‘I mounted her quickly, after which she spanked my ass and sent me away’

Prince Harry has opened up about losing his virginity to an older woman in a field behind a pub in his new bombshell memoir.

The Duke of Sussex described his first time as an eye-opening moment, saying the woman treated him like a “young stallion”.

The revelations, which are included in his book Spare, came to light when one of the Royal Family’s bodyguards, Marko paid him a visit when he was still a pupil at Eton College in Windsor and told the Prince he had been sent to “find out the truth”.

Harry writes: “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.”

Harry also revealed how he had “taken cocaine” during a shooting weekend by the summer of 2002 when he was 17 and did “a few more lines” on other occasions, according to the Times.

The 38-year-old wrote that it was not “fun and it did not make me feel as happy as it seemed to make others but it did make me feel different and that was my main goal. To feel. To be different”.

“I was a 17-year-old willing to try almost anything that would upset the established order. At least that was what I was trying to convince myself of,” he said.

In further shocking revelations, the Prince said he killed 25 Taliban fighters during his second tour in Afghanistan.

He served in the country as an Apache helicopter pilot and said that he did not think of them “as people” but instead ‘chess pieces’ he had taken off the board.
