The dangers that a monarchy can face when the husband of a member of the royal family has a business career are exemplified by the present investigation into the business activities of the husband of Infanta Cristina. No-one criticises the wives of royal princes who are engaged in charitable work and attend functions with their husbands; but do we really believe that the public would be content to see a royal consort who is disqualified from anything other than titular roles in various charities? An executive role almost certainly brings with it political conflict. Does the public not expect that royal spouses earn their living? But if they are not to risk controversy which damages the crown, what career is open to them other than a military one?
