About height. On imdb.com where it has all the famous and royalty biographies and t.v shows they were on and it also gives their height. Anyway it says that Stephanie is 5'8 and Caroline is 5'7 but I know that Caroline is taller than 5'7 because her mother was 5'7 and she defintley taller than Princess Grace. My mother also read back when Caroline was in her 20's that she was like 5'8 5'9 I think 5'8. Anyway but is it really true that Stephanie is taller than Caroline because thers many pictures of them standing up next to each other when they're adults all the time and they're both wearing heels and Caroline looks either a little bit taller or their usually the same height. I think their the same height. I have never seen Stephanie taller than Caroline. Have you guys seen Stephanie tallr than Caroline? Whats your opinion on their height?

Both Grimaldi sisters Caroline and Stephanie are 5'8''to 5'8.5 but no shorter than 5'8,for your European viewers is 172.72cm. I'm pretty sure their that tall.

I have read in old Paris Match from the days of princess Stephanie's modelling career, that she was 1,74 cm. It was the article with her modelling in white swimming suite and with a bow. The journalist wrote that she was smaller than he fought prior he met her. I've red somwhere else that princess Caroline is 1,76 cm.

There was a Mexican President or his son don't remember exactly, that used some kind of heel inside
of his shoes, that way nobady would notice. Maybe he does the same thing.

Last week when I was at the reception in Colon Theatre I tried to compare myself with them to know how tall they are.
I think the Queen is between 1,63 and 1.66.
Maxima is around 1,70. I thought she was taller but she was just a bit taller than me and I am 1,66.
WA is as tall as my husband and he is 1,93m.
I hope that can help :-)

Are you sure?

I mean, look at this picture:
(source: corbis)

Queen Sofia is 1,70 so Queen Beatrix can't be 1,63, i think...

To be exact Queen Sofia is 1.74 m, so even if she's not standing full-height; Queen Beatrix should be about 1.67-1.70 (maximum)

I heard of a norwegian friend that SONJA is very small! about 1,60m or 1,63m ... BEATRIX doesn't seem much taller than her...
so... very hard to say how tall she is...

So, in that photo that i posted she was using heels! Because Queen Beatrix and Queen Sofia haven't a big difference between them...

I would think that Maxima is taller, she often seems taller than even the men at official events with presidents and head of states.
And WA seems indeed very tall, standing out at least a head taller than the others on the pix. Even with high heels Maxima would be significantly smaller than he, if there was a 20cm difference.

Now I'm really surprised! I used to think that Maxima was around 1,75m (5'9")... She seems to be quite tall and 1,70 (5'7") is just average.

Sylvester Stallone uses heels inside his boots. Then again, he's only 3/4 the height of a normal man. I doubt someone who is already tall would go through the trouble to have special heels manufactured.

About the Sonja / Sophia / Beatrix picture, Sophia is taller than Beatrix already even though she's lowering her head, so obviously Sophia is some 8 centimetres (3 inches I believe) taller than Beatrix.

Don't you think it's odd that a woman of 1.60-1.65 and a man of 1.70-1.75 can get a son of 1.90-1.95
