Scotland Yard are investigating a "white powder" sent in a letter addressed to Prince Harry and his fiancee Meghan Markle at Kensington Palace.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed that officers tested a substance in a package received at St James's Palace.

They are also believed to be examining whether there is a link between the two incidents.

When their relationship was first revealed in 2016, Harry issued a strongly-worded statement against media harassment of his mixed-race girlfriend.

Analysis taken from both letters found the powder they contained to be harmless.

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

The letter was intercepted before reaching the couple but a full security scare was sparked over fears it could contain anthrax.

The package was sent to St. James's Palace for sorting, and "the substance was tested and confirmed as non-suspicious", according to a Palace spokesperson.

A letter containing non-harmful white powder was also reportedly sent to Home Secretary Amber Rudd the following day.

No arrests have been made at this time, though the incident will likely put authorities on high alert come the couple's May 19 wedding.

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

It looks like not everyone is happy about the upcoming union between Prince Harry and actress Meghan Markle.
