I'm not sure but it seems to me that the Infantas Pilar and Margarita don't have any own private fortune. It's the King who provide for them on the appointements given by the deputies and senators. i don't know exactly the way to legalize each year the amount of the gobal appointement given to the King.

I am not sure about your other questions.
This is semasiologically as well as constitutionally wrong and under no circumstances the Infantas Pilar and Margarita or the King's daughters should be referred to as princesses for they are not.

First of all, Infante(s) and Infanta(s), means child(ren) [masculine and feminine, common derivation with the English word infant and the French enfant] and are used for all the children [and the children of the prince or princess of the Asturias] of the Monarch except for the Heir to the Throne, man or woman, who is the only child of the Monarch who is statutorily (legally that is) a prince or princess. So, if the King had a second son, he would be Infante and his children private citizens, honorifically referred to as excellencies.
However, the King has the privilege of granting the title of Infant or Infanta along with the HRH style. King Juan Carlos did use this prerrogative once by elevating his first cousin Carlos to HRH Infante Don Carlos of Spain, Prince of Two Sicilies, Duke of Calabria
Article 3 of Royal Decree 1368/1987 [see official Site of the Royal House] limits the granting of the title prince or princess to the wife of the prince of the Asturias and the husband of a queen reignant. All other sons and daughters of a king, or brothers and sisters are infantes and infantas - strictly so.

Similar to the Spanish Constitution with respect to titles of the royal family was the Greek Constitution when the monarchy was in effect. The children of kings wre called Vassilo'paes [=royal child, singlr], Vassilo'paedes [plural]. In fact, queen Sofia, before her marriage, was titled, insofar as the Constitution was concerned, HRH Vassilo'paes Sofia of Greece.

Because their father was the pretender to the Throne and they were grand daughters in the male line of a King. To the same extent, the daughters, Leonor and Sofia, of the prince of the Asturias, who are grand chidlren of King Juan Carlos, are Infantas.
A King's grand children other than through the prince or princess of the Asturias, however, are not Infantes or Infantas and are not royal or hignesses either. Indeed, the grand chidlren of the king through his daughters are private citizens even though they are in the line of Succession to the Throne.

Well the whole thing is not quite clear. In Great Britain, the terms Royal House and Royal Family are synonymous and comprise, no matter how close [or distant], all royal personages who are princes/princesses and cary the HRH style. Thus, members of the British Royal Family are only those who are statutorily HRH and Princes/Princesses and their spouses and this does not reflect the degree of kin/closeness to the monarch. Paradoxically, some very close family members, such as the children of The Princess Royal, The Princess Anne, albeit The Queen's grand children, are not members of the Royal Family. On the other hand, The Queen's first cousins, eg Princess Alexandra and Prince Michael are members of the Royal Family.

With respect to Spain:
In a technical sense, and as the Official Website of the Royal House implies, members of the Royal House are the ones who are in line of succession and carry the prince/princess or infante/infanta with the HRH prefix, along with their spouses. This definition, therefore, limits the members of the Royal House to the King, the Queen, the Prince and Princess of the Asturias, the two infantas, daughters of the Prince of the Asturias, and the infantas, daughters of the King along with their husbands. The grand children of the King, through his daughters, are in the line of succession but are neither HRH nor infantes/infantas and, technically, they are not members of the Royal House.
The definition of the Royal Family is [and I am not sure here] somewhat broader to comprise also those who carry the infante/infanta title and the HRH prefix without necessarily being (close or at all?!) in the line of Succession to the Throne. Thus, the Royal Family includes also HRH the Infanta Pilar, Duchess of Badajoz, HRH the Infanta Margarita, Duchess of Soria, 2nd Duchess Hernani with her husband and (the King's 1st cousin) HRH Infante Don Carlos of Spain, Prince of Bourbon-Two Sicilies, Duke of Calabria.

It should be noted that the Constitution of Spain, limits succession to the successors of King Juan Carlos. It uses the word successors and not descendants, which has sparked a lot of debate. If the word successors comprises also the horizontal relatives of the King, then, his two sisters as well as infante Don Carlos are also in the line of Succession.

At any rate, the private family of the King comprises also the children of the infantas Elena and Cristina. However, in a strict sense, the children of the infantas Elena and Cristina are neither members of the Royal House nor of the Royal Family because they are statutorily private citizens (even though they are in line of succession).
