Prince Harry Scolds Prince William For "Flirting" While Playing Stockbroker
Today, Prince William and Prince Harry's day was full of mixed emotions as they attended the funeral of a close family friend and took part in a charity event. First, the princes joined their father, Prince Charles, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, to attend the funeral of Charles's best friend, Hugh van Cutsem, who passed away on Sept. 2. Then, the brothers put on their smiles as they took part in a charity event with BGC Partners. The brothers teamed up to broker multibillion-pound deals, including one deal that was worth over $33 billion. Harry and William joked during their phone calls, with Harry chastising William and telling him to "stop flirting" when he started talking about his new son, Prince George. Later, Harry told the broker who was helping him with his trades, "William's on the phone, it's all baby chat. I'm much better at helicopter chat." Meanwhile, a smiling William told another broker on the phone that George is "very well" and is "sleeping quite well."
BGC Partners holds their annual charity day to remember the 658 employees they lost during the terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers on Sept. 11. Harry and William's appearance raised money for several of their charities, including WellChild and SkillForce. WellChild's Royal Patron Harry was on hand later in the evening to hand out honors for their annual awards ceremony, which celebrates the bravery of seriously ill children around the UK. William will also have more time to devote to his royal duties as it was announced that he had officially ended his time as a RAF search and rescue pilot. According to a reporter for the BBC, William's last shift took place in Anglesey, Wales, on Tuesday. While Kate Middleton did not join her husband or her brother-in-law for their charity day, she is expected to be by his side when they attend the inaugural Tusk Conversation Awards in London tomorrow.
