Princess Máxima is really a tall lady!

I thought Mary was taller than 172 cms.
I agree Letizia looks a bit short when she stands besides Felipe who is a giant but I don't think she is small, she must be around 167 cms.

I guess Letizia looks just small compared to the other Spanish Royals, who seem to be quite tall (especially Felipe).

Edit: Here's a picture of Letizia standing next to Queen Silvia, who is about 1,64m.
Letizia even seems to be a little taller

(Just look how extremely tiny Lillian looks standing next to Felipe! )
You are absolutely right.
I wonder who the longest Crown Princess...

I don't know... what about their shoes? But no doubt they're tall. Fortunately, Princess Marie and GD Maria Teresa aren't so tall. I'm not alone :)

I think because of the shoes Mathilde looks tall because when I look at here ; it says Mathilde is 175 cm.

I think somebody underestimate Letizia's height and even make a big mistake, fortunately someone correct it! I think within the crown princess, Mette-merit, Mathide and Maxima are the tallest, they seems have very similar height , but i think around that, Mathide or Mette-merit is a bit taller. Then, I think Victoria, Mary and Letizia also seems have the similar height, I guess Victoria and Letizia are about 168-170, and Mary is 169-171.

I often read that queen sofia is about 5.7, but when you see her aside carla sarkozy who is 5.9 it's obvious that there is about 10cms of difference and in more the queen has highest heels than carla
about princess laetizia, I think that she is about 5.3

Carla is definately taller than Queen Sofia and Princess Letizia. If Sofia is 5"7, Letizia is around 5"6, it is impossible that she is 5"3 as there is certainly no 10 cm difference between the height of Sofia and Letizia. I have seen some photos that both Sofia and Letizia wearing flat shoes, Sofia is a bit taller than Letizia only.

Queen Margrethe's Height?

I was looking at some of the pictures of the dignitaries in Copenhagen for the IOC meeting, and I noticed this Queen Margrethe does not appear to be as tall as she was just a year or two ago.

It's particularly noticeable here, in group photo:
Billdeserie: Dronningens frokost

And here, where she appears to be shorter than King Juan Carlos:
Billdeserie: Dronningens frokost

Several other pictures give the same impression. I wonder if this is due to an odd camera angle, or if the queen is losing height. (Didn't Queen Ingrid have osteoporosis or something similar that made her shrink toward the end of her life?)

All people shrink when they get older, no medical condition needed. So it wouldn't surprise me if Queen Margrethe does so too.

I noticed the disparity in heights when she was near Michelle Obama, who I believe is 5'11" (although MO was in high heels at the time and the Queen had small heels I think). Surely the Queen was never as tall as JC, who must have been about 6'3"? I thought the Queen was about 6 feet tall, very tall for a woman.

The height of Danish monarchs is etched into a column in Roskilde Cathedral, and Queen Margrethe measured 181 cm, which according to an online converter is in the neighbourhood of 5.9 feet. You're most welcome to check the figures !

Since her knee operation HM prefers shoes with lower heels, but her age could also have something to do with it. Stillettos are mainly for younger women!

You might want to check that calculator -- 181 cm is 5' 11.25" (just under 6 feet tall.)

I'm with HM on lower heels. In fact, if I can avoid them, I don't wear heels at all anymore...

It's not a figure I've really been interested in, it's just stuck in my memory.

I would agree that it is far more comfortable to wear lower heels, and it's rather disconcerting when very tall ladies wear high heels anyway. Says she who fights to be 5 feet tall!

I like when Queens and Crown Princesses are tall cause it makes them very majestic and very nice. Queen Margrethe is tall and so seems to be CP Mary too - and it´s makes them both so beautiful and give them really regal look...
