It's interesting to me, the pressure royals face to have a child immediatley after getting married, especially heirs/heiresses apparent. I believe that's why so many, like Crown Princess Victoria, choose to date and be engaged for such an extended amount of time.

Though I suppose that mainly applies to the Northern European and non-European royals. If the Catholic royals are devout, they really don't have a choice in the matter...

They waited a while.
Technically no because Christian would have been conceieved in February which would have been 10 months after the wedding.

Some of those dates appear to be wrong - these are my rough estimates

Elizabeth and Philip - Charles was born only 6 days before they celebrated their 1st wedding anniversary

Charles and Diana - William was born over 10 months into their marriage

Margrethe and Henri - Frederick was born only 15 days before they celebrated their 1st wedding anniversary

Juliana and Bernhard - Beatrix was just over a year after they celebrated their first wedding anniversary

Question about legitimacy of the child- If the child is concieved out of wedlock is it considered illegitimate? If no, then Victoria of Sweden could get pregnant in Oct/Nov of this year and have her heir by the end of next summer.

I would assume that all children concieved before a marriage are considered illegitimate and therefore could not take the throne.

There is a noticeable difference between the modern Catholic Royals and the modern Protestant/Orthodox royals... I guess the Catholic royals are, indeed, adhering to birth control doctrines it seems!

That would be the one thing that would turn me off from marrying a royal. It'd be nice to just spend some time as husband and wife, getting to know one another a little better, I think. But that's just me!

Can somebody do some example in this direction? I have not many examples in mind and I can't see such differences

A child's legitimacy is determined by the status of the parents at its birth. (Which sort of makes sense, since it prevents any debate about babies who are born, say, 8 1/2 months after the marriage, when they could have been conceived out of wedlock or just not carried to term.) So if the parents marry the day before it's born, it's still legitimate, and if they conceive it in wedlock but then get divorced before the birth, it's illegitimate.

I think that depends on couple's age and attitude. I don't think so they must have children so quickly but Mary, Letizia, Marie or Victoria in day of wedding was (or will be): Mary - 32, Letizia -32, Marie - 32, Victoria - 33. That's not age when you could wait for starting family so long so I'm not suprised they have (or will have becouse I think that will be the same with Victoria) very quickly. But Mathilde was 26 so she could have more time but she loves kids and she didn't want wait too long as I've read.

Queen Ingrid married King Frederik in 1935.
Margrethe was born in 1940.

Prince Gustaf Adolf married Princess Sibylla in 1932.
