The ‘stunt’ in the Maxwell family’s bathroom supposed to prove Prince Andrew’s ‘innocence’ is embarrassing, friends say

Friends of Virginia Roberts expressed contempt last night over a bizarre ‘stunt’ that would prove Prince Andrew has ‘innocence’ of alleged sexual crimes against her.

A front-page photo of the Daily Telegraph showed a man and woman lying in a bath fully clothed in the former London home of convicted child sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell, wearing makeshift masks showing the faces of the Prince and his accuser.

It was published under the headline: ‘The photo that “clears Duke” about bath sex’ and allegedly disproves Mrs Roberts’ account that the Prince had engaged in intimate acts with her in the confined space. Ghislaine’s brother Ian told the paper that the photo, taken by two of his sister’s acquaintances, “conclusively shows that the bath is too small for any kind of sex pleasure.”

Ms Roberts has claimed that the Duke licked her toes in the bath before they had sex in the bedroom in 2001, when she was 17.

A front-page photo of the Daily Telegraph showed a man and woman lying in a bath fully clothed in the former London home of convicted child sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell, wearing makeshift masks showing the faces of the Prince and his accuser.

She claimed she was forced to have sex with Andrew by convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein — who died in 2019 while awaiting trial for child trafficking — and his close friend, Ghislaine Maxwell. The Duke has repeatedly and vehemently denied Mrs Roberts’ claims.

A source connected to Ms Roberts, who now goes by her married surname Giuffre, told The Mail on Sunday last night: ‘If this embarrassing stunt is the best Maxwell’s side can do in defense of Prince Andrew, then it’s laughable.

“It’s an abhorrent attempt to discredit a victim of sexual abuse and would be laughable if it weren’t so hurtful. Moreover, they have their facts completely wrong. Virginia never said they had sex in the bath.’ Attorney Lisa Bloom, who represented several victims of Epstein and Maxwell’s sex trafficking web, added, “What a surreal, bizarre photo. It proves nothing.

“Virginia said she and Andrew were taking a bath. The photo shows that two full size people can fit in the bath. Virginia said Andrew started playing with her feet in the tub. The photo shows that it certainly could.

Virginia said she and Andrew then went to the bedroom where the sexual activity took place. Nothing in the photo disproves that.

Ghislaine and her supporters must be desperate. Instead of continuing to attack victims, she should apologize for the pain she has caused so many.”

And attorney Spencer Kuvin, who also represented Maxwell and Epstein’s victims, said, “It’s absurd. If they want to know how two people can have sex in a bathtub, all they have to do is google it on the internet. This halfhearted attempt (to discredit Virginia) is laughable.”

In a 2011 interview, Ms Roberts claimed that she and the Duke got into the bath where ‘he started licking my toes’ before going to the bedroom, a story she repeated in a 2019 interview with BBC’s Panorama, saying: ‘ There was a bath and it started there and then led to the bedroom.’

In her unpublished memoir, The Billionaire’s Playboy Club—which she admitted was partially fictionalized—she wrote of taking a bath: “We kissed and touched before being dipped in the hot water… he worshiped my young body, especially my feet, stroking my toes and licking my arches.’

After drying off, they moved into a nearby bedroom “for the longest ten minutes of my life.”

An old friend of Mrs. Roberts said, “The memoir was never accepted in evidence by the judge because it was never presented by Virginia as a factual account of her experience. Some of it is fictionalized.

‘But that’s aside. This is victim shaming at its worst. How arrogant do you have to be to think that a photo like that will help your cause in any way?’

Last night Ms Roberts’ lawyers declined to comment, but a source close to her said: ‘This feels like a coordinated attempt to discredit her, but the truth is the truth. Virginia has consistently told the truth about Prince Andrew and no stunted photo will change that.”

Meanwhile, a smiling Prince Andrew, 62, was photographed driving a Range Rover in the grounds of Windsor Castle yesterday and appeared carefree as he later rode through the castle grounds on horseback.

It emerged last week that he had told friends a ‘mysterious development’ will restore his disgraced reputation in the coming months, and that he intends to pursue the multimillion-pound settlement he struck with Ms Roberts last year. fight.
