Spanish court subpoenas king's daughter as suspect in tax fraud and money laundering probe

A Spanish court has subpoenaed Princess Cristina, the daughter of Spain's King Juan Carlos, as a suspect in an investigation of alleged tax fraud and money laundering, the latest blow to the royal family's reputation.
Urdangarin is already under investigation for allegedly using his position to embezzle several million dollars in public contracts assigned to a supposedly nonprofit foundation he set up.
The court canceled a subpoena against the princess for questioning in that case last year.
The probes have seriously damaged the image of 76-year-old Juan Carlos, once one of Spain's most respected figures.
