Princess Cristina and her husband have been forced to sell their their Barcelona mansion, reportedly worth nearly seven million euros, to help them pay for bail in the fraud scandal legal case that has embarrassed the Spanish monarchy.

Cristina, sister of King Felipe VI, and her husband the former Olympic handball player Inaki Urdangarin, were forced to sell the house to pay a court bond for their liability in the case.  Cristina, who was stripped of her Duchess of Palma title by her brother, has been ordered to stand trial for allegedly taking part in tax evasion by Urdangarin. He himself is accused of embezzling six million euros in public funds.
