Who made her this title?

Duke of Coimbra was an aristocratic Portuguese title with the level of royal dukedom, that is, associated with the Portuguese royal house, created in 1415, by King John I of Portugal to his 2nd male son, Infante Pedro. Pedro was regent of the kingdom but he was killed in the domestic Battle of Alfarrobeira (1449).

None of their children inherited this title, which was granted much later to Pedro's great-grandson, George, Duke of Coimbra, natural son of King John II of Portugal.

The last Duke of Coimbra was Infante Henrique, the current Duke of Braganza's younger brother.

Both of her brothers also have titles ,is there any reason why the youngest 2 children of the Duke are style His/Her Highness and not Royal Highness?

HRH Prince Afonso, Prince of Beira
H.H. Infante Dinis, Duke of Porto

The Infantes de Portugal have only the treatment of His/Her Highness, in comparison with the Royal Princes that are treated by Royal Highness.
