A former royal cop is speaking out to claim that Ghislaine Maxwell, the alleged former madam of the late billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, had an “intimate relationship” with Prince Andrew, the son of Queen Elizabeth.
Paul Page, who worked as a protection officer for the royal family at Buckingham Palace from 1998 until 2004, told The Sun that Maxwell had “unrestricted access” to Andrew’s apartments, adding that he would often see her coming and going from there.
“She was allowed to enter and exit the Palace night and day at will,” Page alleged. “Myself and my other colleagues formed the opinion they were in some sort of relationship.”
It was already known that Andrew and Maxwell were old friends, and it’s understood that she’s the one who introduced the royal to Epstein. Page went on to recall seeing Andrew and Maxwell have an “intimate picnic” on the grounds of Buckingham Palace.
“It was right outside The Queen’s bedroom window,” Page said. “So from that point on, I was under the opinion they had some form of intimate relationship.”
Page even claimed that he and his colleagues were told never to put Maxwell’s name in the visitor’s log at the palace, which he described as being “highly unusual.”
“We assumed they didn’t want any evidence of her visiting the palace, perhaps because she was Robert Maxwell’s daughter – it wouldn’t have been a good look,” he stated.
Page was referring to the fact that Maxwell’s father Robert was a disgraced newspaper magnate who was also a former Labour MP and the owner of Oxford United. He died mysteriously in November of 1991, when he was found dead floating in the water near his yacht off the Canary Islands. Afterwards, it was revealed that he had stolen hundreds of millions of pounds from pension funds, using this money to fund his own companies.
“We would wave her in and she would go straight to the quad and straight up to the Duke of York’s apartments,” Page said. “She had access like no other individual outside the Royal Family. She was on another level.”
Page then said that if Maxwell was denied access, officers would be “screamed and shouted at” by Andrew.
When asked what he remembers about Maxwell, Page described her as “very aloof.”
“She didn’t say anything, she wouldn’t say hello, just look at us and then look away,” he recalled. “Not a friendly person – I would almost say she looked down on us.”
Maxwell was recently sentenced to twenty years in prison on charges relating to her allegedly grooming young girls for sex with Epstein, and sometimes participating in the abuse herself.
Virginia Roberts Giuffre, one of Epstein’s alleged victims, has claimed that she was forced to have sex with Andrew on multiple occasions when she was an underage 17 year-old girl. While Andrew has yet to face any charges for these claims, he’s been forced to step away from royal life over the controversy.
Epstein allegedly committed suicide in prison back in August of 2019 while awaiting trial on his own sex crime charges. Maxwell has already filed to appeal both her conviction and sentence.
