The sister of King Felipe of Spain and her husband have sold their Barcelona mansion for €6.9 million (£5 million), less than a week after being stripped of their titles as the Duchess and Duke of Palma.
Cristina de Borbón and her husband, Iñaki Urdangarin, are both embroiled in a criminal investigation involving embezzlement and tax fraud, and have been called to stand trial as soon as this year.
According to sources from the property company Coldwell Banker, Princess Cristina and Urdangarin travelled to Barcelona from their home in Geneva to sign the sale agreement this week, thus severing one of the couple’s few remaining links with Spain.
King Felipe, who tomorrow  will mark his first anniversary as monarch after the abdication of his father, Juan Carlos, removed his elder sister’s title of Duchess of Palma  last Friday.
  Urdangarin, who received his dukedom on his marriage to Princess Cristina in 1997, automatically lost his aristocratic status as a result of this decision.
