Dutchess Meghan Markle is paying her respects to the victims of the mass murder in Uvalde, Texas. The mother of two visited the makeshift memorial on Thursday to honor the 19 children and two teachers who were killed on May 24th.

It was then reported that the 40-year-old went to visit volunteers at a nearby blood drive and offered sandwiches, beverages, and desserts.

All eyes are on the small town of Uvalde, Texas after the fatal school shooting that took place at Robb Elementary School.

Hearts break around the world for the 21 victims of gun violence who were killed senselessly on March 24th.

Of the victims, 19 were elementary school children and 2 were teachers.

California-born Dutchess Meghan Markle made the trip to Texas to pay her respects to the grieving community.

According to a spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess, Meghan traveled to Uvalde “as a mother” to offer her condolences and support to the town's volunteers.

Meghan was photographed laying a bouquet of white roses at the memorial that has been erected at Robb Elementary School.

According to BuzzFeed News, the Dutchess then made her way to visit volunteers at a blood drive that has been set up in the local community center and donated packages of “sandwiches, beverages, and desserts.”

Volunteer Georjean Burnell told the news outlet: "She was just really sweet."

She just kind of walked in with her crew and started putting ice waters in the bucket with us and laying out chips for the people who were needing snacks before and after donating...."

Georjean then went on to admit the volunteers didn't even know it was Ms. Markle until after she left.

"It’s funny, we didn't even know it was her until after she left and now we're so sad. I mean, to be honest, we thought she was our neighbor."

What an important way to honor and help those who need it most.
