Pub boss who Prince Harry branded a 'f***ing frog' says females would 'throw ... trends now
A pub manager who claimed Prince Harry branded him a 'f***ing frog' has told how female admirers would 'throw themselves' at the young Royal - and believes a 'party girl in her mid-20s' was the person he lost his virginity to in a field behind the pub.
Franck Ortet ran The Rattlebone Inn near King Charles' Highgrove home in Gloucestershire during the years when young princes Harry and William enjoyed wild drinking sessions there with friends.
Franck, who is French, famously banned Harry from the pub when he was 16 after the drunken young Royal got into a slanging match when he was refused alcohol and is said to have branded Franck a 'f***ing frog'.
The Duke of Sussex recalled his teenage years in his memoirs 'Spare' and revealed how he lost his virginity to a horse-loving older woman who treated him 'like a young stallion' and slapped his bottom after they'd finished sex behind a pub.

'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,' he wrote.
Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, Franck, 48, said: 'Harry was never short of female admirers even though he was just a boy. He was a Royal prince so naturally women would be batting their eyelashes at him and William all the time.
'Both boys were always very cautious around women in the pub, particularly as their protection officers would be watching on.'
Franck, originally from Biarritz in France but now living in Shropshire, explained that there was one woman he believes was the one who took Harry's virginity.

He said: 'There was one particular woman in her mid-20s who was close to Harry. 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 shot him down once in the pub when he was trying to act big. She just turned to him and said "Oh do shut up Harry".
'They used to play drinking games together, one time they took it in turns to down a 'snakebite and black' a combination of lager, cider and blackcurrant. Afterwards this girl let out a huge burp.
'She was a bit of a tomboy but lovely looking. A lot of men were fond of her.'
But despite Harry saying he feared he may have been spotted by locals as he had sex for the first time in a field behind a pub, Franck says he personally saw nothing: ' I never saw Harry so much as kiss a girl. He had a lot of attention but was always very careful with who he was seen with.'

He also addressed the question of whether the pub he ran was the one where the royal congress took place - widely believed by locals in the village of Sherston to this day.
Franck said: 'The field at the back of the Rattlebone Inn would've been the perfect spot as back then there were no windows at the rear of the building and the grass in the field behind it was fairly long.'
Franck said Harry and William started going with friends to the Rattlebone in April 2000 while Harry was studying at Eton College in Berkshire.
He said the boys and their friends stayed for lock-ins about six or seven times.
Franck, 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 kid.
Franck said: 'Harry was a really nice kid to begin with. He was polite and
