Spanish history was made last Thursday afternoon when King Felipe’s elder sister became the first royal to be questioned in a court of law. Princess Cristina de Borbón has been accused of tax fraud and faces demands for an eight-year prison sentence.
The case is being heard in Mallorca alongside the trial of her husband, Iñaki Urdangarin who, with his business associate, is accused of diverting millions of euros into their own accounts from an institute they ran. It is alleged some of the cash went into Aizoon, an estate agency owned by the Urdangarin and Princess Cristina.
