Elizabeth Hurley has responded to widespread theories she was the older woman who took Prince Harry’s virginity.

“That was ludicrous!” the British actress, 58, said on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in response to a fan asking about the rumours.

“He [Harry] 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 is 19 years Harry’s senior, even went so far as to say that she has never crossed paths with the Duke of Sussex.

“I’ve never met him in my life,” she said.

The Gossip Girl actress feels there was no rhyme or reason as to why the public assumed she was the person who took Harry’s V-card.

“It was like saying, ‘He’s great looking. He’s American.’ Oh, it’s Andy Cohen,” she joked.

The renegade royal, 38, reflected on what he referred to as a “quick romp” with a more mature lady in his memoir, Spare, which hit shelves in January 2023.

“Inglorious episode,” he wrote. “She liked horses, quite a lot, and treated me not unlike a young stallion.”

He continued, “Quick ride, after which she’d smacked my rump and sent me to grace.”

Harry admitted there were so “many things about it that were wrong” — one of which being that it “happened in a grassy field behind a busy pub.”

After the details of his not-so-romantic rendezvous emerged, a woman named Sasha Walpole claimed to be the woman the prince had written about.

“He was a young boy, so for him, it may have been mega awkward,” she said on Piers Morgan’s Uncensored show at the time.

Walpole, 40, claimed she was 19 when she slept with Harry, who was 17 at the time, and added that “it should never have happened.”

“We were friends. It’s not really that glorious in a field behind a pub,” she said. “There was nothing glorious about being drunk and [having sex with] your mate.”

Hurley previously denied she had slept with Harry before his book even came out.

“Not me. Not guilty. Ha!” she told the Saturday Times Magazine in December 2022 after the passage leaked early. “No. Not me. Absolutely not.”

The Invictus Games founder famously dated Chelsy Davy on and off from 2004 to 2011. He was also romantically linked to the late Caroline Flack and Ellie Goulding before his relationship with Meghan Markle started in 2016.

Harry and the Suits star, 42, tied the knot in 2018 and share two kids: Prince Archie, 4, and Princess Lilibet, 2.

The Sussex family lives in a $21 million Montecito, California, mansion after quitting royal life in 2020.

Since moving to the United States, Markle has been busy staging a Hollywood comeback and launched her lifestyle brand, American Riviera Orchard, last month.
