Amid Prince Harry’s personal revelations in his bombshell memoir, one particularly eyebrow-raising confession has sent the rumour mill into overdrive.
The Duke of Sussex has set tongues wagging with his detailed account of how he lost his virginity to an older horse-loving woman in a field at the age of 17.
In his book Spare, Harry reveals he ‘mounted’ his lover behind a busy pub – thought to be the Rattlebone Inn in Wiltshire – in what he describes as a ‘humiliating’ encounter.
With the prince going into intimate details worthy of a passage from a Jilly Cooper novel he described how his unnamed partner had treated him like a ‘young stallion’ and had ‘spanked’ him.

His surprising account has fuelled feverish speculation over who the mystery woman could be. After rumours swirled for some time, actress Liz Hurley ruled herself out before the book even appeared on shelves in Spanish bookshops this week.
Harry’s penchant for older woman is well known, with the young prince previously being linked to a string of women who were several years his senior.
One woman he was linked with at the time was former model Suzannah Harvey, who was 23 and described as a keen horsewoman.
Harry was said to have hit on Miss Harvey, now the chief executive of Cotswold Airport, at the Beaufort Hunt Christmas Ball held in a marquee in the grounds of Badminton House in Wiltshire.
She told the Mail at the time that the then-teenager, who was still a pupil at Eton, had showered her with compliments before leading her outside and across a muddy field.
‘I couldn’t believe it when he made a beeline for me,’ she said at the time.
They pair enjoyed several intimate dances before sitting down together to drink champagne when Harry suggested they ‘get some air’. She said he ‘handled her like a grown man’.
‘It was very nice, but as we were kissing I started to get worried that his bodyguards would be looking for him. I didn’t want to get him into trouble,’ Miss Harvey said.
‘He’s a wild child and William was helpless to stop him. Outside he handled me like a grown man.
‘He grabbed me by the waist and pulled me into to him. It felt like his hands were going round my whole waist.

‘The kissing was full of passion. My mouth was numb and couldn’t move,’ she said in a 2002 interview.
She said the confident teenager said he ‘loved her sexy body’ and put his arms around her to warm her up in the cold night.
‘When he started to get more passionate I began to worry. He was feeling my bum and my back was in the direction we had come from so a guest could have seen us.
‘I tried to keep my hands to myself but I was tempted to let myself go,’ she admitted.
‘It was so heated, steam was rising from us into the freezing cold air. He was definitely experienced in handling a woman.’

Miss Harvey said she had told Harry she was six years older than him but that did not seem to bother him.
She added that he had tried to take her behind a minibus but she was worried about ruining her £1,500 ball gown.
By the time they returned to the marquee, her dress was muddy from walking in a field and they carried on dancing before going their separate ways.
Now a 44-year-old successful businesswoman and mother of two, who is engaged to be married, Miss Harvey said last night that Prince Harry’s memoir was not something she wished to discuss.
She declined to talk to a reporter who called at her Cotswold home yesterday, adding that she was away but her boyfriend, who she said was ‘in the SAS’, was there.
Moments later, a man walked up the driveway of the four-bedroom stone property and said: ‘Please leave now before I call the police.’
Prince Harry has been linked to other older women over the years including the late Caroline Flack who was six years older than him and presenter Natalie Pinkman who was seven years his senior.
He was also said to have pursued interior designer Catherine Ommanney – 13 years his senior – when he was 21 in 2006.
Like Miss Hurley, others may come out to distance themselves from the embarrassing encounter recounted in Harry’s book.
The actress was quick to quash rumours in an interview with The Times, saying: ‘Not me. Not guilty. Not me. Absolutely not.’
In a translation from the Spanish edition of the book, Harry revealed how he lost his virginity when discussing how a royal aide had paid him a visit to discuss a potential scandal.
He wrote: ‘I suspected he was referring to my recent loss of virginity, a humiliating episode with an older woman who liked macho horses and who treated me like a young stallion.
‘I mounted her quickly, after which she spanked my ass and sent me away. One of my many mistakes was letting it happen in a field, just behind a very busy pub. No doubt someone had seen us.’
However, the real reason the aide had been sent to check up on Harry was because his father’s office had been informed that a newspaper had evidence of him taking drugs – which Harry said was ‘lies’.
