Palma.—For the first time in Spanish history, a member of the royal family will appear in court at 10am today to be questioned in a major corruption scandal and over 350 journalists from as far afield as Iran, the United States and China will be covering the story which has gripped the World.
48-year-old Princess Cristina, the youngest daughter of King Juan Carlos, is being investigated in a long-running and highly publicised case that has damaged the king’s image and raised questions about the future of the royal family and yesterday, while the final security measures were taking place and reports from Palma were being broadcast live around the World, the first of many protests were staged outside the court house.
