Prince Andrew had 'intimate relationship' with Ghislaine Maxwell

The Duke of York's relationship with the British socialite is coming under intense

scrutiny after she was sentenced to 20 years in prison for sex trafficking young girls for

billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Paul Page, who worked as a royal protection

officer for six years from 1998 to 2004, claimed Maxwell had "unrestricted access" to

Buckingham Palace with police told to wave her in when she arrived to visit Andrew's apartments.

Mr Page told the Sun: "She was allowed to enter and exit the Palace night and day at will.

"Myself and my other colleagues formed the opinion they were in some sort of relationship.

"We would wave her in and she would go straight to the quad and straight up to the Duke of York's apartments.

"She had access like no other individual outside the Royal Family. She was on another level."
