Palma De Mallorca (Spain): The Spanish king`s son-in-law is set to make a second appearance in court to be questioned by a judge about allegations he and a partner funneled millions of euros to companies they controlled.
Inaki Urdangarin has not been charged with a crime. But he has been called to answer questions at a courthouse on this Mediterranean island today about whether he used his high-profile status to secure lucrative deals for a nonprofit foundation he ran and then fraudulently diverted money for personal gain.
The investigation into the alleged financial misdeeds has deeply embarrassed the monarchy in a country hard hit by a financial crisis and sky-high unemployment.

It ranks among the worst public relations mishaps the royal household has experienced in the 37-year reign of King Juan Carlos.
