The Infanta Sofía of Spain (Sofía de Todos los Santos de Borbón Ortiz, in English: Sophia of All the Saints of Bourbon Ortiz; born 29 April 2007) is the second child of Felipe VI of Spain and his wife Letizia. As the daughter of the King of Spain, she is styled and titled Her Royal Highness, Infanta of Spain. She has an older sister, Leonor whom she follows in the line of succession.

Early lifeEdit

She was born at 4:50 pm in the Ruber International Clinic in Madrid by means of a caesarean section, two days after Letizia's due date. She weighed 3.3 kg (7 lbs. 4 oz.) and was 50 cm (19.6 inches) long at birth. Like her elder sister, her birth was announced by the Royal Family to the press via SMS.

It was announced that her umbilical cord cells would be sent to a European private bank and to a Spanish public one for future prevention of diseases. The couple did the same practice with Infanta Leonor's cells that were taken to a private center in Arizona, which caused much controversy in Spain.


The Infanta was named after her paternal grandmother, Sofía of Greece and Denmark. She was christened on 15 July in the gardens of the Palacio de la Zarzuela. Her godparents are Paloma Rocasolano (her maternal grandmother) and The Prince of Vidin. Like her sister, she was given one name, with the additional name of de Todos los Santos (of All the Saints), at her christening, a Bourbon tradition.
