Royal Wives With Younger Husbands

I know that Princess Alexandra of Denmark is 5 years older than her husband, Prince Joachim. They seem to have a very good marriage. I was wondering, what other Royal Wives are older than their husbands (Husbands need not be royal)? I have always thought that in Europe it really didn't matter as much as it does in the states.

Age doesn't matter as long as they do love each other.

It used to be fairly common in a book on succesion and heraldry in medieval to present the wife was between 1 year or 6 years Eleanor was henry's first wife but she was older and I think his father was a couple of years younger this his wife too.Wittykitty

in 1977 my mom was younger and my dad was older but its really odd for me im not sure what years is!

mostly Royals who is older or younger whatever!

how about Earl and Countess of Wessex? Prince and Princess of Wales? Duke and Duchess of York? Princess Anne and her first husband and second husband who is older or young in Royal Family.
