Britain’s Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to become stockbrokers
Britain’s Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are set to become stockbrokers for the day for charity.
The royal couple – who have two-year-old son Prince George and six-month-old daughter Princess Charlotte together – will reportedly team up with commodities trading company ICAP to take part in their annual charity day in London on December 9.
Prince William and Duchess Kate will be given advice by the traders and will be asked to ‘close’ deals over the phone as well as speak to clients. The tasks will be part of a larger charity fundraising effort held at over 60 of the company’s offices across the world.
The revenue made during that day of trading will be passed on to charitable causes including Place2be, a children’s mental health charity as well as Skillforce, which the Prince is a royal patron for, PEOPLE magazine reports.
In 2014, Prince Harry has taken part and in the previous years, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall have also had a go at being stockbrokers.
Ahead of last year’s efforts, Michael Spencer, Group Chief Executive Officer of ICAP, said: “Charitable giving has always been of central importance to ICAP. We consistently strive to grow Charity Day, innovating each year to continue to make a significant difference to the extraordinary charities that we support.”
