Dressed in blue jeans, white sneakers, a T-shirt, and a hat, the casually-dressed Duchess was seen dropping off a bouquet of white roses on Thursday.
Meghan was also seen wearing Princess Diana’s $23,000 Cartier Tank Watch and a Cartier Love Bracelet, according to the Daily Mail.
Her appearance comes in the wake of her dad being left unable to speak after suffering a “major stroke” less than a week before he was due to travel to the UK for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
Meghan’s dad, 77-year-old Thomas Markle Sr, was struck by a health emergency in Mexico and had to be taken across the border to San Diego in an ambulance while using an oxygen mask.
He was said to have lost his speech following the incident on Monday night which came after he already suffered a health scare last week, sources told The Celeb Report.
His condition was so serious he could only communicate by scrawling down messages on a piece of paper, pals said.
Meghan’s older half-brother Thomas Markle Jr, 55, was with him in Rosarito, the Mexican beach resort where he lives, on Monday when he was taken ill.
His daughter Samanta Markle, 57, is understood to be flying in from Florida to be by his side.
His estranged daughter Meghan, 40, and son-in-law Prince Harry, 37, are also due to fly into the UK for the jubilee next week.

Meghan’s memorial sighting also comes just two days after 18-year-old Ramos allegedly shot his grandmother before fleeing her home in her pickup truck, crashing his vehicle, and gaining entry into Robb Elementary school.
His rampage inside the Uvalde, Texas, school left 19 students and two teachers dead, and more than a dozen others injured.
