The couple have two children: H.E. Don Alfonso Juan Carlos Zurita y de Borbón born in 1973 and H.E. Doña María Sofía Emilia Carmen Zurita y de Borbón born in 1975. In 1981 she inherited the Dukedom of Hernani and was also granted the Dukedom of Soria for her lifetime by her brother the King.

Infanta Margarita is a well-known lover of music, from classical to heavy metal.

    HRH Infanta Margarita was born on March 6, 1939, not in 1938. Her brother HM King Juan Carlos was born on January 5, 1938. Furthermore, your math does not work. Had the Infanta been born in March of 1938, both she and the King would be the same age of 74, born only two months apart. Impossible.
