With Prince Harry’s upcoming memoir set to be released in the new year, rumours have swirled that the Duke of Sussex could detail extremely personal aspects of his past relationships. There has been rampant speculation that the Duke of Sussex could reveal that he lost his virginity to a “beautiful older woman” in his younger years. Amid the royal gossip, actress and model Elizabeth Hurley has spoken out to deny any suggestions of an intimate relationship she shared with the Prince.
The Times has suggested one of the “most extraordinary” details within Prince Harry’s forthcoming memoir is the revelation that he lost his virginity to a mysterious “beautiful older woman in the countryside”.
During an interview with The Times, Ms Hurley was asked if she had a sexual relationship with the Duke of Sussex when she was a teenager.
The actress promptly responded: “Not me. Not guilty. Ha!” She doubled down on her denial as she added: “No. Not me, Absolutely not.”
A spokesperson for Prince Harry did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Express.co.uk.
Prince Harry’s memoir, Spare, will hit shelves worldwide on January 10, just weeks after the premier of the explosive docu-series starring the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Publisher Penguin Random House has described the book as an “intimate and heartfelt” account of Prince Harry’s “experiences, adventures, losses and life lessons”.
The autobiography is set to cover his “lifetime in the public eye,” from his childhood within the Royal Family, his military service and his later life as a husband and father.
Penguin Random House reported: “Prince Harry will offer an honest and captivating personal portrait, one that shows readers that behind everything they think they know lies an inspiring, courageous, and uplifting human story.”

A website launched for the book ahead of the release date described the memoir as “a landmark publication full of insight, revelation, self-examination and hard-won wisdom.”
In promotional content for the autobiography, the image of a young Prince Harry walking behind his mother’s coffin has been a dominant focus, with the book itself to analyse “the eternal power of love over grief”.
The Duke of Sussex has outlined his intent to donate proceeds from the book to a number of charities, including $1,500,000 to Sentebale, an organisation he founded alongside Prince Seeiso.
The charity works to support children and young people affected by HIV/AIDS, continuing the legacies of their mothers’ work.
