Ariadne Calvo-Platero: What is it like to be lifelong best friends with convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell?
Moreover, can it be true when it comes to Maxwell, as Jim Rohn once said: “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with”?
Today, we are going to talk about Ghislaine Maxwell’s aristocratic best friend to get more insight into the life of the jailed socialite.
Ariadne Calvo Platero, a social worker, was not seen during Maxwell’s trial and her testimony was not included in the sex trafficker’s sentencing plea.
But the two women go way back in time.
So who is Ariadne Calvo-Platero?
Besides once sitting on the board of Ghislaine Maxwell’s do-nothing charity, Calvo-Platero shares a lot in common with her jailhouse bestie:
1. Both their fathers were British politicians
2. The two were once working in publishing
3. They are both Brits living in America
4. Both fathers ended up broke
The Honorable Ariadne Calvo Platero is the daughter of Timothy Wentworth Beaumont, Baron Beaumont of Whitley. Her mother was a cousin of Lord Snowden, who married the Queen’s sister, Princess Margaret.
The qualified social worker is married to journalist Mario Calvo Platero, former editor of the prestigious Italian newspaper Il Sole 24, as well a former British energy executive for several companies.
The couple has a mention in Epstein’s black book and both have associations with children’s charities, although there are no allegations of impropriety.

Ghislaine’s brother said some of rge sex trafficker’s friends were in fear of being “cancelled” due to their association with the jailed socialite.
So is this why we did not see the social worker in the court during Maxwell’s trial?
Ian Maxwell told Insider of Ghislaine: “She deserves support and love and affection. And one of the reasons that this has not happened from third parties — or is so rare that it doesn’t really matter — is because of their fear of being canceled,
And opprobrium, and losing their jobs, and having their kids teased at school, and much, much worse.”
