While William attended the funeral of his childhood nanny Olga Powell, Kate spent an Away Day in Newcastle. The Princess began by meeting representatives of various charities at the Newcastle Civic Centre before heading to Elswick Park to support Fields in Trust. The highlight of the day was the tour of a community garden where Kate dug up potatoes and confided to students she was growing potatoes herself, but, like much of Europe that year, was having a poor crop. Kate closed her day visiting Keyfund, a charity that helps youth unlock their potential and then CRI Stockton Recovery Service where Action on Addiction's M-PACT Plus was being implemented.
