince Charles but only to send a message regarding Cambodian immigrants in Australia being locked up.
Prince Charles’s little sister, Princess Anne, had the unfortunate even of almost getting kidnapped. The Princess with her husband and daughter, were going back home from an event when they were stopped by the ‘kidnapper’ who asked Princess Anne to step out of the car.
The Princess was said to have replied, ‘I bloody think not!’ and the Princess’s chauffer and bodyguard stopped the attempted kidnapping.
