Ms Giuffre claims she was forced to sleep with the Duke of York aged 17 — allegations he denies — and is suing him.

Jurors in Maxwell’s US trial could begin their deliberations today.

She faces 80 years in jail on six charges linked to paedo Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking ring.

On Saturday prosecutor Andrew Rohrbach told a hearing in New York Ms Giuffre was “the most obvious witness”.

He said: “They did not call her. She was equally available to both sides.”

Maxwell, 59, denies the charges.

Case continues.
