Palma.—Inaki Urdangarin, the son-in-law of King Juan Carlos, flew into Spain from the United States, where he works for Telefonica, yesterday as he prepares to defend himself in a Palma court this Saturday morning in a widening embezzlement scandal.

The Duke of Palma, who is married to the King's youngest daughter Princess Cristina, flew in from Philadelphia at 8am.
His lawyer, Mario Pascual Vives, claims that his client, if anything is only guilty of possible “administrative errors” and that the whole situation “will be much better once he has appeared in court and had a chance to have his say.” Vives also confirmed that the Duke will address the media after his hearing which begins at 9am.
However, it remains to be seen whether the Duke will fly in to Palma early on Saturday, or spend Friday in Palma, and the royal household has yet to give any indication if his wife, the Princess, will accompany him.
