According to the BBC website, 'A Spanish judge has summoned the youngest daughter of King Juan Carlos to appear in court over accusations offraud and money-laundering'.

And apparently Princess Cristina will appear in court to be questioned over the corruption scandal. But as of yet neither she nor her husband have been charged with any crimes.

(This may have already happened as of the time of this post.)

A Spanish court will decide on Friday whether to accept the not guilty plea entered by H.R.H. the Infanta Cristina Duchess of Palma de Mallorca, or to try her.

Well, today's supposed to be the day. Has anybody heard what the fate of the Infanta Cristina is to be?

The more serious money laundering charges were dropped against the Infanta, but charges in regard to tax fraud will proceed.

With the likelyhood that the Infanta will now have to appear before the courts in this matter, there is increasing concern that further damage will be inflicted on the image of the monarchy after all the hard work put in by King Felipe VI to repair it.  There is some talk apparently that King Juan Carlos is trying to get his daughter to renounce her rights of succession.  This badly translated article seems to indicate that he is acting as an intermediary with the Infanta on behalf of his son.  It also indicates that the former monarch has been much happier since his abdication, and that his relationship with his daughter-in-law Queen Letizia, and with his wife Queen Sofia has improved greatly since then.

Her Royal Highness Infanta Cristina and her husband Inaki Urdangarin are are to stand trial on charges of tax fraud in January.  It is the first time a member of the Spanish royal family is put on trial.  The Infanta will stand trial in Palma de Mallorca (ironically the Infanta and her husband were recently stripped of the title of Duke and Duchess of Palma de Mallorca) beginning on January 11 along with 16 other defendants.

Although prosecutors had indicated that they would not bring the Infanta Cristina to the dock, the three judges on the panel hearing evidence against her have ordered that she stand trial.

Her Royal Highness the Infanta Cristina has been acquitted of corruption and being an accessory to fraud.  She has however been fined 265,000 Euros for benefiting from the crimes commited by her husband.  Her husband Iñaki Urdangarin, former Duke of Palma de Mallorca, was found guilty and was sentenced to six years and three months in prison.  The Infanta and her husband were stripped of their Ducal titles when they became embroiled in the scandal.
