On Thursday, it was revealed that Scotland Yard is conducting an investigation after a letter containing white powder and an allegedly racist message was sent to the engaged twosome. It’s said the Metropolitan Police’s counter-terrorism unit was called after the troubling missive was sent to St. James’s Palace on February 12.
While there was an initial concern that the letter may’ve contained anthrax, law enforcers have since informed E! News that the powder was deemed “non-suspicious.” Phew.
Per the Evening Standard, the note at the center of the investigation was intercepted before it could reach either Meghan or Harry. Nonetheless, the love birds were informed of the anthrax scare. Man, oh man.
A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police explained:
“Police are investigating after a package containing a substance was delivered to St James’s Palace on Monday, 12 February. The substance was tested and confirmed as non-suspicious. Officers are also investigating an allegation of malicious communications which relates to the same package.”
Sadly, no arrests have been made at this time. Of course, the authorities are still looking into the matter, especially since this incident comes just as Home Secretary Amber Rudd received her own similar letter with white powder. The substance on the British Conservative politician’s note was also ruled to be harmless.
Unsurprisingly, it’s believed that investigators are searching to see if there is a connection between the two scares. Fingers crossed this incident doesn’t derail the pair’s wedding plans!!
