Sometimes these alliances were negotiated and contracts signed by the parents even before the birth. So is a negative age possible?

Sophie,Edwards wife was 34 when she married in- Anne Boelyn was in her 30's I believe - princess Margeret was 29 and Camilla was...? Not sure but I bet it's safe to say older then Kate :)

The Duchess of Cornwall = 57
The Countess of Wessex = 34
Anne Boleyn = 26 or 20.
Princess Margaret = 29.
Mary of Teck = 26.

She isn't the oldest British Bride.

I believe she was only engaged to de la Pole ...... Her only marriage was Tudor if I'm not mistaken....

Juliane of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld, sister of king Leopold of Belgium and aunt of both queen Victoria and her Albert was married at 14 to Grand duke Konstantin of Russia. The marriage was unhappy, so Juliane (Grand Duchess Anna Fjodoreva) sought exile in Switzerland where she beame the illegitimate mother of two from different lovers. She died in 1860.

Most of these young royal brides were born centuries ago. It would be interesting in modern times who was the youngest male (groom) and female royal bride (let's say the last 50 years or so).

You're right. There were a few female royals who married in their early 20's. Queen Elizabeth, Princess Caroline and Prince Anne. I believe both the Queen and Princess Caroline were 20 or 21 when they got married. Princess Anne was 23 years old. There might be a few other female royals that married prior to age 25 but these are the ones that I thought of when answering this question.

I thought about who might be the youngest male royal who got married in modern times. Prince Andrew was 26 years old when he got married. After thinking about this for a while, I think I have the answer. If I'm wrong, then please correct me. The youngest royal male to marry in modern times was Prince Louis of Luxenbourg who was 20 years old when he married Tessy Anthony in 2006. She was the same age as he.

I just thought of someone who was younger than Diana. I remember several years ago there was a girl (of gypsy ancestry) who married and was under the age of 16 whose father was King (I'm not sure what group of gypsies he ruled over). There was a big controversary over this as her actual age was not known at the time. Can't remember what country they came from (might have been Romania possibly). I remember this was 2003.

In the last 50 years or so, as mentioned before, Anne-Marie of Denmark had just turned 18 when she married King Constantine of Greece in 1964 (they became engaged when she was 16). Crown Princess Sarah of Brunei was 17 when she married in 2004.

The youngest one in the last 50 years I can think to is Princess Victorie of Bourbon-Parma, who was 16 when she married to Baron Ernst von Gecmen Waldek in 1974.

If we also mediatized Houses pricness ira zu Fürstenberg who was 15 when she married Prince Alfonso zu Hohenlohe-Langenburgin 1955.
And Prince Marie zu Wied married duke Friedrichj of Württemberg a little bit more then a month before her 20th birthday.

When she was the crown princess, Urraca of León and Castile (b. 1079 r. 1109-1126) was made a child bride at age eight to Raymond of Burgundy, a mercenary-adventurer in the service of Urraca’s father. The marriage was consummated at least when she was 13, as she had multiple still-births before the birth of her son Alfonso in 1105.

Isabella of Angoulême, Queen consort of England and Countess of Angouleme suo jure, was married at age 12 to the odious King John, and had her first child Henry III of Winchester when she was 19. I do not know if she had any prior still-births.


Yeah, child marriages was not a cool thing and should not be glamorized.

And Zara Phillips will be a bit older - she will have turned 30 at the moment of her wedding, like her sister-in-law, Autumn Phillips (if everything goes well, of course)

Very young royal bride (for the contemporary standards) will be Zeina Shaban at her wedding with Prince Rashid of Jordan (at 23)

Isabella of Valois was only 6 years old when she married Richard II of England who were 32 years older than her(not by proxy). Even though the age difference was very big they got on quite well. When he died in 1400, the new king demanded her to marry his son, but she refused. Then she was sent back to France, where she in 1406, at age 17, married the Duke of Orléans. She died during childbirth in 1409 at age 19. Her dauther married when she was quite young to, at age 15 in 1424.
