Meghan Markle came to Uvalde to support the victims of the shooting in Texas -


Meghan Markle came to Uvalde to support the victims of the shooting in Texas. The morning of May 24 in the city of Uvalde, Texas, began with a real tragedy: 19-year-old Salvador Ramos, armed with a pistol and a rifle, fired at a local elementary school. As a result of the crime, 19 children and three adults, including the shooter, were killed.

It is worth noting that for this state, the possession of weapons is an absolute norm, and such cases are rather not an exception, but an ingrained rule, so the other day, US President Joe Biden said that it was necessary to resist the arms lobby. In memory of the dead, the president of the states ordered flags to be flown at half-mast over all government buildings.

Also, before the match, the Seattle Mariners baseball team and the Oakland Athletics expressed their grief and condolences with a moment of silence. Meghan Markle did not stand aside either: yesterday, the Duchess personally arrived in Uvalde and laid a bouquet of white roses at the memorial in honor of the dead.

Later it became known that the Sussex put flowers on the cross, on which there was a sign with the name of 10-year-old Ouzia Garcia. Representatives of the Dukes said that this trip to Megan was not planned, but she simply could not come. Markle personally expressed her condolences to the families of the victims. The network also got photographs in which the Duchess was captured at a makeshift memorial, which is located near the courthouse of the city of Yuvald, not far from Robb’s elementary school, where this terrible tragedy happened.

Sussex chose very simple clothes for a visit: blue jeans, a white T-shirt, sneakers and a black baseball cap. It is known that the Duchess arrived in Uvalde accompanied by the head of her security service, Alberto Alvarez. It is reported that Meghan ignored the calls of reporters and only silently looked at the memorial.
