'Racist' white powder letter sent to Prince Harry, Meghan Markle

Scotland Yard is investigating after a letter containing white powder purported to be anthrax was sent to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Chemical experts were drafted in to analyse the substance and counter-terror police are now investigating, London's Evening Standard reported today. Other UK media reports said the package also contained a racist letter.

The Metropolitan Police force says "a package containing a substance" was delivered to St. James's Palace, where Harry has his office, on February 12. Officers are looking into whether or not the two packages are linked.

Prince Harry and his fiancee, American actress Meghan Markle, have released more details about their May 19 wedding, revealing that the event will include a carriage ride through Windsor so they can share the big day with the public.

A letter, addressed to the couple at Kensington Palace, caused a security scare after being intercepted before it reached them.

While Markle, who is biracial, has faced racist backlash by those who are unhappy she will soon be a part of royal family, this is the first serious threat she has received since her engagement to Prince Harry was announced last November.

The following day, a second, similar letter was sent to the office of Home Secretary Amber Rudd at the Houses of Parliament and the substance was also found to be non-harmful.

The package was address to the couple at Kensington Palace.

The Met confirmed in a statement that it was investigating the incident.

"His girlfriend, Meghan Markle, has been subject to a wave of abuse and harassment".
