Students from schools in Cranford and Feltham joined Prince Harry to help him raise money for charities across the world.
Rugby players from Cranford Community College, in Cranford, and Rivers Academy, in Feltham, joined the prince at the ICAP Charity Day last Wednesday (December 3).
Prince Harry was one of dozens of celebrity brokers who took to the trading floor to raise money as the stockbroking giant ICAP donated all that day's revenue and commissions to various charities.
Five students from Cranford and five from Rivers were invited to represent the Rugby Football Foundation - one of more than 100 charities benefiting from the £8 million raised on the day.
The money will help support the Foundation's All Schools programme, being run in conjunction with the Rugby Football Union, to encourage schools without a tradition of playing rugby - like Cranford and Rivers - to take up the sport.
Students from the two schools formed a guard of honour for Prince Harry, who is the patron of the All Schools programme, as he took to the trading floor. They also met past and present rugby stars helping to raise money at the event in the City.
Kevin Prunty, executive headteacher at Cranford Community College, said: "I have been delighted with the way the All Schools programme has helped challenge perceptions and establish rugby as the premier sport for both boys and girls at Cranford.
"It was particularly pleasing to see such rapid progress with one of our school teams competing in the finals alongside schools with longer histories of playing rugby, including Harrow School, London Oratory and Hampton Grammar."
Cranford student Ajay Turner, who was assigned to help the prince on the trading floor, said: "Harry told us about how he had loved playing rugby and had started as a scrum half but as he grew up he was moved into the second row."
The All Schools programme was set up in 2012 with the aim of introducing one million pupils at 750 state schools across the country to rugby union ahead of next year's Rugby World Cup.
