A former royal protection officer from Buckingham Palace says he suspected Ghislaine Maxwell and Prince Andrew were having an “intimate relationship”, according to a new documentary.

Ghislaine Maxwell participates in the VIP Evening of Conversation for the Women's Brain Health Initiative, moderated by Tina Brown at Spring Studios on October 18, 2016 in New York City.

  • A former Buckingham Palace official claimed that Ghislaine Maxwell would visit several times a day.

  • Queen Elizabeth II stripped Prince Andrew of his royal patronages and military titles on Friday.

  • Andrew will have to defend himself against a sexual assault lawsuit as a private citizen.

Former United States Secretary of Defense Paul Page said in his first television interview that Buckingham Palace staff suspected Prince Andrew and Ghislaine Maxwell of having an “intimate relationship”.

“From the way she was allowed to walk in and out of the palace, at will, we realized … suspicion that she may have had an intimate relationship with Prince Andrew,” Page claimed the new iTV documentary. “Ghislaine, Prince Andrew and the Pedophile.” “A colleague of mine remembered that she came in four times in one day from morning to night – she kept coming in and out, in and out …”

The Duke of Yorks legal tensions have grown after December judgment of Maxwell, who was found guilty in five of six charges against her of sex trafficking.

On Friday, Queen Elizabeth II held a personal meeting with her son to inform him that he will be deprived of his royal patronage and military titles as a result of the sexual assault case brought by Jeffrey Epstein prosecutor Virginia Giuffre, who forced him to defend himself as a private citizen.

The castle’s decision came one day after another federal judge in New York dismissed an attempt by Prince Andrew to dismiss the lawsuit. Since 2015 has Giuffre has claimed that Epstein forced her to have sex as a minor with Prince Andrew in his mansion in New York, in London and on Epstein’s private island in the US Virgin Islands in 2001.

Andrew has denied all of Giuffre’s allegations and denied ever having met her. So have his lawyers fought bitterly against her lawsuit, arguing that a 2009 settlement between Epstein and Giuffre protects him from liability and that Giuffre has no jurisdiction to sue.

Although Giuffre was not called to testify during Maxwell’s trial, Prince Andrew was mentioned by name in court. a Maxwell prosecutor only identified as “Jane” and Epstein pilot Larry Visoski both testified that they had seen the Duke of York travel on the financier’s private jet.

Prince Andrew has also issued statements that could be used against him if the Giuffre case continues. In a broad sense BBC interview in 2019, he described having a close friendship with Maxwell and said their relationship was how he became acquainted with Epstein.

The Duke of York’s press office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
