Prince William finishes 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.

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.

William visited the Bank of England, the London Stock Exchange, Lloyd's of London and even the famous Billingsgate fish market.

He was based at HSBC's Charities Investment Services team, and helped with analyzing companies and preparing for client meetings, AP reports.
