Unfortunately, after Iñaki Urdangarin's imprisonment, I suspect in the foreseeable future the Royal Family will view it as the safer course of action to leave the morganatic spouses without any title at all.
Its not a question though of giving a title to a morganatic spouse or not.
Spain is not like the UK, where its male members of the RF or the rare spouse of a royal princess, given the title. As in Sweden, Spain has given the life peerages to female members of the family as well. And like Daniel in Sweden, allowed the husband to use his wife's title. As would Chris have been if he had accepted a title, and the conditions that went with it.
Inaki was never Duke of Palma de Mallorca. He was the consort duke. His wife was created Duchess of Palma de Mallorca, until she had it stripped. The same with Elena. She was made Duchess of Lugo over two weeks before her wedding. Jaime was entitled to be referred to as Duke of Lugo during their marriage. When they divorced, he lost that right.
Pilar is another example, her duchy was created for her not Luis.
So the question is what possible duchy will Sofia be given as an adult. Not what question her husband may or may not be given.
The pantheon of the infants/infantas has plenty of room left, Pilar could have been buried there if she chose. It seems likely she just wished to be buried instead next to her husband of 24 years.
