Kate Middleton Brings Smiles to Newcastle as William Pays His Respects
Kate Middleton continued her four-day tour of the UK this morning with a handful of appearances in the city of Newcastle. She visited the Newcastle Civic Centre, where she met with youngsters. Kate also checked out the progress of a community garden project at Elswick Park and met with young women at the Keyfund Office charity. Kate also made the rounds at the Stockton Recovery Service, which is a support organization for people over 18 who are using drugs.
Her morning was spent solo, as Prince William had to take care of a more pressing personal matter. William attended the funeral of his former nanny, Olga Powell, who was particularly important to him growing up since she helped him and his brother through the difficult period following Princess Diana and Prince Charles's divorce. Yesterday, though, Kate and William were together to open the new soccer training complex at St. George's Park. William will be back in action tomorrow as well, when he hosts the annual 100 Women in Hedge Funds dinner in London.
