She will remain HRH Princess Cristina and the sister of the King, I guess that's good enough for her.

Of course no one can remove those. I just don't see how different things can be removed when she hasn't been found guilty yet.
Yes, I do believe she knew more than she admits to, but that is just my opinion [which I am entitled to have on any subject] but that is not a legal fact as yet. Very confused on this type of thing.

It has to do with political changes in Catalunia
After the elections the municipality Barcelona got another government
They are more inclined to independance from Spain and are republicans


They talk about the princess as plain and simple citizen Cristina de Borbon

taking away from Cristina serves many purposes, in case of catalonia or mallorca etc it serves the anti-monarchy sentiment of the new local governments.

Cristina's own family is not better, they publicly distance themselves from her to be seen whiter than white and as far away from corruption as possible even though she has not been found guilty by a court of law and probably never will.

It is an interesting development. A corruption fighter is accused of the corruption and blackmail. Being selectively moralising and dishonest, Europeans lecture other countries about the corruption.

Manos Limpias want to continue the trial against Cristina. Without the organisation, there is no judical accusation against the Infanta.

Without Manos Limpias ("Clean Hands") there is no case against the Infanta. The foundation is in serious trouble for blackmailing several people and organizations ("If you don't pay, we will file complaint after complaint to give you big problems and negative exposure. If you pay we will leave you alone"). It is interesting to see what the legal team of the Infanta had to say to the activistic bloodhounds of that club-with-not-so-clean-hands.

Oh, good grief. This is just dragging on. I believe most all know how this will end. Cristina will walk, Inaki will get slap on the wrist and all others will get a bit of jail time. By this time next year all will be playing "happy families" again and Cristina and Inaki will once again be the darlings of the media and daddy. I personally can't picture it going any other way. Not that I agree 100%, but that is life. So much money wasted.

i may be naive, but i don't think this is how it will end. i think cristina will get away without jail, but i think inaki will serve at least some time, for the show (although perhaps in a 'cushy' prison, away from other inmates, and with access to family and friends visiting). even if they do walk away without any jail between them (which i think is very optimistic to assume), i think they will never be able to gain back their status previously of 'darlings of the media' and 'perfect family'. the royal court will make up, if they haven't already, a strategy to send them in 'exile' somewhere in europe, never to return to spain. there's no way they will regain any royal status, and to me it is very clear that the train of life they used to live in the past, of being invited to royal events (at least high profile ones) and the like, has ended.

Nobody can ban them from living in Spain and whatever happens with the case, Cristina will be a very rich woman when the old Kings pass away. Money will not be an issue here (obviously they still have lots of support even now), so IMO they will do what they want and not care about public opinion let alonge the Kings' opinion, as Cristina has proven many times by now, trying to contradict what Felipe tried to build.
