Ghislaine Maxwell allegedly targeted three young women to target men at a party in 2000 after the premiere of a movie attended by Prince Charles, allegedly.
The suspect in the child sex trade, 59, is seen in a recent photo sipping a drink as the three girls surround a city realtor and his friend.
The photo, obtained by The Sun on Sunday, was taken at the Red Cube nightclub in London on November 22, 2000, during a party after the screening of Charlie’s Angels.
On the same night, next to Odeon Leicester Square, Prince Charles attended the premiere where he was seen alongside his co-stars Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu.
There is no indication that the Prince of Wales was aware of Maxwell’s presence with the young girls.
But the photo is raising new concerns about how close she and pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein are to royal circles, with their links to Prince Andrew already under scrutiny.

The anonymous broker who was seen next to the alleged woman and the three girls said he was “terrified” at the idea of them targeting guests at the party.
He said, ‘The three girls came to me and to a friend and were very flirting with me. They were in their late teens or early twenties.
One of them, to my right in the photo, appears to be the leader and was asking us if we wanted to buy drinks or go somewhere.
The girl to my left was much calmer and nervous.
And the girl in the back was from Eastern Europe and quiet too. It seemed their questions were all to ascertain our fortune.
The broker said that no one cared about the girls and after a few minutes Maxwell called them up.
The royal relations between Epstein and Maxwell are already under scrutiny, with the couple also being seen relaxing in the Queen’s log cabin in Balmoral.
A source found the photo while tidying up their belongings and stated that Maxwell was annoyed with the girls spending so much time with some of the guests before they were taken away.
They said they discussed at the time whether the girls might have been companions.
The Prince of Wales had given a speech at The Prince’s Trust that night, which benefited from the premiere.
Just 18 days ago, Maxwell was an alleged guest of Prince Andrew at a Los Angeles party hosted by the BAFTA for the movie Charlie’s Angels.
A month later, Epstein and Maxwell joined the Duke of York in Sandringham in the operation to shoot a pheasant.
The Prince Trust said it did not organize the party that Maxwell attended and had no “data” about the event.
It comes amid rumors that Maxwell may start “naming names” if she is found guilty of sex trafficking this week.
Closing arguments begin at Maxwell’s trial tomorrow, and the jury will likely retire that evening.
A legal source linked to the case told The Mail on Sunday that as Manhattan’s Christmas court deadline approaches the end of Wednesday, a verdict is highly likely this week, adding: ‘The jury won’t want to put that verdict on them. Christmas, so lawyers on both sides expect a ruling this week.
Ghislaine Maxwell may start ‘naming names’ if she is found guilty of sex trafficking charges this week.
Maxwell denies all six charges of grooming underage girls to abuse pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
However, the source said that if she is convicted – and faces up to 70 years in prison – she may cooperate with the US government in exchange for reduced sentence or better prison conditions.
“This could be bad news for Prince Andrew and other high-profile men who have stopped by Ghislaine and Jeffrey Epstein,” the source said.
She might start to cooperate and tell what she knows in an effort to reduce her imprisonment. We know that prosecutors are looking for other conspirators in connection with Jeffrey Epstein’s pedophilia ring. Ghislaine undoubtedly has information that can help prosecutors in other cases. If she decides to cooperate, her testimony can be devastating. It’s been Epstein’s right hand for years, guess what you know?
Prince Andrew’s name was mentioned three times during the trial, including by one of Epstein’s pilots who confirmed that he had flown the prince on a private jet for the disgraced financier dubbed the ‘Lolita Express’ because of the young girls it takes around the world.
One of them, Virginia Roberts, claims she was forced to have sex with the prince three times, including at Maxwell’s London home. He vehemently denies all the allegations and insists that he has never met Roberts.
The jury at Maxwell’s trial were shown these photos of the close relationship between the two, which prosecutors described as “partners in crime.”
Former US Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump have also been appointed to the court as Epstein’s partners, as well as actor Kevin Spacey and a large number of prominent Wall Street financiers, politicians and businessmen.
After Epstein committed suicide in prison in 2019 while in custody on pedophilia charges, then-US Attorney General William Barr pledged to prosecute those who aided him.
“There will be accountability,” he said. This case will continue against anyone who was accomplices to Epstein. Victims deserve and will get justice.
Maxwell’s lawyers claim that she was punished by proxy for Epstein’s crimes.
On Friday, she declined to testify in her defense, telling the judge: “The government has not proven its case beyond a reasonable doubt, so there is no reason for me to testify.”
Maxwell appeared in court yesterday, with attorneys presenting arguments about how Judge Allison Nathan should be directed to the jury. You will read 80 pages of instructions for them tomorrow.
Defense attorneys successfully fought for the judge to refer to the British socialite as “Maxwell” rather than “the defendant” and jurors were told they could assess whether she “consciously avoided” learning about Epstein’s abuse of underage girls.
