Meghan Markle visited Texas on Thursday to pay her respects to the 21 victims who were killed at an elementary school in Uvalde.
Photos showed the Duchess of Sussex laying a bouquet of white roses at a memorial to the victims who were gunned down at Robb Elementary School on Thursday.
Markle, 40, was dressed casually in jeans, a t-shirt and a baseball cap.
Markle stared at the crosses to honor the 19 children and two teachers who were fatally shot during Tuesday’s attack while ignoring questions from reporters, according to the Los Angeles Times.
She then placed the white roses tied with purple ribbon on a cross for 10-year-old Uziyah Garcia, the newspaper reported.
“You will be missed,” someone scrawled on the boy’s memorial.
She was accompanied by a bodyguard who appeared to be Alberto Alvarezwho was with Michael Jackson on the night of his death in June 2009.
Exiled royal princes Harry and Markle have reportedly recently hired Alvarez, 45, as their bodyguard. Queen Elizabeth’s 37-year-old grandson was photographed earlier this week biking in Montecito, California while being accompanied by the hulking companion.
President Biden said Wednesday he will also be visiting Uvalde with First Lady Jill Biden in the coming days to “hopefully bring some comfort to the community.”
“As a nation, I think we all have to be there for them,” Biden said. “And we need to ask when in God’s name are we going to do what needs to be done.”
