The queen’s second son stepped down from royal duty in 2019 following questions about his friendship with billionaire pedophile Jerffery Epstein.
The Duke has been accused of failing to assist US prosecutors in their investigation of Epstein and the financier Maxwell.
Maxwell, who was Epstein’s longtime associate and former girlfriend, is facing new allegations of conspiracy over sex trafficking and sex trafficking from a minor in the count of eight, as well as previous charges including perjury.
An amended charge against Maxwell earlier this week now covers alleged crimes stretching from 1994 to 2004 in New York and Florida, including allegations that she paid the girl, known as Minor Victim-4, hundreds of dollars for every sexual act involving Epstein. The girl was 14 when nursing began, the charges said.

She had previously pleaded not guilty to helping Epstein recruit and care for three teenage girls for sex between 1994 and 1997 in New York. Maxwell, 59, has been in a Brooklyn prison since her arrest last July.
The time frame of the new allegations has been extended to between 1994 and “at least” 2004, covering the period when Epstein interacted with powerful men such as Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton.
During this time, Prince Andrew befriended Epstein and reportedly had sex with one of his victims, Virginia Roberts, three times, allegations the Duke denies.
Prince Andrew’s sex prosecutor could testify about him at trial because the original photo of the Duke of York with his arm around Virginia Giuffre’s waist at Maxwell’s house was requested in 2001.

It is thought that Ms. Giuffre, 37, who currently lives in Australia with her husband and three children, could testify in addition to victims Maria and Annie Farmer.
Mrs. McCawley said, “There is simply no reason why, if the farmers and Mrs. Giuffre eventually testify and these items prove to be relevant and admissible, then these items cannot be presented for inspection at the trial.”
Earlier this month, Prince Andrew’s prosecutor, Ms. Giuffre, said Buckingham Palace should be “ all hanging ashamed ” in the wake of the interview with Harry and Meghan.

Giuffre, who claims she was used by Prince Andrew for sex after being trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein when she was only 17, spoke out on Twitter in support of the Sussexes following their explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
She compared the couple’s treatment to that of the Duke of York, who vehemently denies Giuffre’s claims.
She said, ‘Well, at least we know who #meganandharry is talking about when they say #BuckinghamPalace & #TheFirm protected other royals but wouldn’t protect them and their newborn baby #Archie.
Ghislaine Maxwell was charged with two new counts of conspiracy over sex trafficking and sex trafficking of a minor
According to a new charge, Maxwell paid the girl hundreds of dollars to give Jeffrey Epstein sexual massages and even sent her lingerie
It is believed that Ms. Giuffre (pictured), 37, who currently lives in Australia with her husband and three children, can testify alongside the victims Maria and Annie Farmer.
“They should all hang their heads in shame.”
Giuffre claims she was a victim of Epstein and claimed she had sex with Prince Andrew at the age of 17 while being traded by the late financier.
Prince Andrew has vehemently denied the claims.
Prince Andrew’s relationship with Epstein has been called into question, and he was forced to step back as a working member of the royal family after a BBC interview with a car accident in 2019.
