Fears For Queen Elizabeth Shut Down As Emergency Services Rush To The Palace

A royal spokesperson has released a statement

The Queens’ Scottish residence has been put on lockdown after a “suspicious letter” containing white powder was received. 

Six fire engines, as well as paramedics and police officers, rushed to the after reports of an emergency security breach at the monarch’s official residence in Edinburgh, the Mirror reports.

A Police Scotland spokesperson has since confirmed that, though they’re still investigating the incident, the letter poses no threat to the general public.

“An investigation is now underway to identify the sender and establish the full circumstances surrounding this incident,” reads a statement obtained by the BBC.

It’s believed that Queen Elizabeth was at her London home of Buckingham Palace when letter was received.

Although the Royals regularly receive ‘hate mail,’ authorities have been put on high alert in the wake of the recent terror attacks in Manchester and London.
