It is one of those typical Uniformes de Colegio one can see in Spain and in other countries of the Hispanidad: picture.

Louis and Alphonse's outfits are typical of Spanish traditional children's wear, especially amongst the upper classes (as is Eugenie's dress). You can see similar outfits at here from the brand Anna and Louis that sells similar style clothes. Socks and stockings/tights seem to be a common feature amongst upper class children in Europe when it comes to formal wear; as we have seen with Lady Louise Windsor in the UK.

Yet your photo is a school uniform (even school uniforms for private schools in North America are similar). And the boys in them are wearing normal socks. This photo of the family is not school uniforms.

The only European royal kids I have noticed dressed like this are the BRF. And usually by 7-8 those who do follow the 'short pants even in winter' tradition, start wearing long pants. The Duke's sons are 9.

By my understanding the children of Don Luis Alfonso de Borbón go to the Colegio Everest in Pozuelo de Alarcón (Madrid). A privately funded Catholic bilingual school. They have knee-long socks indeed and the colour scheme of the trousers, shirts, spencers, blazers, polos seems to differ from otoño, invierno and verano (autumn, winter and spring), blue, green, grey and burgundy.
