(TMU) – As Jeffrey Epstein’s notorious associate and accomplice, Ghislaine Maxwell sits behind bars awaiting her day in court, more evidence continues to surface which shows her connections to high profile figures.
Maxwell and Epstein’s friendship with Prince Andrew has been well documented, but last week, new photos surfaced showing Maxwell posing on a throne at Buckingham Palace with the disgraced actor Kevin Spacey, who has also been accused of sexually assaulting underage people.
The photos were reportedly taken at the Queen’s London residence sometime in 2002, but they were not revealed to the public until they were published by the UK’s Daily Telegraph newspaper this weekend.

It is not clear why the pair were at the palace or how they gained access to such a sensitive area, but the Telegraph suggests that they were likely invited into the throne room by Prince Andrew.
CNN‘s royal correspondent Max Foster said that the throne represents a symbol of a monarch’s authority, and that it would be a huge sign of disrespect for any normal citizen to sit on it.
“No one else has the right to sit in it. That would be seen as a sign of disrespect towards Queen and country,” Foster said.
As the scandal has deepened, Prince Andrew has done his best to distance himself from both Epstein and Maxwell, insisting that this friendship with the pair was not as serious as it apparently was.
These pictures shed new light on just how close they were, as it would be incredibly rare to give someone access to the throne room like this, even a celebrity like Kevin Spacey.
Either Andrew was close enough with Maxwell and Spacey to allow them to break the rules like this, or perhaps they had some type of blackmail on him.
There is significant evidence showing that Epstein could have been involved in a vast sexual blackmail network, in which he and Maxwell gained power over influential people by promising to keep their secrets.
As The Mind Unleashed reported earlier this week, Maxwell is currently on suicide watch amid speculation that she might not make it out of jail alive, just like her former associate Jeffrey Epstein.
The pair were connected with major players on both sides of the political spectrum, including the Clintons and the Trumps, who have a lot to lose if Maxwell discusses their involvement with Epstein’s trafficking ring.
There are some researchers and sources close to the case who believe that Epstein was actually assassinated and that his life was taken to protect the secrets of his powerful friends.
If there is any truth to this theory, Maxwell’s life could be in danger as well, especially since she is believed to be cooperating with authorities.
In an interview with The Sun, Epstein’s former employer Steven Hoffenberg said that Maxwell ‘knows everything’ and will ‘totally co-operate’ after her arrest.
Hoffenberg, said that ‘there’s a lot of people very worried’ about what Maxwell could tell investigators, noting that Prince Andrew is especially worried.
