THE royal letter, from king to king: “A year ago, I spoke to you of my wish and desire to withdraw from institutional functions. Now, guided by the conviction to provide the best service to the Spaniards, their institutions, and to you as King, I am informing you of my well-considered decision to leave Spain at this point.” But what about the wife?
Doña Cristina has been acquitted of fraud complicity. Cristina who? Nobody. Just the sixth in the line of succession to the Spanish throne. The first ever of Spain’s royal family to be tried in court.
If found guilty, she may face up to eight years in jail
