This day and age, no one can ever feel too safe. With the development of brilliant technology and the internet, no one seems to feel overly safe, even within the bounds of their own home. When your life is lived in the spotlight, thoughts of security can be even more daunting.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently were faced with a frightful security scare. A suspicious parcel intended for the Prince and his fiancee was delivered to St. James’ Palace last week. The parcel was intercepted and opened by a staff member before it ever reached the couple’s hands.
The item contained a white, powdery substance that led officers to believe that it could potentially be anthrax. It was sent to the lab for testing, and the results stated that the powder was completely harmless. This act, however, was considered a racist hate crime.
This left the entire staff and members of the family a bit on edge, especially in light of the upcoming nuptials of the Prince and his bride. Security measures have been put in place, and the entire procedure will be fully armed with thousands of armed officers and snipers to help ensure the day will go without a hitch.
Our thoughts are with the family during this troubling time, and we’re relieved that all is well. Now that they have experienced this frightening occurrence, they and their staff will be even more aware of potential dangers that could happen.
