Teenager jailed for accusing Prince Harry of being a “race traitor”

A teenager who accused Prince Harry of being a “race traitor” in an online post has been jailed.

19-year-old Michal Szewczuk has been jailed for four years and three months for the post which included an image of the Duke of Sussex with a gun to his head, against a blood-spattered background and with a swastika symbol.

The teenager and university student was sentenced at the Old Bailey, with Judge Rebecca Poulet QC warning that the image in the post “encourages terrorism”.

The image was posted to a far-right social media site in August 2018, just months after Prine Harry married Meghan Markle, who is mixed-race.
