Ex-Palace Official: Prince Andrew & Ghislaine Maxwell Were Hiding a 'Dirty Secret'
Former Buckingham Palace guard blows whistle on frequent visits from child sex trafficker
A former Buckingham Palace official has blown the whistle on Prince Andrew to reveal that the Queen's son was hiding a "dirty secret" with now-convicted child sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell.
Paul Page, a former Palace guard, has spoken out to disclose that Andrew received frequent visits from Maxwell - the sex trafficking accomplice of deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
According to Page, Palace officials "suspected" the pair had a "dirty secret" due to the frequency of the visits Andrew received from the underage girl procurer.
Page says that Maxwell was continually “in and out” of Buckingham Palace at one time.
Page lifted the lid on their relationship as part of a documentary titled “Ghislaine, Prince Andrew and the Pedophile,” which aired Tuesday on Britain’s ITV.
He dated the era of Maxwell’s comings and goings as occurring in 2001.
2001 is the same year that Andrew is immortalized in a photo (above) with Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who has alleged she was raped by the prince while underage, at Maxwell’s behest.
Prince Andrew has denied the allegation.
"From the way she was allowed to enter and exit the palace at will, we realized — suspected — that she may have had an intimate relationship with Prince Andrew,” Page said.
"A colleague of mine remembered her coming in four times in one day.
"She kept coming in and out, in and out."
Page is not the only one to plumb the depths of the relationship between the prince and Maxwell, according to the New York Post.
A banker friend of Maxwell’s who socialized with the now-disgraced group shared the sentiment.
"I got the sense that Prince Andrew and Ghislaine had probably been girlfriend and boyfriend in the past,” banker Euan Rellie said in the documentary, according to the UK’s Telegraph.
"They had an easy warmth around each other,” he said.
Rellie recalled being invited to a dinner party at Epstein’s New York mansion by Maxwell, who allegedly said the party was “for my friend Prince Andrew.”
"She described Andrew as being her friend, not Jeffrey’s,” Rellie recalled.
In a bit of theater, ITV’s Ranvir Singh is shown in the documentary dialing a number she said was in a black book of numbers belonging to Epstein and Maxwell.
According to ITV, the entry was for “Duke of York” with a Buckingham Palace address, as well as others frequented by the royal family.
"Hello, I think this might be Prince Andrew,” Singh said on camera, before playing it to the hilt by leaving a message.
"We found your number on the little black book and we’d like to have a chat with you,” she said.
Despite the prince’s denial of Giuffre’s allegations, he was recently stripped of his royal title.
