I read Queen Margrethe is 6 feet tall. Not sure about the others, but I think she's the largest.

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'm feeling depressed, now. I've always hated being short (only 1.58 m), but knowing how tall all these beautiful women are...it's too much for my (small) ego. I was hoping Princess Maxima was shorter, she is absolutey stunning, charming, classy, etc.

Don't feel depressed. I think Crown Princess Mary is shorter. The most beautiful person I personally know is actually only 1,48 m. But she is extremely pretty. So it is not only the height that matters even when it comes to beauty. And you can wear high heels without everybody always looking up to you!

Does anyone know how tall Charlotte Casiraghi is??
I once read in a German magazine that she's 1,78m, which in my opinion can't be true....she looks more like 1,68m....but does anyone know her exact height, or is good at estimating it :)

The site of the Bristish Olympic Association says that Zara Phillips is 1.67 m (around 5' 6").

Beijing 2008 > Athlete profile

Sophie Wessex, Beatrice and Eugenie seem to be a tad shorter than that.

According to Theodora Greece, actor, Casting Call Pro

Princess Theodora of Greece is 1.78 m (5' 10"). Quite a tall lady!

I think that Queen Elizabeth II was always 5`2" as that is my height and I paid attention to this, her sister was 5´0" as she was the same height as my mother.
I have been a guest at a wedding with the Spanish Royal Family and they seemed to tower over everyone else present. I was especially taken by Queen Sofia, to me at my height she looked extremely tall and majestic, she made me feel very chin-scraping-the-ground short.

I believe that Diana was 5'10" and Charles is 5"11. That was why she wore flats or very low heels. But, she was not taller than him.

I didn't realize that Princess Alexandra is so tall! I know that Princess Michael is supposed to be 6 ft.

You know this could explain Princess Michael's reputation for looking down on people.

I recently saw a picture of Haakon and Mette Marit with Victoria of Sweden and her boyfriend Daniel Westling and both Victoria and Daniel were shorter than the Norwegian pair. Anyone know their heights?

That would qualify them as the tallest people in the world.

The swedish royal family is relatively short. I met the King in a reception line and he is approximately my height / 169 cm - 5ft 7 inches. The rest of the family is not any taller.

You mean 6 ft, 8 ft would put them in the guiness book of records for being the tallest royals.
I think Princess Marina introduced height into the BRF, hence the Kents are tall, and Princess Michael
enhanced it with her amazonic looks!
