Spain’s Princess Cristina is being questioned in court in connection with a corruption scandal involving her husband’s business dealings. It is the first time in history that a member of Spain’s royal family has appeared in court as the subject of a criminal investigation. Her husband Inaki Urdangarin is alleged to have defrauded regional governments of millions of euros of public money. The princess and her husband deny any wrongdoing, and have not been charged. The BBC’s Tom Burridge in Madrid says the world’s media will analyse every detail of this corruption case, which has already gone on for three years and made headlines in Spain on an almost daily basis. Spain’s royal household admits the case has damaged the reputation and credibility of Spain’s royals, and, partly because of this scandal, the popularity of King Juan Carlos has fallen in recent years..LEARN MORE ABOUT HEARING Pro-republican campaigners vowed to demonstrate near the court.
