Wow, that's a long wait for Joachim and Alexandra.

Is it the trend that Crown Princely couples (those who need to have heirs) have their first child sooner (like the very next year), because Charles and Diana and the other couples listed above did not wait as long as Joachim & Alex and Edward & Sophie?
