Spanish King Juan Carlos's youngest daughter Infanta Cristina has been summoned to face tax crime and money-laundering charges, a court on the island of Majorca said.

She has been linked to the business affairs of her husband Inaki Urdangarin, who is under investigation for alleged embezzlement of public funds.—AFP
