Prince Harry's X-rated moment savaged by Jimmy Kimmel: 'Disgusting'
The TV show host divided fans on social media for his roasting.
US talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has savaged Prince Harry after the royal spoke about his injured penis in his best-selling memoir Spare. The Duke of Sussex shared the story of how he ended up with a "frost nipped" penis after a trip to the North Pole for a charity walk.
In the book, Harry recalls the painful incident, saying he was left feeling "tender" after the incident, and before he was able to seek medical attention, a friend suggested an at-home treatment.
"My penis was oscillating between extremely sensitive and borderline traumatised," he writes, before adding the friend told him to put an Elizabeth Arden cream "down there".
"My mum used that on her lips. You want me to put that on my todger?" he questioned his friend, who responded, "It works, Harry. Trust me."
While it wasn't specified, many believe it to be cult favourite Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream.

When Harry opened the tube, the smell immediately transported him to childhood and reminded him of his mother.
"I felt as if my mother was right there in the room. Then I took a smidge and applied it … down there," he added.
Jimmy found the story funny enough to create a mock children's book from the tale, which he called The Prince and the Penis.
"The story of Prince Harold and his frozen yoghurt slinger is so popular they’re now releasing a version for kids, a twist on The Princess and the Pea," he told the audience jokingly, showing off the fake book that featured a cartoon Prince Harry and a penis wearing a jacket, beanie and mittens.
"At the chilly North Pole, a silly young codger took a walk in the snow, and froze his wee todger," Jimmy read aloud. "The skin was discoloured, all purple and white. When Harry peered down, ‘twas a terrible fright.
"'Oh mummy, oh mummy!' He cried with a scream, and from then on up high, she appeared with some cream."
A cartoon version of Princess Diana then appears in the clouds, telling Harry, "My poor little prince, put this cream on your willy. It will lessen the ache and make it less chilly."
The host continued, "'But mummy, did you not put this on your lips?'"

"'Oh yes, my dear boy, and also my nips, but do not delay or your knob be destroyed.'"
Thankfully, the story has a happy ending with the cartoon Harry telling his mum, "You rescued the snake that lives under my tummy!"
Jimmy joked, "And everyone lived happily ever after."
Many social media users were divided and flooded the video on Twitter to either support or slam Jimmy, with one user joking, "Can I buy a copy?"
"So mature," another added sarcastically, while a third said, "This was horrifyingly hilarious."
"That goes way too far! Why? Disgusting Jimmy," someone else said. "I thought you had far more class than this. Not impressed."
"Ah low hanging fruit and cheap thrills. Congratulations on grabbing onto both of them," someone else sarcastically wrote.
