The Duke of Cambridge and his brother Prince Harry spent around an hour striking deals during a company’s annual charity day to raise money in memory of hundreds of the firm’s employees who died in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York 12 years ago.

The pair notched up a record 25 billion euro deal during the event at BGC Partners brokerage in London’s Docklands.

‘Was that a billion?’

The Duke of Cambridge remarked at one point to a broker: “Bloody hell, was that a billion?”

Turning to his brother after the trader nodded, he said: "Apparently we should work here."

But he also said: "I'm much better at helicopters."
