Spain’s Princess Cristina is to face trial for tax fraud in a corruption case which also involves her husband and 16 other people.

A court official said a panel of judges rejected Cristina’s argument that she should not be tried because a prosecutor recommended she face at most administrative fines.

The 50-year-old princess is the sister of King Felipe VI. She faces two counts of tax fraud carrying a maximum prison sentence of eight years for allegedly failing to declare taxes on personal expenses paid by a property company she owned with her husband, Inaki Urdangarin, an Olympic handball medallist turned businessman.
