The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge goes shopping on a ‘strict budget’


Today marks the second day of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s official Royal tour of Ireland with a visit to Teagasc Animal and Grassland Research Centre in Grange, County Meath.

The couple spoke to a group of farmers who are using the research in their own practices and met primary school children visiting the farm, joining in a session to learn about the environment, nutrition, and food production.

William and Kate also went to youth mental health charity Jigsaw in Dublin and spoke of the importance of getting a ‘tool box’ to help deal with life’s issues as they talked to young people at the drop-in centre and community campaigners, teachers, parents and coaches about the impact of its work in one-to-one, neighbourhood, school and online services.

Two things they did that was a highlight for Royal fans was a visit Savannah House in County Kildare to join young people cooking and playing table tennis. The residential facility is run by social justice charity Extern in Clane. 

And finally, the Duke and Duchess went on a shopping trip to a village convenience store in Ireland today to help teach vulnerable children how to buy and cook food on a tight budget.

Simon and Molly, both 13 year olds, got the company of the couple as they shopped for ingredients for a vegetable soup- including a bag of brown bread, butter, and leeks.

Extern supports more than 20,000 people per year, including 3,500 children in Ireland and 6,500 in Northern Ireland, affected by issues such as homelessness, drug and alcohol abuse, offending, and mental health problems.
