That's a stretch at best to call them cousins. As far as I can see from a cursory glance Leopold, Marie-Jose and Charles on their fathers side have the ancestor Francis, Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld. Francis was the grandfather of Queen Victoria who is Elizabeth II great great grandmother.

Kinship between King Felipe VI of Spain and Prince Charles, Prince of Wales



a) Via King Juan Carlos I of Spain and Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom



Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom>Princess Beatrice of the United Kingdom>Princess Victoria Eugenie of Battemberg> Infante Juan, Count of Barcelona > King Juan Carlos I of Spain > King Felipe VI of Spain


Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom> King Edward VII of the United Kingdom> King George V of the United Kingdom> King George VI of the United Kingdom> Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom> Prince Charles, Prince of Wales


Hence, King Felipe VI and Prince Charles are fourth cousins in this line.


b) Via Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and Sofia of Greece, Queen Emerita of Spain


George I, King of the Hellenes> Prince Andrew of Greece and Denmark> Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh>Prince Charles, Prince of Wales.


George I, King of the Hellenes>Constantine I, King of the Hellenes> Paul, King of the Hellenes> Queen Sofia > King Felipe VI of Spain.


Hence, King Felipe VI is the Prince of Wales' second cousin once removed in this line.
