The shield is divided into four quarters, blazoned as follows:

- On sepulchres of Habsburg Princes of Asturias who didn't ascend to the throne their coats of arms are the undifferenced Lesser Royal Arms (Quarterly, 1 and 4 Castile, 2 and 3 León), with a crown closed with four-half-arches in crest. The Pantheon of the Princes of the Royal Seat of El Escorial was completed in 1888, in the nineteenth century the heir to the Spanish throne used Royal Arms differentiated by a crown of four-half-arches.
