Meghan arranges an arrangement of white roses with a purple ribbon to a series of crosses in Uvalde dedicated to the victims.
The Duchess of Sussex has paid her respects to the victims of a Texas school shooting, which claimed the lives of 19 students and two instructors.
Meghan laid a bunch of white flowers with a purple ribbon in front of a row of crosses in Uvalde dedicated to the victims.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the flowers were placed near Uziyah Garcia’s cross, which read “you will be missed.”
The duchess traveled to offer her condolences and support in person, according to her spokesman. Meghan was not accompanied by her husband Prince Harry, who resides in Montecito, California.
On Tuesday, Salvador Ramos, a high school dropout, went on a shooting spree at Robb Elementary. It was the most deadly school shooting in the United States in in a decade.
Advocates for gun control are now urging US President Joe Biden to take tougher steps to reduce such bloodshed. They want a gun violence tsar named and an executive order on background checks for gun purchases issued, among other things.
While President Joe Biden has pledged to work for stricter gun laws, the White House prefers Congress to take action first in order to have a greater impact than executive action alone.
The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations will be attended by Harry and Meghan with both of their children next week. The Queen will meet Lilibet, her 11-month-old great-granddaughter, for the first time. Archie Harrison, the couple’s firstborn, has not seen Her Majesty in over two years.
“Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, are pleased and privileged to attend the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee festivities with their children this June,” a representative for the pair said in a statement.
