Peter Crouch has revealed that Prince Harry once cheekily asked him how he managed to pull his stunning wife Abby Clancy. It's a question we've all pondered, Pete.
Speaking to Jack Whitehall, who was standing in for the regular host on The Graham Norton Show, the Burnley striker explained that Harry had asked: "How did you bag Abbey?"
Thinking back on the bizarre encounter, Crouch added: "That was pre-Meghan and I didn't know how to respond, but now I could come back to him with the same question!"

He also shared the story behind the day he was asked 'what would you be if you weren't a footballer?' – to which he famously replied: "A virgin." Comedy genius, to be fair.
"It had been a really long day of interviews," he told Jack on the show. "And I had been asked the same questions over and over again, so I thought I would have a bit of fun. Ten years on and people are still talking about it!"
He's discussed the Prince Harry incident before, of course – speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live last year, he said: "I told Abbey – she was buzzing.
"He was dissing me, he was laughing his head off, then walked off. I was like: 'Did that just happen?'"
Crouchy met Abbey all the way back in 2006, after meeting in a bar where she worked as a waitress.
The pair tied the knot in 2011 and have three children together, with another little one on the way.
In typical Crouch-style, he chose to share the good news back in January by posting a photo of Abbey in a bikini with a baby bump, writing: "Baby no 4 on the way I blame Abbey Clancy for looking like this."
Praising her husband in an interview in 2017, Abbey said: "He's such a capable dad, he's unbelievable. Since day one, he's been so hands-on – it's like she's got two mums.
"He's better than me. I have such horrific pregnancies. I'm so ill for nine months, throw up every day, so sick. But my births are amazing."
