In this day and age, anyone is susceptible to terrorists, even members of the Royal Family.

Scotland Yard is investigating a suspicious letter that was sent to Megan Markle and her fiance Prince Harry at Kensington Palace. The letter contained a white powder which is thought to be anthrax. A racist message was also in the letter. This prompted a full security scare.

Security measures prevented the letter from reaching Markle and Prince Harry. Officers from the Metropolitan Police’s counter-terrorism command were called when the letter was received on February 12th. The letter was sent to St. James Palace for sorting.

A second letter was sent to the office of Home Secretary Amber Rudd at the Houses of Parliament. This occurred just one day after the letter to Markle and Prince Harry was received at Kensington Palace.

The powder in both letters was discovered to be harmless, but it has put Metropolitan Police (the Met), which provides security to the Royal Family, on high alert prior to the May nuptials. The Met is working to prepare for any possible threat, including a terrorist attack.

Thames Valley Police has bought a net of spikes which can stop a vehicle weighing up to 17 tons. These spikes can be deployed in less than a minute.

Following their St George’s Chapel ceremony in Windsor Castle on Saturday, May 19, Harry and Meghan will ride on a public route in a carriage.  This obviously puts them in a vulnerable position to crazed people or a terrorist attack, but these plans currently stand.

Prior to the anthrax scare, Markle had been assigned a team from the Met’s royalty and specialist protection command.

The Royal Family has recently seen an uptick in threats. In October, a 31-year-old man called for attacks on four-year-old Prince George, who is third in line to the throne.

Please share this if you are praying for the safety of the Royal Family!
