Urdangarin appeared in court on the Mediterranean island of Majorca for questioning over allegations that he embezzled millions of euros of public money paid to a company he managed.
Carlos Garcia Revenga, longtime secretary of Urdangarin's wife, the king's youngest daughter Cristina, was also due to be questioned Saturday by Jose Castro.
Urdangarin and his former partner Diego Torres are suspected of syphoning off money paid by regional governments to the Noos Institute, a charitable body which Urdangarin chaired from 2004 to 2006.
The money was meant to cover the cost of staging sporting and tourism events.
Both men have denied any wrongdoing and have not been charged with any crime. The judge is investigating the case with a view to possibly putting them on trial.
