Banker Euan Rellie, who befriended Maxwell at university, socialised with the heiress, Jeffrey Epstein and the Duke of York. Speaking in a new ITV documentary, Mr Rellie recalled being invited to a dinner party in Epstein’s New York townhouse by Maxwell, which she said was “for my friend Prince Andrew”.

Mr Rellie said: “She described Andrew as being her friend, not Jeffery’s.

“I got the sense that Prince Andrew and Ghislaine had probably been girlfriend and boyfriend in the past.

“They had an easy warmth around each other.”

In the documentary presented by Ranvir Singh, former royal protection officer Paul Page also speculated about Andrew and Maxwell’s relationship.

Mr Page said: “I first met Ghislaine Maxwell in 2001.

“From the way she was allowed to enter and exit the palace at will, we realised and suspected that she may have had an intimate relationship with Prince Andrew.

“A colleague of mine remembered her coming in four times in one day.

“She kept coming in and out, in and out.”

Ghislaine, Prince Andrew and the Paedophile airs on ITV at 9pm on Tuesday.

ITV said the documentary “unravels the story of how an entitled daughter of a billionaire sank into shame and disgrace through her friendship with paedophile Jeffrey Epstein”.

It added: “Maxwell’s trial shone a spotlight on the lifestyle of her, Epstein and their circle, including private jets, New York mansions and luxury exotic islands.

“Ranvir explores Maxwell and Epstein’s extensive network of rich, powerful and famous friends, speaking with some of those in their ‘little black book’ of contacts and examining evidence from the trial including flight logs from Epstein’s private planes listing famous passengers.”

The documentary comes after Maxwell was found guilty of recruiting and trafficking young girls to be sexually abused by disgraced financier Epstein.

Meanwhile, Andrew is facing the prospect of a court showdown after a US judge threw out his bid to dismiss Virginia Giuffre’s civil sex case.

Ms Giuffre is suing the Duke for allegedly sexually assaulting her when she was a teenager and claims she was trafficked by convicted sex offender Epstein to have sex with the royal when she was 17 and a minor under US law.

Andrew has strenuously denied the allegations.

A spokesperson for the Duke declined to comment on the documentary.
