Giggles as Camilla turns City slicker for charity

09 DECEMBER 2011

The Duchess of Cornwall can barely keep a straight face as she takes instructions from a trader dressed as a wolf.

In one of her more unusual engagements, Camilla was organising a €150 million trade under the guidance of financier Simon Bond. 

As the patron of Maggie's Centres, an organisation supporting cancer patients, Prince Charles' wife was taking part in the ICAP charity event in the City of London.

Her hilarious day also involved closing deals with the help of Chewbacca, Harrison Ford's hairy sidekick in Star Wars, characters from Thunderbirds, Beefeaters and Middle Eastern 'sheiks' manning the fuel oil desk.

Despite looking thoroughly bemused by the workings of the financial sector and even commenting: "It's another language",  she managed to negotiate with clients by phone, at one point holding two at once, to seal big money deals.

The annual global ICAP charity day has raised more than £76 million since it started in 1993.
