According to a report published in Fox News, she was a cousin of King Felipe VI. On 29 March, the late princess’s brother the Duke of Aranjuez, Prince Sixto Enrique de Borbon, took to his social media to announce her demise due to the novel virus. Her death comes after the news announcing King Felipe VI confirmed negative for the coronavirus.

Born on 28 July 1933, Spain's Princess Maria Teresa was a member of the Carlist branch of the Bourbon dynasty. She pursued her study in France rather than her country, Spain, and later became a professor at Sorbonne in Paris and also a professor of Sociology at Complutense University in Madrid.

The funeral function for the 86-year-old princess was taking place on Friday, in Madrid.

Borbon-Parma was the first royal to fall victim to the ongoing pandemic that has gripped mostly entire Europe for weeks. Earlier this week, the 71-year-old Prince Charles became the first British royal to contract COVID-19.

For those who are unversed, the coronavirus situation in Spain is getting more intense with the total confirmed cases of 80,110. Spain’s death toll has surpassed China with 6803 people killed by this infectious virus. Spain is currently the country with the fourth-highest number of reported cases.
