I read an article which may be another possible explanation as to how royals can organise weddings so quickly. Relevant quote is below

Quote:
Palace officials, who have to make contingency plans for all eventualities (preparations for the Queen Mother's funeral began in 1969), are working on the possibility of an engagement announcement next spring to be followed by an autumn wedding.

The Great Britian Royal family

My guess would be like the English all royal families put into place these contigency plans so once the family is made aware of the engagement the ball starts rolling (so to speak) and all the minor details of the wedding is taken care of for the couple and all they have to do is make the decisions and approve of all the plans.

second marriages

It seems to me that for second marriages the engagementtime is rather short. Don't have the exact dates at hand at the moment, but the engagement of Charles and Camilla was rather short, while the Belgian king Leoplold and his second wife were hardly engaged at all before they got secretly married, but that was wartime.

There where other long engagements

Princess Margriet and Pieter van Vollenhoven got engaged in Spring 1965 and married in Janaury 1967 and King Konstantine II. and Queen Anne-Marie got engaged in January 1964 and married in September 1964 (i read somewhere that the Wedding orignally was planned for early 1965 but after the death of King Paul was earlier then planned)

Pavlos and Marie-Chantal announced their engagement around Christmas in 1994 and got married on the 1st of July 1995.Six months is a very short period,I guess.Especially if you consider the fact that they were both very young (27 and 26 respectively).

King CG and Silvia Sommerlath announced their engagement after the
Winter Olympics in February 1976 and were married in June 19, 1976.
According to an interview her brother gave, the King asked her hand 10 days before the official announcement.
Four months for a royal wedding seems like a short period of time these
days.

probably they waited for Anne Marie's 18th birthday.

Marie and Joachim got engaged on October 3rd 2007 and married on May 24th 2008. So their engagagement period was about 8 months.

Charles and Camilla officially announced their engagement on February 10th 2005 and got married just 2 months later on April 9th.

They did. Her father stipulated they could marry, but only after she turned 18.
