Her husband, Iñaki Urdangarin, has been sentenced to six years and three months for fraud and tax evasion.

Princess Cristina must pay a fine of €265,000 as she holds civil responsibility.
In 2014 an investigating magistrate on the Balearic island of Majorca made the princess an official suspect in the corruption case against her husband.
