Prince’s 5.50am email to Maxwell ‘to ask you about Vir­ginia Roberts’

Scottish Daily Mail - - Andrew’s New Humiliatio­n -

PRINCE An­drew ap­proached pae­dophile Jef­frey Ep­stein’s ‘fixer’ Ghis­laine Maxwell for in­for­ma­tion about Vir­ginia Roberts years af­ter his ac­cuser first made al­le­ga­tions about him, leaked emails show.

In one mes­sage, timed at 5.50am on Jan­uary 3, 2015, the prince asked the so­cialite daugh­ter of news­pa­per ty­coon Robert Maxwell whether she was free for a dis­cus­sion about Miss Roberts.

He wrote: ‘Let me know when we can talk. Got some spe­cific ques­tions to ask you about Vir­ginia Roberts.’ In her re­ply, seen by BBC Panorama, Miss Maxwell says: ‘Have some info – call me when you have a mo­ment.’

Only a day be­fore the mes­sage about Miss Roberts,

Miss Maxwell wrote An­drew a cryp­tic email say­ing: ‘Can’t be­lieve bb was left in the cold.’

She signed the mes­sage with a smi­ley face emoji, along­side the ini­tial ‘G’ and a kiss. It is not clear to whom ‘bb’ refers.

The cor­re­spon­dence is the lat­est em­bar­rass­ing blow for An­drew, high­light­ing his ties with Miss Maxwell at least four years af­ter his friend­ship with Ep­stein al­legedly ended in 2010. It also took place four years af­ter Miss Roberts first went public with ac­cu­sa­tions against the royal in 2011.

Ep­stein’s vic­tims have claimed Miss Maxwell was at the heart of his abuse net­work, al­legedly aid­ing the traffickin­g of women at his prop­er­ties across the world.

Em­bar­rass­ing: Emails show that early on Jan­uary 3, 2015, Prince An­drew got in touch with Ghis­laine Maxwell say­ing he had ‘spe­cific ques­tions’ to ask about Vir­ginia Roberts. Ep­stein’s ‘fixer’ replied that he should get in touch with her when he had a mo­ment as she had ‘some info’
