A package containing white powder (later discovered to be harmless) and also allegedly a racist communication was intercepted by security procedures at St. James's Palace last week.
Scotland Yard has launched an investigation after a letter that was addressed to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry was found to contain a white powder, apparently coupled with a racist message directed at the couple.
The package, addressed to Prince Harry and his fiancée, led to a security scare early last week at St. James’s Palace, with specialists from the Metropolitan Police’s counter-terror command rushed in to test whether the powder might be the deadly poison anthrax. Analysis of the powder found that it was harmless.
Security measures already in place ensured that the package was intercepted before it reached the royal couple. Meghan, 36, and Harry, 33, have reportedly been informed, according to the Evening Standard.
