On December 7, 2011, H.R.H. the Duchess of Cornwall participated in the 19th Annual ICAP Charity Day in London, England. Per the official website for the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall:
The Duchess of Cornwall closed a £5 billion deal in the City today as part of a global charity event hosted by the stockbroker firm ICAP.
The ICAP 19th annual global charity day saw The Duchess and a number of celebrities including Lewis Hamilton, Rod Stewart and Rupert Everett join hundreds of brokers sporting fancy dress to raise funds for more than 200 charities.
The £5 billion deal completed by The Duchess of Cornwall was a “five yard” sterling interest rate swap, facilitated by brokers dressed as beefeaters, and one of several huge deals closed by The Duchess as she moved from desk to desk.
The inter-dealer broker ICAP expects to raise millions for charities including Maggie’s, a cancer charity of which The Duchess is President. source
