I don't think you marry someone from your own royal family >> you marry into another royal family...

At any rate, as people have said there are certainly logical science reasons to not have sex w/ someone closely related to you. But those aside there is also a social stigma against doing so - maybe partially due to the fact that you are doing something that is distructive to the gene pool (a mistake which others will pay for either further down the genetic line or at least through their tax dollars)- but it also comes from it is awkward for you to have a sibling relationship that then becomes a sexual relationship and in many cases in history these relationships - marrying cousins and such were done with a much older man and a much younger woman - so it's seen as almost an abuse of their position of power within the family.
It's also just plain uncommon for people to fall in love with close family members so like most uncommon things it is awkward when it actually happens because it is so rare...
