Officers from Scotland Yard's Counter Terrorism Command have launched an investigation and police are understood to be examining if the Westminster and Kensington Palace came from the same source.

British police are investigating a package reportedly addressed to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as a "racist hate crime".

"Police are investigating after a package containing a substance was delivered to St. James's Palace on Monday, February 12", a Metropolitan Police spokesperson said of the case.

But analysis of the powder found that it was harmless.

One day later, a parcel containing a similarly harmless white powder was sent to a member of Parliament-police are investigating a possible connection between the incidents.


Prince Harry and Ms. Markle made global news by announcing their upcoming marriage ceremony that is due to take place in May.

A letter addressed to the royal and his actress fiancee and claiming to containing the infectious disease in a white powder form was sent to their Kensington Palace residence on 12 February (18). The Evening Standard newspaper says it contained a racist message. No arrests have been made and inquiries are ongoing.

Contacted by AFP, Prince Harry's press service at Kensington Palace declined to comment on the report.

The incident has also raised concerns about security arrangements at the Royal wedding on May 19.

Security measures already in place ensured that the package was intercepted before it reached the royal couple.
