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.
