Elizabeth Hurley addresses rumors she took Prince Harry’s virginity

Elizabeth Hurley is clearing up the “ridiculous” speculation that she was the older woman to whom Prince Harry lost his virginity.

The 58-year-old “Austin Powers” star told “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen” on Wednesday that she’s “never met” the 39-year-old Duke of Sussex.

The Duke wrote about that first “inglorious” tryst in his controversial 2023 memoir, “Spare.”

“That was ludicrous!” the actress and model said of the rumors. “He said, ‘She was English. She was older than me. It was in Gloucestershire.’ And they were like, ‘Ah, it’s Elizabeth.’ It was absurd. It was ridiculous.”‘

Hurley, who said, “I’ve never met him in my life,” equated the speculation to “saying, ‘He’s great-looking. He’s American. Oh, it’s Andy Cohen.'”

The royal wrote that the “older woman” in question “liked horses, quite a lot, and treated me not unlike a young stallion.

“Quick ride, after which she’d smacked my rump and sent me off to graze,” he added.

Though Harry never named the woman he has sex with at age 17 “in a grassy field behind a busy pub,” the book pulled back the curtain on a slew of otherwise private (and oft-salacious) details about the prince. These ranged from his experimentation with drugs, bowel issues at his friend’s wedding, frostbitten genitals, and a physical altercation with big brother William over Meghan Markle.

Hurley’s dismissal of the Harry rumors comes amid widespread instability in the monarchy as both Kate Middleton and King Charles III undergo treatment for cancer.
