Age Royals Became Grandparents

We have somewhere the thread about Royals who lived so long to have great-grandchildren, so maybe it's time to have one about royals' debuts as grandparents?

We know from history that in the old days people started their own families in younger ages and a pregnant grandmother (even before turning 40) was not a rare ocurrence.

Now we rarely see among royalty grandparent in their 40s, but such cases still happen.

In XX century I associate youngest royal grandparent wqas Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi of Iran, who became the grandfather of Zahra Mahnaz Zahedi (firstborn child of his then only child, Princess Shahnaz) 37 days after his 39th birthday.

39th??? Oh so nostalgic, my maternal grandmother was exactly 39 years old when my older brother was born. 3 years later I was born and she was 42 years old. I have a very young grandma (because of that I knew my great-grandmother, who was still on her late 60s).

Victoria, Crown Princess of Prussia was born November 21, 1840. She was thirty-eight years old when her granddaughter, Princess Feodora of Saxe-Meiningen was born on May 12, 1879.

Emperor Franz Josef and Empress Elisabeth of Austria became grandparents for the first time on 8 January 1874; he was 43, she had turned 36 just a couple of weeks before.
Their daughter Gisela became grandmother aged 38, in 1895.
Their daughter-in-law Stephanie (née Princess of Belgium) became grandmother in 1904, two months before turning 40.

But the youngest grandparent I can think to is King Louis XV of France: he was born in 1710; he became father in 1727 and grandfather in 1741, aged just 31.
