Victoria liked sex, and birth control was largely unknown
that is true--after she delivered Princess Beatrice, her doctor advised her to have no more children. Her often quoted response was: "Can I no longer have fun in bed??" :P

So much for Queen Victoria being a prude!! I think Albert was the prude! :P

My guess is that most of these couples, who got their children 3 or 4 years after the wedding had fertility problems or miscarriages. I might be wrong here, but hadn´t crown princess Sonja a miscarriage before she got Märtha-Louise?

Some royal couples have just waited. Princess Anne of Great Britain did not want to have a child until after she competed in the 1976 Olympic games as an Equestrienne--so she put her plans on hold for 3 years to train and compete. In 1977, she had her first child Peter. Zara followed in 1981.

The Duke and Duchess of York waited--when was the Duke ever home to conceive a kid??
