A pub manager who claimed Prince Harry called her a ‘f***ing frog’ has told how female fans would ‘throw themselves’ at the young royal – and she believes ’20 A party girl in the middle of the decade’ was the man she lost her virginity to in a field behind a pub.
Frank Ortet ran The Rattlebone Inn near King Charles’ Highgrove home in Gloucestershire during the years when young princes Harry and William enjoyed wild drinking with friends.
Frank, who is French, famously banned Harry from pubs when he was 16 after the drunken young royal refused alcohol and is said to have told Frank to ‘f*** ing frog’.
The Duke of Sussex recalls his teenage years in his memoir ‘Spare’ and reveals how he lost his virginity to a horse-loving older woman who treated him ‘like a young horse’ and slapped his bottom after they ended up having sex in the back of a pub. ,

‘ I quickly turned him around, after which he whacked my ass and sent me off. One of my many mistakes was letting this happen in a field right behind a very busy pub. No doubt someone saw us,’ he wrote.
Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, Frank, 48, said: ‘Harry has never been short of female fans, even when he was just a boy. He was a royal prince so naturally the ladies would be blinking their eyes at him and William all the time.
‘Both boys were always very cautious around women in pubs, especially when their security officers would be keeping an eye on them.’
Franck, originally from Biarritz in France but now living in Shropshire, explained that there was a woman who he believes was the one who took away Harry’s virginity.
Frank famously banned Harry from pubs when he was 16 after the young royal refused alcohol and apparently branded Frank a ‘f***ing frog’.
He said: ‘There was one particular woman in her mid-20s who Harry was close to. She was a party girl, very attractive and very flirtatious with him.
‘I won’t name her but she was from their world socially, so she wasn’t intimidated by Harry or his status. I remember she once shot him in a pub when he was trying to act big. She just turned to him and said “Oh, shut up Harry”.
‘They played drinking games together, once they had turned it down ‘Serpentbite and Black’, a combination of lager, cider and blackcurrant. Later this girl took out a big burp.
‘She was a bit of a tomboy but lovely to look at. Many men were crazy about her.
But despite Harry saying he feared he might be seen by locals after they first had sex in a field behind a pub, Frank says he personally saw nothing: ‘I never Haven’t seen Harry so much as kiss a girl. He had a lot of attention but he was always very careful about who he was seen with.
Frank, who runs the pub, said there was a particular woman in her mid-20s who Harry was close to. She was a party girl, very attractive and very flirtatious with him,’ he added
He also addressed the question of whether he was running the pub where the royal congress took place – widely believed by locals in the village of Sherston to this day.
Frank said: ‘The field behind the Rattlebone Inn would have been the perfect spot as there were no windows behind the building at the time and the grass behind it was tall.’
Frank said Harry and William started visiting Rattlebone with friends in April 2000, when Harry was studying at Eton College in Berkshire.
He said the boys and their friends stayed for lock-ins about six or seven times.
Frank, who now lives in Shropshire and works as a computer salesman, said Harry may have been royal but he behaved like any other loud 16-year-old.
Frank said: ‘Harry was a very nice kid in the beginning. He was polite and friendly and unlike some of his friends, he didn’t show off much.
Speaking of the woman Harry lost his virginity to, Harry wrote: ‘I turned her on quickly, after which she whacked my ass and sent me off’
‘He could make fun of himself. He never bought alcohol himself, but used to get drunk on pints of cider given to him by others.
He added that Harry referred to him as ‘Froggy’ almost immediately. The prince swears at her and orders her around.
‘To make it fun I made up a name for him and whenever he went a little too far I would say “Oi, shut up smelling ginger”.
‘Maybe it wasn’t very respectful, but he always fired the first shot.
‘One night I told her, William and his friends that the bar was closing and if they could all go.
‘William got up to leave, but Harry remained seated. He looked into my eyes and said “make me” with a grin on his face.
‘He was only 16 then and a lanky teenager and I’m 6ft 3, so I shrugged, walked up to his desk, picked him up and got him under my arm.
Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, Frank, 48, said: ‘Harry never lacked for female fans, even when he was just a boy’
‘I kicked the door open and made him sit outside and shouted “get out of my pub now”. At this point his police security team stood up, stunned, not believing what they were seeing.
‘To be honest, I was half joking and Harry took it exactly as it was meant. He was giggling when I was throwing him out.
‘Finally I let him and the others stay for half an hour extra. William told Harry when he returned to his seat “Be careful Frank, he’s French and remember what they did to their royals!”
Frank says that over time, Harry’s jovial demeanor changed to more dismissive and rude.
Frank said: ‘Both boys [William and Harry] He was always very cautious around women in pubs, especially when he was being watched by his security officers.
He said: ‘The last time I saw Harry, on a Sunday evening, he came into the pub with another guy who I didn’t really like. I was cocky though. I used to call him “Blondie” and when he first came over I asked him for ID because he looked so young. After that it was a standing joke that I would ask him to prove his age.
‘Harry was sitting by the pool table watching the match on television while a friend came up to the bar and ordered a couple of pints of lager.
‘I asked him for his ID as usual but that night he said, ‘Shut up and get on with your job’.
‘I told him not to talk to me like that and said I might refuse to serve him. It was simple light banter, and she had a drink and sat down with Harry. I could see them whispering and Harry turned and said “Oi Froggy, cheers” and raised his glass.
‘At first I dismissed it. Sometimes Harry would get drunk and say “Hey Froggy, get me a pint” and “Come here Froggy”. At first I felt a little offended but then I laughed at it.
‘That evening he seemed calm but I was not in the mood and he went too far.
He kept calling me Froojie so I told him to shut up.
‘As he went on calling me names, I could see him turning his head to smile at his friends, as if he was really clever.
‘It looked like he was enjoying being the center of attention.
‘I’m sure he thought it was really funny but it pissed me off because everyone was laughing and I thought he was trying to humiliate me. I had to leave to stop myself from saying something bad. I went out to the bar to cool off and when I came back they were gone. I felt bad that he made my customers laugh at me.’
‘I blocked him and he never returned. In fact I haven’t seen him since.
It wasn’t the first time Harry got into hot water for racially abusing someone.
In his memoir, the Duke recalled the time he had to apologize after footage emerged of him referring to Sandhurst colleague Ahmed Raza Khan as ‘our little p*** friend’.
He said he had used the word without malice after the recording, taken in 2006, was leaked three years later.
Harry said he contacted Ahmed directly and apologised. He said his partner told him he knew he was not racist and ‘nothing happened’.
Although the Duke wrote that ‘it happened’ and his friend’s apology made him feel even worse.
In his book, to be released in Britain next week, Harry blasts his brother and the Duchess of Cambridge for wearing an infamous Nazi fancy dress outfit to a party in 2005.
He claimed he was considering either a Nazi uniform or a pilot’s outfit at a ‘native and colonial’ themed event and called his brother and sister-in-law for their opinion.
Harry wrote: ‘I rang Willie and Kate, asked what they thought. Nazi uniform, he said.
‘ they both shouted. Worse than Willie’s leotard outfit! Far more funny! Which, again, was the point.
