Prince Harry Hits The Trading Floor As Part of ICAP Charity Day
Fresh from his tour of the Caribbean (and a brief stopover in Toronto), Prince Harry today helped raise funds for his charity Sentebale during the annual ICAP Charity Day at the brokers’ headquarters in London.
Walking the floors filled with brokers dressed in fancy dress instead of their usual suit and tie combination, Harry took in their attire with a grin before hitting the phones himself – including closing deals with Australian brokers – to help close deals, with revenues and commissions from the day’s trade going to nominated charities (one of which was Sentebale).
“We’d like a bit more than that please,” the Prince said to one caller as they discussed a deal. He also made jokes with the brokers about their costumes, saying they had all made a great effort.
Harry wasn’t the only royal on the trading floor today, as the Countess of Wessex stopped by to help raise money for one of her patronages, the children’s hospice Shooting Star Chase. She said she hoped the brokers “didn’t come in on the Tube like that” in relation to their costumes, laughing when some confirmed that they actually had.
The two royals also took a turn at the life-size game of Operation set up by the London Air Ambulance, with the Countess performing much better than her nephew.Filed under The United Kingdom
