It comes just a day after Ghislaine Maxwell’s lawyer – who once represented one of Osama Bin Laden’s henchmen – released the first photo of the jailed socialite since her arrest last year.

So-called ‘super lawyer’ Bobbi Sternheim shared the close-up snap of Maxwell, 59, on Thursday as her client languishes in jail on suspicion of trafficking and sexually abusing girls as young as 14.

Prince Andrew stepped down from royal duty in November 2019 following a disastrous interview with Newsnight and scrutiny for his friendship with the convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, Maxwell was Epstein’s alleged madam. 

In new pictures,  Maxwell’s left eye has a bruise underneath, while Maxwell’s usual short dark cropped hairstyle has grown out, and is flecked with gray hairs.

It comes just a day after Ghislaine Maxwell’s lawyer – who once represented one of Osama Bin Laden’s henchmen – released the first photo of the jailed socialite since her arrest last year 

The British socialite’s lawyers included the photo in a court filing Thursday as part of their ongoing concerns about Maxwell’s treatment at Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center.

Following the release of the photo, a judge on Thursday ordered the US government to explain why guards repeatedly flash light into Maxwell’s cell overnight, an action her lawyers say may have led to the bruising.

Ian Maxwell, Ghislaine brother, said in a statement that he was ‘shocked my sister’s guards didn’t immediately refer her for proper medical care’.

Maxwell, who is accused of grooming girls for pedophile ex Jeffrey Epstein, and joining in his abuse of them, has only been seen in court sketches until now, as no cameras or recording devices are allowed at hearings.

In a filing to the federal court in New York, Sternheim wrote that on Wednesday evening Maxwell was ‘confronted by MDC staff due a visible bruise over her left eye’.

Sternheim, who represented Al Qaeda terrorist Khaled al-Fawwaz over two US embassy bombings in Africa that killed 224, said Maxwell got what she called a ‘black eye’ despite 24/7 camera surveillance on her at all time.

The filing said: ‘No guard addressed the bruise until Ms. Maxwell, who has no mirror, caught a reflection of her aching eye in the glean of a nail clipper.

‘At that point, MDC staff confronted Ms. Maxwell regarding the source of the bruise, threatening to place her in the SHU if she did not reveal how she got it’ – the SHU is the most restrictive part of the prison.

Today's pictures - which is only Andrew's second appearance since Prince Philip's funeral last month - comes after the Duke of York has gone into business with Harry Keogh, once a star financier at the Queen's bank, Coutts, before he resigned in March 2018 following a storm over sexual harassment claims. He is pictured with Princess Anne at Prince Philip's funeral

Despite claiming to have no mirror, Maxwell appears to manage some level of maintenance with well-plucked eyebrows clearly on display. 

Today’s pictures – which is only Andrew’s second appearance since Prince Philip’s  funeral last month –  comes after the Duke of York has gone into business with Harry Keogh, once a star financier at the Queen’s bank, Coutts, before he resigned in March 2018 following a storm over sexual harassment claims.

Mr Keogh was disciplined after accusations that he inappropriately touched young female staff, made lewd comments and was a heavy drinker.

But it seems the Duke of York has started a business venture with his long-time friend, who attended the wedding of his daughter, Eugenie, in 2018. 

The company, which was formed last June, will be a vehicle for Andrew’s family investments and will have an unlimited status, which affords it a degree of privacy, The Times reported.

It is named Lincelles, after an 18th-century battle in which the Duke of York commanded the English against the French.
