Meghan Markle visited Texas on Thursday, May 26, to pay tribute to the victims killed in the Uvalde massacre. Markle was seen placing a bouquet of white roses at a memorial for the victims who were murdered by Salvador Ramos at Robb Elementary School. The 40-year-old was dressed in jeans, a T-shirt, and a baseball cap.

Reports said that Markle gazed at the crosses to honor the two teachers and 19 children slaughtered by the suspect, who was also shot dead by a hero off-duty Customs and Border Protection agent from an elite tactical unit. The agent killed Ramos before his evil rampage could claim more lives. Meghan placed the white roses, tied with a purple ribbon, at a cross for one of the victims, Uziyah Garcia, 10. On his memorial someone had written, "You will be missed."

Markle was accompanied by a bodyguard, who appeared to be Alberto Alvarez. She stopped by a Uvalde community center hosting a blood drive. She toured the facility and donated food, the Daily Mail reported. Markle did not address the press about her visit to Uvalde.

Meanwhile, Markle's father, Thomas Markle, was reportedly hospitalized this week after suffering a major stroke, which made him lose his speech. He is receiving medical treatment in an American hospital.

After Markle's visit to Uvalde, some social media users began to claim that she was accompanied by camera crews filming content for her deal with Netflix. Reports, however, have claimed that it is unclear whether this is the truth. Netflix has not commented on the matter as of now, and MEAWW could not independently verify if the claim was true. Despite Markle's visit, which some said was generous and thoughtful, a number of social media users slammed her over the alleged 'Netflix' accusation.

"These parents are grieving for their children in the most tragic of circumstances. The last thing they need is a celebrity with her ⁦@netflix crew in tow travelling 1,500m for some self publicity," one user wrote on Twitter. "So Meghan Markle made her appearance in Uvalde TX today… is it genuine, or a Netflix cameo for content?!?!" wrote another. One user said, "I’m not even a Meghan Markle hater, but visiting Uvalde with your Netflix cameraman in tow is beyond tacky, and feels like she’s profiting off a town’s unimaginable grief for good PR."

"Didn't even have the decency to remove her baseball cap. Using a tragedy like this for self promotion and Netflix, is utterly repugnant when she should be with her Father," one user wrote, while another said, "Disputable to use a horrific tragedy for her own PR and Netflix documentary. Also not environmentally friendly to fly to Texas just for a photo op."
