Prince Andrew faces more humiliation as new documents reveal court told Ghislaine Maxwell to search emails for

Prince Andrew is facing more humiliation after it was revealed that sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell was ordered to search her phone, computer, and thousands of emails for his name along with the words ‘sex toy’ and ‘erotic’.

 

The explosive court documents reveal how  Maxwell’s lawyers were instructed by a US court to scour all her electronic devices for any mention of the Prince, other acquaintances of paedophile Jeffrey Epstein and a string of sordid words.

These included ‘Prince’, ‘Andrew’, ‘Duke’, York’, ‘Royal’, ‘underage’, ‘massage’, ‘slave’, ‘sex’, ‘nipple’ and ‘dildo’, according to the devastating legal papers.

 

It is not known what the search uncovered, with Maxwell’s lawyers claiming it was a ‘wild goose chase’. The case was settled before it came to court.

Last night, a source close to the Duke of York told the MoS how Andrew had been left reeling by the lurid new claims.

‘He doesn’t have the emotional bandwidth to deal with this,’ the source said. ‘He has locked himself away in a room and has no idea how to respond. He’s devastated.’

The court files were sealed in 2017 but published after requests from media firms.

They included claims the Prince knew of Epstein’s sex trafficking, committed ‘acts of sexual abuse’, enjoyed daily massages, and took part in an ‘underage orgy’. Andrew has vehemently and repeatedly denied all the allegations made against him.

Scotland Yard last week said it would not rule out investigating sexual assault claims about Prince Andrew, while the release of the court documents are believed to have strengthened the King’s resolve that his brother will never be allowed to resume Royal duties.

A string of documents released in the early hours of yesterday disclosed a bitter legal battle between Giuffre and Maxwell’s lawyers over a 2016 court order that a search should be carried out of Maxwell’s ‘electronic media’.

In a letter to Maxwell’s legal team, Meredith Schultz, one of Ms Giuffre’s lawyers, demanded that Maxwell’s email and iCloud accounts be combed over, along with her computers, phones and tablets.

Ms Schultz then listed 368 words to search for, including Prince Andrew, his initials ‘PA’ and ‘Clinton’ – a reference to former US President Bill Clinton. There is no indication of any wrongdoing by Mr Clinton.

The list also includes words that are either sexually explicit or suggestive of abuse, including ‘erotic’, ‘masturbate’, ‘servitude’, ‘juvenile’, ‘schoolgirl’, and ‘paedophile’.

Maxwell’s lawyer Laura Menninger later objected to ‘the vast number’ of search terms, complaining that ‘running a search on Ms Maxwell’s devices of all 368 terms will take more than a week’.

She highlighted the difficulty of searching for common words like ‘bed’, ‘lingerie’ and ‘bath’ and the names of lawyers.

Ms Giuffre alleged she was forced to have sex with the Prince on three occasions when she was 17, including in a bath in Maxwell’s townhouse in London in 2001. The claims have been repeatedly and strenuously denied by Andrew.

Ms Menninger complains in one letter that Giuffre had sent Maxwell ‘on a costly, time-consuming and burdensome wild goose chase that has yielded not so much as a single goose feather. It is time to call off the hunt.’

 

The legal documents, however, do show that, to comply with the court order, 110 words were searched for – including Andrew’s name and the sexually explicit words.

The search led to the discovery of about 9,000 documents and messages, though it is unknown if Andrew featured in any of them.

The latest cache of documents show Maxwell’s constant efforts to find new women and girls to satisfy Epstein, including having threesomes with other women.

They also reveal how Tony Figueroa, Giuffre’s ex-boyfriend, claimed Maxwell would call him to ask whether he had found girls to take to Epstein and how Giuffre, Maxwell, and Epstein ‘were all intimate together on multiple occasions’.

 

Figueroa was paid between $200 and $300 for each new girl he took to Epstein at the financier’s $18million mansion in Palm Beach, Florida.

 

In a separate deposition, Rodriguez told investigators that there were ‘many pictures’ of Andrew proudly on display at Epstein’s mansion, dubbed ‘the house of horrors’.

Meanwhile, in another document Johanna Sjoberg – who was recruited by Maxwell when she was a 20-year-old student – said she was paid £200 for every massage from the pair, which was increased by £100 when she did something sexual for Epstein.

 

In her deposition in 2016, Sjoberg recalls giving between five and ten massages to Maxwell – in all of which the disgraced socialite was naked under a towel.

 

Asked whether Maxwell was ever nude or topless by a swimming pool, Ms Sjoberg added: ‘I don’t recall. She was nude when she went swimming in the ocean.’

 

Maxwell was convicted in December 2021 of sex trafficking and procuring teenage girls for Epstein. The financier killed himself in jail several weeks after his July 2019 arrest for sex trafficking.
