Prince Andrews problems compounded after new picture with Ghislaine Maxwell surfaces

Prince Andrew's problems were compounded when a British newspaper published one of his pictures taken in 2002 with  former US president Bill Clinton, Hollywood star Kevin Spacy and Ghislaine Maxwell  during a tour of Buckingham Palace.

The picture surfaced after just hours after Andrew said he has no recollection of a palace tour with Maxwell.

In the  photo, the disgraced socialite is seen showing former US president Bill Clinton and Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey around Buckingham Palace.

The picture  obtained by The Telegraph shows Andrew in the Queen’s official residence with Maxwell.

In the background is Bill Clinton, the former US president who was being given a tour of the palace with Kevin Spacey, the Oscar-winning actor whose reputation has since been shredded over allegations of sexual misconduct and harassment.

A member of the tour party said: “Ghislaine Maxwell was the one who led us into Buckingham Palace. We walked in the main gates and Ghislaine showed us where we needed to be. She knew her way around this area of the palace. Ghislaine was described to me [as] an ex-girlfriend of Prince Andrew’s.”

The second son of Queen Elizabeth had said he had “no recollection” of being at the bash.

According to the Telegraph, VIPs were given a tour of Buckingham Palace by the Duke of York.

The newspaper said that the guests were told that Ghislaine Maxwell was accompanying them because she was Prince Andrew's ex-girlfriend.

Andrew faces a US civil action over sexual assault allegations - claims he has consistently denied.

In court documents filed as part of her civil case against Prince Andrew, Virginia Giuffre said she was the victim of sex trafficking and abuse by the late billionaire financier, Epstein.

Ms Giuffre, now 38, filed a civil case in New York in August 2021 under the state's Child Victims Act, which allows survivors of childhood sexual abuse to pursue a case which otherwise would have been barred because too much time had passed.
