Carlos Morales, an architect, gave evidence to the judge for five hours before being charged with influence-peddling, a statement from the Canaries high court said.
Morales is married to Princess Alexia of Greece, the daughter the former Greek King Constantine, who is the brother of Spain's Queen Sofia.
Twenty-one people, including politicians and businessmen, have already been arrested since last month in the island of Lanzarote for alleged involvement in the affair, in which prosecutors say kickbacks were paid for municipal contracts.
