Prince Harry, 38, tells how a friend recommended he use the product on the injured site after returning from a trip to the North Pole for his brother Prince William’s wedding.

Prince Harry has made readers wince after telling that after his trip to the North Pole in 2011, he applied an Elizabeth Arden cream worn by his late mother to his frozen penis.

Harry says he had no success with home remedies to cure his ailment when a friend suggested he use the Elizabeth Arden formula.

“My mom used that on her lips. Do you want me to put that on my todger?’ he said.

After his friend assured him that the cream worked, Harry bought himself a tube and said the smell of it took him back to his childhood, when his mother was alive.

“I felt like my mom was right there in the room. Then I took a swipe and applied it… down there,” he recalled.

Readers who discovered this moment of Harry’s explosive memoir called it a “Freudian nightmare.”

“PS NO mom wants to be ‘there in the room! applying 8 o’clock cream ahem’ down there,” one wrote.

“I need therapy after hearing this,” said another.

“Talk about a member of the royal family,” one of them joked.

“My Prince Wrote A Porno,” wrote another, referring to the comedy podcast My Dad Wrote A Porno.”

The reaction to this particular clip caused ‘Elizabeth Arden’ to become popular on UK Twitter, with jokes about the scene and the brand populating the social media platform.

“If you think you’re having a bad day, think about the social media manager at @ElizabethArden, who just transitioned from working at a global beauty company to a premium nob cream company in the last few hours,” said a

“I honestly think if the Queen were alive reading about Prince Harry thinking about his late mother while using Elizabeth Arden on his frozen c*** would have killed her,” one wrote.

The book, filled with explosive revelations about Prince Harry and the royal family, has dominated public conversation since it was released on Tuesday.

Prince Harry’s ghostwriter today defended Spare against damaging claims of inaccuracy and historical errors, stressing that “unintentional errors” are common in memoirs where “the line between memory and fact is blurred.”

JR Moehringer, who has also written autobiographies for Andre Agassi and Nike co-founder Phil Knight, defended the book he was reportedly paid $1 million to write.

Sharing an excerpt from Harry’s book, highlighting that the exiled prince himself sometimes admits he wasn’t sure about all the details he shares, often blaming childhood trauma. But in the same book he also emphasizes: ‘It is important that history is right’.

Mr Moehringer tweeted Harry’s words last night: “Whatever the cause, my memory is my memory… there is as much truth in what I remember and how I remember it as there is in so-called objective facts.”

He also tweeted a quote from Mary Karr, author of The Art of Memoir, which said, “The line between memory and fact is blurred, between interpretation and fact. There are unintentional errors of that kind from the wazoo.”

Harry has been accused of a litany of factual errors, including claiming descent from King Henry VI, saying he was given an XBox by his mother before they were manufactured, and claiming Meghan Markle’s father had a plane ticket between Mexico and London purchased on Air New Zealand, which does not fly that route.

And this week more errors surfaced, including his recollection of the Queen Mother’s funeral, an anecdote in which he criticized his stepmother Camilla and British high street giant TK Maxx even corrected another claim in the bombshell book in which he describes shopping in the store next to Kensington Palace with £200 to buy as much as possible in 15 minutes.
