Well I'm 5' 6 and the frock would have fitted me. Height wise, not width wise. Obviously.

To me, anyone over my petite height of 5' 2" is TALL!

I'm right there with you. Catherine doesn't appear to be lacking in the height department.

I'm with you there. I have always felt that Catherine was in the range of 5'9" - 5'10". Of the recent royal brides, she's certainly one of the tallest. It's not that noticeable when she's standing next to William,however, when she's in company of females, she is freakishly tall.

Are you joking? Catherine is 5'10".

Height is hard to judge with a without a frame of reference. Looking the at official photo with both families - Kate is coming up to William's nose. She is shorter than Harry and a little taller than Charles. Her wedding shoes had a small heel (~2 inches) so 5' 10" or 5' 9' seem in the ballpark. We will have to wait for the wax Kate to go on display at Madam Tussand and sneak in a tape measure :)

I just read an article that said a "Palace fact sheet" Listed the Duchess at 5'10".

I have seen that referenced many times. Yes she wears high heels, however so do most women she is photographed with. The men she has been photographed with do not and yet she still towers over them. Right?

We are used to seeing Catherine photographed next to William who is 6' 3", so her height has not been so obvious. It's only now that she is a member of the RF and is out in the public eye more being photographed next to other people that we truly get a clearer picture of her height

There a 70mm heels that are elegant and there are 150mm heels that are just plain OTT!

^Since when as Catherine worn 6inches heels? And do you complain about other while ladies where high heels shoes? b/c their is no difference in height b/w what Catherine and others like Sophie, Mary, Letizia, etc wear.

Nope. Not joking. It'd be a pretty poor joke wouldn't it? My impression was just that she was quite short. I wasn't suggesting she kicked small children or smacked the homeless with her umbrella, merely that in my eyes the dress looked little and the heels tall thus making her appear alot taller than I thought she was. If she's 5'10" then obviously she's taller than I thought.

Thank you for the link. She definitely wore some very classy pieces this past year.

I hope you don't mind, but I shared this link on the 'Old Fashion Discussion' thread.

A very nice retrospective of Kate's outfits this year. I hope we get to see that blush pink Jenny Packham gown again. Thanks for posting.
