The Duke of Edinburgh told Charles to always look a woman in the eyes and never, ever let your eyes drop at all. This is because if a picture was taken at that exact moment, it would look like he was ogling her chest. Actor, comedian and writer Mr Fry revealed this during an episode of The Graham Norton Show.
Chat show host Graham Norton had brought up a picture of Stephen Fry in a line-up with the Spice Girls, meeting the Prince of Wales.
He joked that everyone seemed “very distracted” by Geri Halliwell, who was wearing a low-cut top, adding that Charles was “pointing at her absent-mindedly”.
Mr Fry said: “He did tell me ‒ I think it’s ok to repeat this ‒ the Prince of Wales did tell me once that the best piece of advice his father had ever given him was: when you’re doing a lineup and there are women, always look only into their eyes.
“Don’t for a second let your eyes drop to their chest because that is when the photograph goes off.
“And if you look, he’s not looking down.
“All the rest of us, even us gay boys, are looking down.”
Mr Fry also described an awkward moment when Emma Bunton asked Charles whether he had a “Prince Albert”, which is a genital piercing for men.
Charles did not seem to know what it was and got very confused, thinking Baby Spice must be referring to his great-great-great grandfather Prince Albert, the consort to Queen Victoria.
In the end, Mr Fry himself had to explain to the prince what she meant.
He told Mr Norton in 2017: “There was a special show for the 50th birthday of the Prince of Wales, Prince Charles and [The Spice Girls] were on it and I was MC-ing it or whatever it was, hosting it.
“And there was a lineup afterwards and they didn’t care, that was all girl power, you know.
“And the Prince of Wales was all ‘Wonderful, lovely, thank you so much’.

“And he got to them and the first thing Emma Bunton said to him was: ‘Oh sir, sir, hi miss sir, do you have a Prince Albert?’
“And he said, ‘Yes, I’m his great-great-great grandson, yes, Prince Albert’ and she said ‘No, do you have one?’
“And he said, ‘Well he was the husband of Queen Victoria..’
“So he looked at me completely baffled and he didn’t know what a Prince Albert was.”
Mr Fry said he explained to him that a Prince Albert is a “piece of intimate jewellery”.
Charles reportedly gestured to his chest questioningly, and Mr Fry said: “No, further south.”
The audience guffawed at the anecdote.
Charles reportedly said: “Oh my heavens” and Mr Fry joked: “He had to have a lie down I think.”
He added that he admired the “spunk” of the Spice Girls to ask a question like that.
Elton John, who was also a guest on the show, commented that it was “an icebreaker”.
