Police are investigating a suspicious package which was addressed Meghan Markle and her fiancé Prince Harry at Kensington Palace.

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. "Officers are also investigating an allegation of malicious communications which relates to the same package", the statement said.

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

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.

A reception will also be held at St George's Hall for the couple and the rest of the congregation before a private evening reception for close family, hosted by Prince Charles.

Anthrax may take a powdered form and be used as a weapon, causing lethal injuries to its victims.However, after being thoroughly examined by toxicologists and police experts, the package was deemed harmless.
