Spain's Princess Cristina to face charges

A Spanish judge has formalised charges against Princess Cristina, King Felipe's sister, in a tax fraud and money laundering case.

The princess, 49, was questioned in court in February about the business dealings of her husband, Inaki Urdangarin, and could now face trial.

However, an appeal has been lodged against the decision.

The judge's ruling will come as an embarrassment to Felipe VI, who came to the throne only six days ago, as Guy Hedgecoe reports from Madrid.
