Prince Harry apparently became nostalgic for his mother, the late Princess Diana, when he applied skin cream to his frostbitten genitalia following a fundraising trip to the North Pole, an audiobook clip posted Jan. 11 on Twitter shows.

Harry said someone recommended he apply Elizabeth Arden skin cream on the affected area. “[M]y mum used that on her lips, you want me to put that on my todger?” he asked in response, according to his narration.

“The minute I opened it, the smell transported me through time. I felt as if my mother was right there in the room,” he said. The clip has received 15.3 million views on Twitter at the time of writing, with one user calling the memoir “a Freudian nightmare.”

Elizabeth Arden began trending on social media after the clip went viral, according to the Mirror.

“You’ve heard all the buzz about plumping Hyaluronic Acid, but did you know it’s extremely helpful during the colder months?” the brand tweeted one day before the release of “Spare,” along with a link to buy one of its products.

“Can you confirm if this will help with a freezing todger?? Prince Harry says it does??” one user replied to the brand’s tweet.

Elizabeth Arden is a Switzerland-based international skincare and fragrance company owned by consumer products firm Revlon. Prince Harry did not disclose who exactly suggested he use the Elizabeth Arden cream on his genitalia. (RELATED: Prince Harry Becomes Most Unpopular Royal In Britain)

“Spare” hit shelves Jan. 10. A record-breaking 1.4 million copies of the English language edition were sold in the memoir’s first day of publication, Penguin Random House told CNN.

Harry’s revelations about his young adult experiences and alleged internal fighting between members of the British royal family generated widespread publicity before his memoir officially went on sale.
