THE SPANISH ROYAL FAMILY AT THE NEW YEAR’S MILITARY PARADE

King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia of Spain presided over the New Year’s Military Parade on January 6, 2014 at Madrid’s Royal Palace.  Accompanying the king and queen were Prince Felipe and his wife, Princess Letizia.  It looks to be another challenging year for the Spanish royal family.  Two thirds of those asked in a recent poll said that they would like to see the once popular and respected king abdicate in favor of his son and heir, Prince Felipe.  And on January 7th, Infanta Cristina, the king and queen’s younger daughter, was summoned by a judge to appear in court in relation to money laundering and fraud accusations.  Infanta Cristina’s husband, Inaki Urdangarin is under investigation for embezzlement.  Photos by Getty Images.
