The never-before-seen photograph shows the pair at the Queen’s Scottish cabin, where Prince Andrew reportedly hosted Maxwell and Epstein in 1999.
The snapshot shows the pair lounging on a bench on the Queen’s porch. Maxwell looks relaxed, leaning against Epstein with her arm resting on his leg.

A trove of unseen photographs were released this week, as prosecutors hope to exhibit the intimate relationship between the 59-year-old former socialite and billionaire pedophile, whom they say were ‘partners in crime.’
Prosecutors look to bolster their argument that the pair were so close, it stood to reason Maxwell participated in Epstein’s abuse of underage girls from 1994 to 2004.
Maxwell faces six charges related to recruiting and grooming four underage girls, some as young as 14, for her once-boyfriend, Epstein. She has denied all charges.
Throughout Maxwell’s trial, powerful men who rode in Epstein’s inner-circle have been named, including Prince Andrew, who retired from royal life due to his connection to Epstein.

The Duke of York stepped back from public life in 2019, which was when he first spoke publicly about his friendship with Epstein and allegations that he was involved in Epstein’s child sex-trafficking scheme.
Virginia Roberts Giuffre claims she was trafficked by Maxwell, and forced to have sex with Prince Andrew three separate times when she was 17-years-old.
Giuffre is not testifying in Maxwell’s trial, though other witnesses have recalled meeting her at Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion, as well as aboard Epstein’s private jet.
She has also filed a separate civil case against the Duke, who denies any involvement with her.
Other photos released by prosecutors this week show trips taken by Epstein and Maxwell to different parts of Europe, ski resorts, on private jets and on yachts.
The new photos were entered into evidence Tuesday, and had been discovered during an FBI raid of Epstein’s Manhattan home in 2019, FBI analyst Kimberly Meder told the court.
Three of the photographs show Maxwell providing Epstein a seemingly sensual foot massage while aboard a private jet.
Other newly released photos show the massage room where Epstein allegedly sexually abused young girls. Those images show various bottles of lotion and towels on top of the massage table.
Epstein died by suicide in a Manhattan jail cell before he could stand trial on sex abuse charges.
Two years after Epstein’s death behind bars, a 12-person jury plus six alternates were picked to determine whether Maxwell acted as Epstein’s accomplice, or as a puppet, which is what her attorneys claim.
