King Felipe, Queen Letizia, King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia attended the ceremony at El Escorial Basilica in Madrid. Royals like Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands were also there.

The infanta could have been buried at the Royal Pantheon at El Escorial monastery and palace, but she chose to lay by her husband at Saint Isidore Cemetery.
