Scotland Yard is reportedly investigating after a letter that had white powder was sent to Prince Harry and his fiancée Meghan Markle.

London's Evening Standard reports the letter never made it to the couple. The contents were reportedly discovered while being sorted at St. James's Palace.

Police did test the white powder and said it wasn't anthrax. Officials are also looking into the letter itself, which reportedly had a racist tone.

The letter was delivered Feb. 12, one day before a package that also had white powder was sent to the Palace of Westminster, which houses U.K.'s Parliament. Police also said that powder wasn't harmful.

No arrests have been made in connection with the letter sent to Markle and the prince. The couple is getting married in May.
