PRINCESS Cristina could now face trial as tax fraud charges against her have been upheld by the Palma de Mallorca high court.
The court has, however, dropped the money-laundering charges that were against her.
The charges upheld against the Infanta – the sister of King Felipe VI – relate to business dealings by her husband, Inaki Urdangarin.
Judges have been investigating allegations that the princess’ husband embezzled millions in public funds with a former business partner.
The court has also ruled that the princess had knowingly benefitted from the dealings.
Her lawyers, however, added that they are completely convinced of her innocence.
