Prince Andrew is calling out embarrassed actor Kevin Spacey in a bid for his clean name.

It comes as sources say the Duke wants to distance himself from Ghislaine Maxwell, the billionaire pedophile’s ex-girlfriend found guilty of five of the six sex trafficking charges.

The Duke of York has been photographed multiple times since the 1980s vacationing and partying with the disgraced socialite, who also attended various royal residences.

But in legal documents responding to Virginia Giuffre’s allegations, the Queen’s second son dismissed any notion that they were close friends.

Images also surfaced of Maxwell sitting next to Spacey in the Buckingham Palace throne room in 2002.

Although Andrew arranged the VIP tour, he wants Spacey to tell the jury that it was he who invited his friend Maxwell, not the duke, a source told The Sun.

The source said: “If Kevin can convince a jury that he was the crucial link to Ghislaine, rather than Andrew, it distances the Prince from her a bit, and that’s crucial.

“Andrew also believes that such a talented actor and speaker could be a very compelling asset in front of a jury.”

The Duke of York has responded to allegations of rape and sexual assault made by his accuser Virginia Giuffre, who this month was granted the right to put the queen’s son on trial in the United States.

Andrew, 61, has rejected all allegations of wrongdoing and demanded to have a “jury trial” as sources close to the duke told The Mirror he is “committed to clearing his name”.

Ms Guiffre, now 38, claims she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew on three occasions in 2001 when she was 17 and was trafficked around the world to be used as a “sex slave” by the pedophile friend of the Duke, the late disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein. .

Media attorney Mark Stephens said Andrew will face detailed questions of a sexual nature when he testifies, either in person or via video link, at the jury trial in the fall.

Commenting on the lurid details that may emerge from the trial, Stephens said: “For example, Virginia Giuffre will be asked questions about the prince’s body, any markings, his performance, what positions were taken, every detail that can be asked and then that will be put on Andrew.
