The Duchess of Sussex has laid flowers at the site of a school shooting in Texas in which 19 children and two teachers were killed.

Meghan placed a bouquet of white roses tied with a purple ribbon at a row of crosses put up in memory of the victims.

The flowers were laid near the cross of 10-year-old Uziyah Garcia, which had the words “you will be missed” written on it, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The Duchess made the trip in a personal capacity as a mother, her spokesperson said, adding that she wanted to give her condolences and support in person.

High school dropout Salvador Ramos went on a rampage in Uvalde on Tuesday, in the deadliest US school shooting in almost a decade.

Campaigners are calling on US President Joe Biden to appoint a “gun tsar” and issue urgent executive orders to try to curb firearm violence.
