There was a royal presence today at ICAP Day, the 19th annual global charity event that has bankers don "fancy dress" (read: costumes) to raise money for over 200 charities.

Hobknobbing with bankers from ICAP, one of England's largest broker firms, was none other than Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

To raise money for a variety of good causes, including Maggie's, a cancer foundation of which the Duchess is president, Camilla worked her way through a sea of costumed brokers in pearls and a navy power suit, making million-pound deals over the phone. All of the revenue and commissions from her trading -- and that of less royal guests -- would go to charity.

ICAP Day is no stranger to big names: last year Prince Charles and William got in on the trading action.

And luckily for us, the brokers really got into the spirit of the day, like one gent (?) who donned a Chewbacca costume. And that photo of Camilla doing a meet-and-greet with a robot? So priceless. Plus, seeing any royal family member in a room full of clowns is a photographic gold mine (and lends well to a variety of politics jokes).

But where's your fancy dress, Camilla? We think you'd make an awesome Glinda from the Wizard of Oz.

Check out our pics below to see the Duchess rubbing elbows with a robot, among others.
