  1. Spain’s Princess Cristina Charged With Tax Fraud

It is the first time a direct relative of the king will appear in court. Despite the royal couple denying any wrongdoing, it will take more than words to restore the credibility of a crown that, according to polls, only 41 percent of Spaniards support.
