Weren't Edward IV and Henry VIII both over six feet as well?

Maxima 179?? No way. I would not believe this list. And Mette Marit is not that height, more than Lady Di?

I remember you that Wikipedia is not a reliable source, since anyone can post any information

I think the Princesses Maxima, Mette-Marit and Mathilde are all in the 178-181 cm range. I remember reading in the thread on Prince Phillipe and Mathilde's engagement that the princess was 179 cm tall. In pictures of Maxima & Mathilde together, they look about the same height, give or take a cm. And Mette-Marit could be even taller, it's just hard to tell because of her posture. Also all the ladies are married to very tall men, all over 184 cm.

I've often wondered how tall Prince Alois of Liechtenstein was and could never get an answer. I ran across this pic with a lot of European royalty. Alois seems to be pretty tall especially since CP Felipe of Spain doesn't tower over him.

No way would Diana have been over 6ft. She and Charles were the same height.

Did Diana wear higher heels to embarass heels? I always thought Nicole Kidman was petty for her "now I can wear heels!" comment and I'll have to put Diana down as petty too (if its true)

I can't speak for England, but in Australia everything's metric but most people still describe height in feet and inches. Not sure why, but we all do. I have to think to tell you how tall I am in cm, but know straight away how many feet and inches I am. (and I'm 23! Never did the old metric system)

I'm pretty sure Diana was 5'10"

There's no way she was over 6 feet.

I don't think Andrew and Edward are the same height. Andrew always looks about 1 inch taller in pictures.

I don't think that can be stated with absolute certainty.

I think Diana wore higher heels in the 90's because she was coming into her own fashion-wise, she had separated from Charles and no longer had to dress as a "royal". I don't think it was done to be vindictive at all. What did it matter that she was taller in heels than he anyway?

I´m sorry Avalon, but i can not believe that she´s 1.73 m.
When i met her, i saw that she´s smaller than me, and i´m 1.70 m. I don´t know it exactly, but i think she´s about 1,65 m.

I've read several articals/sources, where they state 5'8'' as Camilla's height.
This is one of them (not the most reliable, I believe).
I've always thought she is actually under 5'5'' - 5'6'' (about 1.65 m) as well.

I have always thought that Diana was 5' 9", Charles 5' 8" and Camilla 5' 7".

No wonder the the boys are so tall. They get if from their mother. I had always wondered were they had gotten that gene. Sad to say I never looked into how tall Diana was.

Question The Height of the Three Royal Sisters

Does anyone know the height of HM Margrethe II, HRH Benedikte, and HM Anne-Marie? It seems that HM Margrethe II is the tallest among the 3 sisters... I read somewhere that she is 6ft1in(184cm)... How about the other 2 then?
