Princes William and Harry will appear together at a charity event to mark the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

The royal pair will appear at an annual charity day held by New York based financial company BGC partners to remember 658 of the [Cantor Fitzgerald] company’s employees who lost their lives in the 11 September 2001 attacks.

The princes will attend a party at the company’s Canary Wharf offices in London before moving to their trading floor to assist employees with telephone deals.

All revenues from the day’s trading will be donated to charity, with proceeds going to charities each prince is a patron of.

A spokesperson said: “William, who is the Patron of Skillforce, and his little brother, who serves as Patron of Well Child, will meet with representatives from their respective charities at the company’s London location where ‘British Summer’ theme party has also been organised.” Harry will later move on to the annual Well Child Awards, also in London. The children’s charity is devoted to ensuring sick children have the very best possible quality of care and the prince will present an award for Most Inspirational Child aged three to six before delivering a speech to close the event.
