Meghan Markle visits Uvalde in personal tribute to shooting victims


Meghan Markle paid a personal visit Thursday to a memorial for the victims of the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

The BBC reports that Markle laid flowers at the memorial to the 19 children and two adults who died in the deadly school attack. She wore a baseball cap, t-shirt, jeans and sneakers.

The Duchess of Sussex had traveled solo from her home in Montecito outside Santa Barbara, California prior to the appearance.

A spokesperson for the former actress said she visited in a personal capacity as a mother to offer her condolences and support.

The Duchess was joined by her security chief Alberto Alvarez who watched from a respectful distance.

On Tuesday, an 18-year-old gunman crashed his car into a ditch near the school, then, after passing law enforcement, entered a classroom and locked himself inside, killing 21 people, as reported by Breitbart News.
