Prince William finishes three weeks' work experience in London's financial district

Prince William has finished three weeks of work experience in London's financial district, where he met insurers, traders and even fishmongers, his father's office said Sunday.

Banking giant HSBC organized and hosted the program, designed to provide a glimpse of the inner workings of the City, as London's financial district is known.

"After a very busy three weeks spent in the City, I now have a much better understanding how all the different financial institutions work and how they fit together," William said in a statement released by Clarence House, his father Prince Charles' office.

"Spending every day with people who contribute so much to this country's economy gave me the chance to experience the atmosphere of the City and to see, as best as I could, what it's really like to work there," he said. "And I won the stock picking competition!"

William, 23, graduated from Scotland's St. Andrews University in June, and plans to attend the elite Sandhurst military academy to train to become an army officer. His younger brother Harry also studies at Sandhurst.
