Spain: King Felipe VI Revokes Sister's Ducal Title

Newspaper in Spain are announcing the news that apparently came from Zarzuela Palace – HRH the Infanta doña Cristina can no longer use the title of "Duchess of Palma de Mallorca." This also prevents her husband Iñaki Urdangarín from using the courtesy title of "Duke of Palma de Mallorca."

This is yet another low point for the couple, whose financial affairs have raised much criticism in Spain and landed them in court accused of abuse of power, influence peddling and misappropriation of funds.

This is serious business that can end by sending both Iñaki and Cristina to jail ... I find the entire mess simply heartbreaking and wish that the judicial process cleans their names. I cannot possibly imagine why someone in their position would do such a thing...
