The Duke of Sussex attended the 15th annual BGC Charity Day to honour those killed in the September 11 attacks.

Prince Harry has taken to the trading floor to remember victims of the 9/11 terror attack.

The Duke is reported to have closed a £1 billion government bond trade deal known as Gilts.

He will be looking to raise funds and taking donations from clients over the phone at BGC Partner's offices in Canary Wharf.

The event remembers the 658 BCG employees and 61 Eurobrokers colleagues who died in the terror attacks on the World Trade Centre 18 years ago.

The 34-year-old royal is attending as an Invictus Games ambassador, and will be joined by other celebrities including Tom Hardy, Alan Carr and Kit Harrington.

Shaun D. Lynn, President of BGC Partners said: "September 11th remains a day very close to our hearts and I am incredibly proud to be hosting our 15th Charity Day, which turns such a historic anniversary into an uplifting day for all involved."

"We have now raised over $150 million globally, an outstanding achievement, which would not be possible without the incredible support of our clients, staff and the charities involved each year."

"I am looking forward to another day raising money for such worthwhile causes, and making this year’s Charity Day the best yet."
