It is the photograph that has dogged Prince Andrew for years, as well as his disgraced former friend Jeffrey Epstein and the paedophile's alleged 'madam' Ghislaine Maxwell.

The prince grins broadly with his arm around the bare midriff of a 17-year-old girl, Virginia Roberts, who claims Epstein forced her into sex with a series of rich and powerful men.

Now, an uncanny series of photographs can be revealed showing how a girl, thought to be Miss Roberts, was paraded around glamorous parties by Epstein and Miss Maxwell, daughter of disgraced newspaper tycoon Robert Maxwell.

The teenager was flown to the south of France on Epstein's private jet and the images appear to show her at an exclusive event alongside celebrities such as supermodel Naomi Campbell and Italian businessman Flavio Briatore.

Astonishingly, in these deeply disturbing images, the girl appears to be wearing the same clothes as when she posed for the earlier photograph with Andrew – an off-white, strappy top which exposed her midriff and distinctive, multi-coloured trousers.

Miss Roberts has even described in legal documents how she attended the party in St Tropez to celebrate Miss Campbell's 31st birthday. A tranche of 2,000 pages was disclosed by the US courts released last week, and in them Miss Roberts said she 'met Naomi Campbell at a birthday party of hers on a yacht in the South of France'.

'She is a friend of Ghislaine's, but she was a real b**** to me,' Miss Roberts said. Later, the same document stated: 'I met famous friends of [Epstein's], such as Al Gore, Heidi Klum, and Naomi Campbell.'

Her lawyer Sigrid McCawley asked: 'When in 2001 did you go on a six-week trip with him?' Miss Roberts replied: 'I don't remember exactly when it was but, it's the one where we went to Tangier, Morocco, England... France.'

Miss Roberts wrote about another encounter with Miss Campbell – a year later – in a manuscript of her memoir, which was also included in the court documents. They all attended the grand opening of the Nikki Beach Club in St Tropez where Miss Campbell was hosting her birthday in 2002.

Out of her depth: Earlier that night, the blonde teenager, thought to be Miss Roberts, is photographed awkwardly looking around as the revellers wait to board the yacht. She is standing close to Miss Campbell, Briatore and Miss Maxwell, who is in a light-blue turtleneck

Describing that evening's party, Miss Roberts said Miss Campbell was wearing a Dolce & Gabbana bikini top and a miniskirt.

Miss Roberts writes: 'Ghislaine and Jeffrey kissed her cheeks and wished her a happy birthday and then I was introduced.' Later that night they went to the main birthday party where Miss
