When did the royals start their families?

After the Luxembourg announcement of the couple expecting their first child, I became curious as to at what stage in their lives the different royals decided to start a family. I started with the below (dates are approximate, listed in order of the age of the mother when the first child was born).

interesting to see that there seems to be a correlation for royals to have children later with time (as for everyone in the population), so royals marrying before would be younger when having children and have them shortly after marrying, with the odd exception.


Princess Diana : age when first child born: 21, time since marriage before first child was born: 1 years
Queen Rania : age when first child born: 24, time since marriage before first child was born: 1 years
Lalla Salma : age when first child born: 25, time since marriage before first child was born: 2 years
Princess Marie Chantal : age when first child born: 28, time since marriage before first child was born: 1 years
Queen Mathilde : age when first child born: 28, time since marriage before first child was born: 2 years
Princess Claire Luxembourg: age when first child born: 29, time since marriage before first child was born: 1 years
Catherine Duchess of Cambridge: age when first child born: 31, time since marriage before first child was born: 2 years
Princess Mette-Marit : age when first child born: 31, time since marriage before first child was born: 3 years
Queen Maxima : age when first child born: 32, time since marriage before first child was born: 1 years
Princess Madeleine Sweden: age when first child born: 32, time since marriage before first child was born: 1 years
Princess Sofia Sweden: age when first child born: 32, time since marriage before first child was born: 1 years
Queen Letizia : age when first child born: 33, time since marriage before first child was born: 1 years
Princess Mary Denmark: age when first child born: 33, time since marriage before first child was born: 1 years
Princess Victoria Sweden: age when first child born: 35, time since marriage before first child was born: 2 years
Princess Alexandra Denmark: age when first child born: 35, time since marriage before first child was born: 4 years
Princess Charlene Monaco: age when first child born: 36, time since marriage before first child was born: 3 years
Princess Stephanie Luxembourg: age when first child born: 36, time since marriage before first child was born: 8 years
Meghan Duchess of Sussex: age when first child born: 37, time since marriage before first child was born: 0 years
Empress Masako : age when first child born: 38, time since marriage before first child was born: 8 years

And a slightly more accurate/precise/consistent measure might be needed as well: both Madeleine and Máxima are indicated as '1 year' while princess Leonore was born 8 1/2 months after her parents' marriage and princess Catharina-Amalia was born after 22 months... (and the duchess of Sussex shows '0 years' while her son was born 11 1/2 months into their marriage)

i agree, but for simplicity i just used the years when events occured. it is hardly a hard science but more of an indication, but if anyone wants the precise detail to the number of days they are welcome to expand.
