Yes, her partner was injured in her single so they had to pull out.
She will not play Wimbledon. I think she only has one ITF tournament left to play before her 16th birthday so she would not be able to play both Roehampton warm-up and Wimbledon quali. Changing from clay to grass takes at least a week so arriving directly for a Wimbledon qualy would not be well prepared. And staying one week in London practising on grass would cost a fortune in hotels and court fees.
So I guess it is matter of spending money on a limited tournament budget most wisely.
