As if he didn’t have enough on his plate!
Poor, beleaguered King Filipe – he’s now got an errant sister in the headlines! And I don’t just mean the tabloids! Only yesterday Princess Cristina (and also her husband) was indicted on charges of tax fraud and money laundering. If convicted, she faces up to 11 years in jail.
What can a king to do? Filipe is like any other leader. He is vulnerable now not only to the slings and arrows of the media, but of public opinion. In consequence of the times in which he lives his hold on his throne is destined to be shaky – unless of course he can walk on water.
