Ghislaine Maxwell and Epstein seen at the Queen’s log cabin in new photos shown to court

US

Newly released pictures chart Ghislaine Maxwell’s relationship with disgraced billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, with one image showing them at the Queen’s log cabin.

Released by the US Department of Justice as part of proceedings against the British socialite, the photos show the extent of Maxwell’s closeness with Epstein, who killed himself in 2019, aged 66, in a Manhattan jail cell while awaiting sex-trafficking charges.

Maxwell, 59, is now on trial in New York, accused of crimes including luring girls as young as 14 to be sexually abused by Epstein at his properties in New York City, Florida and New Mexico, and at her own London residence, between 1994 and 1997.

One image appears to show Maxwell and Epstein at the Queen’s log cabin on the Balmoral Estate.

Maxwell denies the charges, with her defence team saying she is being used as a “scapegoat” for Epstein’s crimes.

Epstein’s abuse is said to have centred on sexualised massages, which took place as often as three times a day.

In one image, a Word document was used to create an advert for a massage therapist.

The metadata appears to show it was created by Maxwell, and asks: “Are you a massage therapist?? Work in Palm Beach home. Excellent pay. Mostly weekends.”
