Prince Andrew’s friend Ghislaine Maxwell was ‘abusive’ towards Princess Diana and made her cry, an alleged sex abuse victim has said.
Maxwell, 58, who is accused of procuring underage girls for paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, is said to have found it ‘really funny’ to tease the Duke of York’s sister-in-law, according to Maria Farmer, who alleges both Maxwell and Epstein sexually abused her in the 1990s.
Ms Farmer, who is in her 50s, claims Maxwell ‘hated’ Diana and took every opportunity to bully her.
Former British socialite Maxwell, who is said to be in hiding following the Epstein allegations and his subsequent suicide in prison last summer, is even said to have boasted about belittling the Princess while flicking through photos of herself with various royals.
It comes as Maxwell, who has not been seen for months, continues to be investigated by the FBI over allegations she acted as a pimp for Epstein and participated in abuse.

According to The Sun, Ms Farmer said: ‘Ghislaine’s like, “Look, there we made her (Diana) cry, isn’t that funny? We hated Diana”.
‘That’s what she said. I was like, “Oh my god, that’s horrible”. They were very mean to her, like abusive, but they thought it was really funny. Very, very sick.’
Maxwell was a close friend of Prince Andrew’s and is alleged to have recruited girls for US financier Epstein, who was also friends with the Prince.
The former British socialite is said to have enjoyed afternoons at Buckingham Palace with the Prince, in view of the Queen’s bedroom window.
Ms Farmer also said Maxwell’s New York apartment had relics stolen from the British Museum by her tycoon father.
Robert Maxwell was a Czech-born British media mogul whose financial fraud in raiding the Mirror Group pension fund was discovered after his death in 1991.

His daughter Ghislaine has fallen off the grid since Epstein was found dead in his jail cell aged 66 while he awaited trial on sex trafficking charges.
After Epstein took a sweetheart plea deal in 2008 to state charges of procuring for prostitution and served a one-year jail sentence in Florida, Maxwell and Epstein were no longer spotted together at public events.
She remained active on the New York social scene for several years, however, until mounting lawsuits and allegations began to draw harsher scrutiny.
In April of 2016, the New York townhouse where she had lived was sold for $15 million, and around the fall of 2016, she was no longer seen or photographed publicly.
She was last spotted publicly at a social event in Geneva, Switzerland on June 8, less than a month prior to Epstein’s re-arrest in the US.

Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts – who has also claimed she was trafficked to Prince Andrew – called for Maxwell to be brought forward to face the justice system.
The Duke of York has has vehemently denied any allegations against him and said that he cannot remember ever meeting her.
Ms Roberts earlier this week set up a a GoFundMe account for fellow Epstein accuser Maria Farmer, who has cancer.
Farmer, who is in her 50s, has Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, according to the fundraising page set up by Roberts Wednesday.
Both Roberts and Farmer are among women who have come forward to say they were sexually abused by the now-deceased, convicted pedophile.
Doctors want to do additional medical scans to determine the stage of her cancer so t she can begin chemotherapy, writes Roberts on the GoFundMe page, which has a goal of raising $75,000.
She also tweeted that she had set up the fundraiser with ‘Epstein’s Survivor Sisterhood’.
‘Help Maria Farmer Beat Cancer- please RT and spread on other social media platforms- she needs our help!!’ she wrote in the tweet.
