“Racist” Package Sent to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Under Investigation By Scotland Yard


Police are investigating a suspicious package that was sent to Prince Harry and fiancee Meghan Markle as a racist hate crime, Scotland Yard said Thursday. The Metropolitan Police force said “a package containing a substance” was delivered to St. James’ Palace, where Harry has his office, on Feb. 12.


The police said the substance “was tested and confirmed as non-suspicious.”


It also said counterterrorism detectives are investigating the incident as an alleged malicious communication offense, “and it is being treated as a racist hate crime.”


The Evening Standard newspaper reported that the package was a letter containing white powder and a racist message.


The prince and Markle are due to marry May 19 at Windsor Castle.


Earlier this month, a letter containing white powder was sent to an office at Parliament, leading to a partial evacuation of the building. It also was found to be nontoxic.
