Isn't an infanta just the Spanish version of a princess and isn't an infanta a higher title than princess?

Infante also anglicised as Infant, is the title and rank given in the European kingdoms of Spain and Portugal to the sons or daughters of the King who were not the heir to the throne. Prince and Princess are titles for the heir to the throne, and his wife or vice versa.

The current Infantas of Spain (by birth). are:
  • Infanta Elena, Duchess of Lugo (eldest daughter of Juan Carlos and Sofía, King and Queen of Spain);
  • Infanta Cristina, Duchess of Palma de Mallorca (youngest daughter of Juan Carlos and Sofía, King and Queen of Spain);
  • Infanta Leonor of Spain (eldest daughter of Felipe and Letizia, Princes of Asturias);
  • Infanta Sofia of Spain (younger daughter of Felipe and Letizia, Princes of Asturias);
  • Infanta Pilar, Duchess of Badajoz (eldest sister of King Juan Carlos of Spain);
  • Infanta Margarita, Duchess of Soria (youngest sister of King Juan Carlos of Spain);

They are the same. Prince Felipe will be a King one day, and then Infanta Leonor (if she doesn't have a brother or the law is changed) will be the Princess of Asturias and her sister will remain Infanta.

The only people titled Prince and Princess in Spain are the Prince and Princess of Asturias. Felipes daughters, his sisters and his aunts are titled as Infantas of Spain.

If I understand what has been said they are titles that historically goes with the title of King of Spain
