Prince Harry Breaks World Record!
Prince Harry's not just breaking hearts: he's breaking world records!
On Monday, the 26-year-old royal managed to close a foreign exchange deal worth £15.5 billion ($24.5 billion) in London's Canary Wharf. According to the UK's Metro, he completed a deal between Barclays London and a European counterpart on the telephone.
Alongside Sarah Ferguson and her daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Prince William's younger brother manned the phones for the BGC Partners' Charity day. The event was organized to honor employees of Cantor Fitzgerald (one of BGC's sister companies) who passed away on Sept. 11, 2011. (Cantor Fitzgerald lost 658 employees when the World Trade Center was attacked 10 years ago.)
When Harry closed the $24.5 billion deal, he earned a $9,000 commission, all of which he plans to donate to Sentebale, a charity he co-founded in 2006 for the children of Lesotho, Africa.
