Now QR and KA. I think they have the same height.
Rania wears often high heels, 10-12cm. So we have to consider full pictures of her and if shes wears high heels or not. Pictures at the beach, Rania doesn't wear high heels nor KA ( :) ) so it seems they are both same height, which I alerady conclude it's 160cm.

The picture with Spanish RF, Felipe and Juan Carlos are very tall. In that picture when rania is so close to KA, and considering the shoes heels, I beleive then she is same tall as KA.

We can compare them as well while they are sitting ... :) they have the same height. But if Rania wears high heels her feet can the floor, ... not KA.
Have fun.

This is so not correct. KA’s upper part of the body is normal sized, but he has very short legs. This is not the case with Rania. She has rather long legs (without high heels, too). Therefore you cannot see the differnece in size while both are sitting. Besides, I saw her once in flesh. She seemed then to have about my hight (I am 1,69).

When I said "compare them while they are sitting" ... that goes with what I said already in the above posts. So if is there is a big difference of height between two people, that is seen as well in their upper part of their body ... which is not the case between QR and KA. Then what left is the down part of their body ... a full pictures of them at the beach without shoes, show they are same height. KA doesn't exceed 161cm.

That's only for fun ... I don't care much about their height.

I don’t care either. But she is definitively not 161 cm. I really would have noticed it. She seemed then even a bit taller than me (because of higher heels, I think). The beach photos are taken from a certain angle that presents a somewhat distorted picture.
KA is very badly proportioned. If I look at pictures which show him sitting next to his political guests or hosts I am often surprised, because they seem to have the sime size (while I actually know for sure, that the other person is much taller).

I read recently that the people of Spain, along with those of Portugal, are the shortest in Europe, so it seems that Letizia is actually quite tall for a Spanish woman. It's just that compared to the very tall Spanish Royal Family, and the especially tall Felipe, she seems short.

I belive that CP.Mathilde with CP.Maxima are the most tall actual royal women,they are eally 5'7 or 5'8 without heels,because when mathilde with heels stand beside pince phillipe who's 5'11 = 180cm she seems to be to same height.



As for the 5'7 and 5'8 of the other royals,it seems biased,except of course P.Diana who was really tall,i thought that she was taller than P.charles,that's why she banned the big heels when she was with him!:)

The first picture, KA and QR (in pink) near to each other. It's an old picture, at the time when Rania doesn't wear high heels and I guess she was still a princess.
Seeing them from front, Rania with medium heels (5-6 cm): I don't see that much height difference between KA and QR.

Picture where Haya is near to KA. Monalisa said she is 155cm. We see KA is slightly taller than her, 5cm. So KA is 160cm.

King abdallah seems to be the same height as his father or 1cm shorter.
As for rania,she's the same height as her husband or not much taller,2-3cm when she's without big heels.

So i think it's more accurate that KA is 5'3 = 160cm maximum.
and rania is 5'4 maximum when she's without heels.
Ok,you win,I rest my case! Didn't know this at all,God,what can heels do!How can she bear them,and all the time I thought KA married a taller women,people mugged him for that,poor thing!

It seems that on official pictures the king has to look taller than the queen. It was just the same with KHussein und QNoor. I often thought looking on such photos with the late king and his wife that KHussein obviously had to stand on a box while posing for them.

From pictures that what it seems to be, KA and QR (without heels) are less than 170cm.
We don't have to forget that even normal shoes for men are 2 to 3cm high :)

I beleive it's difficult to know exactly the height of Royals. So we can leave it to some approximation.
