Boston Globe Consulting organizes the annual event every year at their Canary Wharf office to commemorate the devastating September 11 terrorist attacks in 2001.

Held in collaboration with Cantor Fitzgerald, who lost countless staff in the attack, the event brings together dozens of famous faces who go to the trading floor in an effort to raise money for goals that are dear to them.

Amanda, 48, picked up the phone on behalf of Battersea Dogs & Cats Home and was cheerful when she mingled with her fellow guests on Wednesday afternoon.

The pair were ready to raise money for Children with Cancer UK, and they were full of character because they shared a joke with their broker before the trade started.

Welsh mezzo-soprano Katherine, 39, joined the group and wore an elegant cinched blue dress while representing the charity Grief Encounter for children.

The star enjoyed a light-hearted telephone conversation while concluding a deal on behalf of the London-based charity.

Meanwhile, the Duke of Sussex signed a £ 1 billion deal on a financial trading floor while helping to raise thousands of pounds for charity, including his Invictus Games.

Armed with three telephones while traders barked orders at him, Harry remained calm and managed to close the transaction, which raised an estimated £ 50,000.

At the Gilts office, which trades in government debt, Harry completed the huge trade under the watchful eye of Ryder Brown, co-head of the department.

He said: & # 39; I thought he was excellent. It was very nerve-racking, but he handled the pressure well and closed the trade. It was difficult to close the trade. He picked up the phone and managed to do it – it's like acting in the old style. & # 39;

He followed orders from the staff around him when he made a £ 75 million deal and at one point said to the customer at the end of the line, "come on, one more".

When the deal was closed again, this time it was worth £ 100 million and he told the unknown trader on the phone "we are working on your order" and then added "can you improve your offer" when a BGC trader asks say the words.
