On Wednesday, British actress Elizabeth Hurley made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen and finally addressed fan theories claiming she took Prince Harry's virginity, permanently shutting down the rumor that she's the mystery "older woman" the Duke of Sussex wrote about in his 2023 memoir Spare. "That was ludicrous!" Hurley, who is 19 years older than Harry, said when asked about the rumors. "He said, 'She was English. She was older than me. It was in Gloucestershire.' And they were like, 'Ah, it's Elizabeth.'"

She added, "It was absurd. It was ridiculous. It was like saying, 'He's great-looking. He's American.' Oh, it's Andy Cohen."



Hurley also noted that the alleged rendezvous is virtually impossible, as she's "never met" Harry in her life. However, she has been photographed alongside King Charles, as well as Prince William on different occasions.

Harry previously described losing his virginity as an "inglorious episode" with an "older woman." Of the experience, he recounted in his book: "She 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. Among the many things about it that were wrong: It happened in a grassy field behind a busy pub. Obviously, someone had seen us."
