DISGRACED Princess Cristina and her husband Inaki Urdangarin have flogged their Barcelona mansion to cover future court expenses.

The couple topped up their ‘court account’ by €2.4 million following the sale of their home in Barcelona, valued at €7 million.

Cristina is to face trial for tax fraud, while Urdangarin is charged with money laundering and fraud.

A judge set bail of €2.7 million for the princess and €13.5 million for her husband.

Cristina is the first royal family member ordered to stand trial since Spain’s monarchy was restored in 1975.

The trial is expected late this year.
