His Excellency Don Carlos Zurita, the Duke of Soria and Hernani, Grande de España celebrates his 69th birthday on October 9th. Don Carlos Zurita is the husband of Infanta Margarita of Spain and thus a brother-in-law of King Juan Carlos.

Born Carlos Emilio Juan Zurita y Delgado in Malaga in October 1943, he married the younger sister of King Juan Carlos on October 12th, 1972 at Estoril in Portugal. The couple have two children: Alfonso, born in 1973, and Maria, born in 1975.

In April 2003, the Duke and Duchess of Soria were awarded the Grand Cross of the Order of Alfonso X by King Juan Carlos.

Better known as The Duke of Soria, Zurita has attended many royal gatherings over the years, including royal weddings, funerals and state banquets. Most recently, the Duke accompanied his wife to the awarding ceremony of the Distinguished Cross San Fernando to the Alcantara Regimental Cavalry Banner last week.
