Princess Cristina of Spain faces tax fraud trial


Princess Cristina of Spain, King Felipe VI’s sister, could face trial after a Palma de Mallorca court upheld tax fraud charges against her.

The charges relate to business dealings by Infanta Cristina’s husband, Inaki Urdangarin.

Many Spaniards have recently lost confidence in the monarchy following a series of scandals, including Princess Cristina’s case.

Judges have been investigating allegations that Inaki Urdangarin embezzled millions in public funds with a former business partner and that the princess had knowingly benefited from the dealings.

Princess Cristina’s lawyers have said they are completely convinced of her innocence.

King Felipe VI succeeded his father, King Juan Carlos, who abdicated in June 2014.
