I think one of the biggest age differences is the one of
Countess Bigitta Bernadotte af Wisborg (born 1933)
and Countess Diana Bernadotte af Wisborg (born 1982)

age difference 48 years and 11 months

Shouldn't there be two categories here?

1. Largest age difference, both parents in common
2. Largest age difference, one parent in common (most often, but not always, the father)

Leopold III

youngest: Marie Esmeralda born 1956 (mother Lilian Baels)
29 years

Do illegitimate children count?
in case yes, Leopold II oldest child born 1858, youngest 1907, 49 years in between
