It looks like all of the CPs were "old brides"(over 30)minus Mette Marit and Mathilde.But I understand Victoria took her time to get married because she thought about Daniel.Among lots of reasons,he was fully aware that he couldnt work when he married.Im pretty sure he loves his job so he wanted to enjoy the last years of his job.

King William III of the Netherlands was 61 when he married Emma of Waldeck Pyrmont; they're the parents of Queen Wilhelmina. Emma was the king's second wife. His first wife, Sophie of Wurttemburg died after giving him 3 sons, all of whom didn't survive to adulthood. He was 22 when he married Sophie.

Late 20's to Early 30's seems to be the norm for marriage.

Prince Bertil waited a long time to marry 30 years. Was it because Lillian wasn't royal or royal enough?

She was divorced and she wasn't royal. He waited until his nephew, the King, married Sylvia and had children, as he was the heir. Bertil and Lillian are a true love story. Very beautiful.
