Sofia will probably get the Order of Carlos III as her mother did. Queen consorts BTW don't get the Golden Fleece either. The Spanish Court is still very conservative in certain matters.

I hope pretty soon, it's pretty annoying how many Infantes and Princes who weren't even related to the Spanish Royal Family were made Knights of the Order but the own daughters of the sovereign weren't.

Of course during the reign of Queen Isabella II, she revoked the orders from many Spanish and Portuguese Infantes and foreign princes who were against her rightful reign as Queen of Spain

The Order of the Golden Fleece has been bestowed on nearly all male Infantes, but no female Infantas have received it, based on the listing given on this website:

Society of the Golden Fleece

Here is the decree bestowing the Golden Fleece on Infante José de Baviera y Borbón of Spain, a nephew of the King Alfonso XIII, in 1924.

I meant that only the heir to throne receives it now, but, since there has been no new male infante under King Juan Carlos or King Felipe VI, I guess we don't know what the future policy will be.

I see what you mean now. I agree - the Spanish royal house might reserve the Golden Fleece for heirs to the throne in the future, much as it reserved succession to the HRH title for children of heirs to the throne in 1987.

I believe all children, regardless of gender should be invested as knights of the Order excluding spouses (male or female)
