The older woman who took Harry’s virginity is now a breeding vet, the pub manager says
The elderly woman who deflowered Harry in a field when he was 17 is said to be a veterinarian at a horse farm, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.
In his memoir Spare, the prince revealed that behind a busy pub – believed to be the 17th-century Rattlebone Inn in Wiltshire – his mistress “treated me like a young stallion”.
Franck Ortet, a former manager of the pub, told MoS last night that he believes the mystery woman was an attractive member of the local polo set who was spending wild nights at the pub with Harry and Prince William when she was in the centre her career was. 20s
The woman began walking to the Rattlebone in the pretty village of Sherston in April 2000 with the two princes and a group of players from the nearby Beaufort Polo Club.
About ten years older than Harry, she is now the equine vet at a successful stud farm and, perhaps appropriately, looks after several stallions.
Mr Ortet, 48, described the woman as “very confident” and the “leader” of a group of friends Harry socialized with in his late teens in pubs near his father’s Highgrove estate in Gloucestershire.
“She was there almost every time Harry and William were around,” he said. “Often she sat between the two of them or next to Harry. She would chide him by saying “Oh shut up Harry” if he said something that was nonsense. They giggled quite a bit, which made me think she was the right person. She was also quite flirtatious.
“She was lovely and she was always very close to them. Whenever she was in the pub she shadowed her. In my personal opinion, she would be the perfect candidate. She’s not super famous, but she’s not a commoner either.
“Everyone kind of sought her approval — she was the kind of person you want to make laugh. All the boys liked her.’
MoS approached the woman’s home yesterday but a man who answered the door, believed to be her husband, said she would not comment.
Leaked copies of Spare in Spain caused a stir last week with Harry’s obviously crass language. “I quickly mounted her, then she spanked me and sent me away,” says a translated edition of the book.
But the MoS is the first to see an English version of the book where it’s clear the prince used a light-hearted metaphor. He likened the encounter to being treated “like a young stallion,” adding, “Quick ride, after that she had slapped my bum and sent me out to graze.”
The MoS first revealed in 2002 how William and Harry were enjoying wild “lock-ins” at the Rattlebone with their friends.
The group held their drinking sessions in the pub’s so-called ‘magic room’ – a rear bar away from the front windows.
During one particularly drunk night, Mr Ortet, who is originally from Biarritz in France but now lives in Shropshire, set out an extraordinary 36 pints of snakebite lager and cider for the princes and their friends to drink after work.
“We did this game where we had to drink three or four pints in less than a minute… When you’re in your 20s you do stupid things like that,” Mr. Ortet said.
However, the party turned sour one night in Spring 2001 when a drunk Harry repeatedly hurled racial slurs at Mr Ortet, who banned Harry from the pub and has not seen him since.
He said he believed a field behind the Rattlebone, surrounded by a stone wall, would have been the “perfect place” for Harry’s brief liaison. But others are not so sure.
After Harry went into lockdown, he and his friends began drinking at The Vine Tree in nearby Norton. But the popular pub has a large central window overlooking a field, meaning revelers might have spotted fornication outside.
Another contender cited by locals is The Cat and Custard Pot in Shipton Moyne, which also has a large field behind its car park.
Some of those who knew Harry from polo are dismayed by his recent behavior.
“He lost his brain — it slipped about a meter,” said Beryl Clampton, 82, who lives in Sherston. ‘He’ll come to his senses one day.’
