Prince Harry stopped by the set of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to talk about his new book, Spare. Following a powerful conversation about loss and trauma, the discussion took a surprising and hilarious turn when Colbert asked about the time the Duke of Sussex almost froze his penis off.

Harry explained that he got “frostnip” on his “todger” as a result of not being properly clothed during a hike to the North Pole. “These amazing veterans were doing a walk to the North Pole, they had all the training, I had none,” he told Colbert. “I turned up thinking, how bad can this be? It’s only the North Pole, it’s only minus 35 degrees.”

While he was fully dressed in all the typical winter excursion gear, he was missing one major item needed to shield the royal jewels from the cold: a “cock pillow.” It was a lesson he learned and corrected on his trip to the South Pole so that his “man-piece, my johnson, my Wilson, my todger, my willy,” stayed warm and cozy.

However, Harry wasn’t so lucky the first time. As Harry explained, while he was walking he wasn’t aware of the problem. That’s because his royal member was only protected by one or two layers of clothing, causing it to go numb, so he didn’t feel the pain or the trouble escalating. “When you’re walking you’re hot and you’re trying not to sweat because the sweat freezes and once it’s numb you don’t know the pain,” he added.

It took weeks for him to realize something was seriously wrong. There was “nothing visible, nothing obvious, it was a slow deteriorating situation,” he explained, much to Colbert’s shocked delight.

While he didn’t elaborate on what was happening on the show, he did offer a few more details in his book.“Upon arriving home I’d been horrified to discover that my nether regions were frost nipped,” he writes, along with his ears and cheeks. “While the ears and cheeks were already healing, the todger wasn’t. It was becoming more of an issue by the day,” he continued. He tried putting Elizabeth Arden cream on the affected member but when it didn’t improve he finally went to the doctor.

That did the trick! When asked by Colbert how his penis is doing today, Harry gave the host two enthusiastic thumbs up.
