The story behind the Ghislaine Maxwell throne photo in Buckingham Palace

New York: Sitting on Queen Elizabeth’s throne in Buckingham Palace, Ghislaine Maxwell gives a regal wave for the camera.

Seated next to her on the throne normally occupied by Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, is Kevin Spacey, the Hollywood actor accused, but never convicted, of multiple sexual offences.

The pair were invited into the throne room on a private tour of the palace organised by Prince Andrew, Duke of York, a close friend of Maxwell’s, the London Telegraph reported. Obtained exclusively by the newspaper, the photo was taken in 2002 and shows Maxwell in a mock royal pose with Spacey pretending to be Philip.

It is a far cry from Maxwell’s current predicament. Almost 18 years on, she has swapped the privilege and comfort of the Queen’s throne for a police cell in a New York “facility”.
