PRINCE Andrew’s pal Ghislaine Maxwell will speak to the FBI about their links to paedo Jeffrey Epstein.
Sources said the sex slaver’s “madam”, 57, aims to emerge from hiding within days.
Sources say she is set to defend herself and the prince.
It was said to have been taken at her London home in March 2001.
A source said: “Like Andrew, she has no memory of it.
“Ghislaine thinks there are a lot of problems with the picture and it is very fishy.
“It is one of very few photos that does not bear a time and date stamp.”
A US source close to her lawyers said: “Ghislaine is preparing to speak — whether by talking to the FBI or giving a statement to the media.
“She has to defend herself. She has no option. She will have to address this guilt by association.”
Tonight, Roberts’ lawyer, Josh Schiller, said: “Virginia maintains that photo of her with Prince Andrew is totally genuine. And it certainly looks genuine to me.”
