Shortest Royal Marriages

Either by Death or Divorce, can Anyone tell my the shortest marriages in royal history.

I know of Princess Filippa of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn who was killed in a car crash 3 months after her wedding.

Well George IV's marriage to Mrs. Fitzherbert, if that even counts as a true marriage, since it was quickly annulled, was pretty short :)

In Spain, King Alfonso XII's marriage to Princess Maria de Las Mercedes of Orleans only lasted six months. The new Queen died both of tuberculosis and miscarriage, aged 18.

know this is an old post but George wasn't really married to Mrs Fitz. and it wasn't as far as I know annulled. He married her illegally and they split up, and he married Caroline of Brunswick. then when he left Caroline, Mrs F got a papal declaration that she was really married in religious temrs to George...

Marriage that ended by death before it even started:
P.Albert Victor (of UK) and P.Mary of Teck were engaged for 6 weeks when he died of influenza, 6 weeks before their wedding would have taken place. Mary later married her fiancee's younger brother George.
