On Thursday the Duchess of Sussex went to the community centre to honour victims of the tragic school shooting that killed 21 people, including 19 children. On May 24, 2022, 18-year-old Salvador Rolando Ramos fatally shot nineteen children and two teachers at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. He also wounded seventeen other people before being shot by the United States Border Patrol Tactical Unit.

The horrific incident is the third-deadliest American school shooting, after the Virginia Tech shooting in 2007 and the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012.

The Duchess of Sussex reportedly entered the back entrance of Herby Ham Activity Centre to deliver two crates of food, beverages, and desserts for blood donors.

Speaking to BuzzFeed News, volunteer Gloria Contreras said: “I had no idea who she was.

“She just was carrying on a conversation like her and I knew each other for years.

“I told her about us giving out water to the people and feeding them.”

Ms Contreras added: “I even talked about my personal life, telling her about my son and my family.

“We were talking about Texas and Uvalde and how it is to be in a small town and how everybody is so kind and warm-hearted.”

Another volunteer called Georjean Burnwell also spoke to BuzzFeed and said: “She just kind of walked in with her security crew.
