From the Emanuel's book on the wedding ensemble 'A Dress for Diana', in the chapter The Shoes, page 123 "The heels needed to be very low because Diana was so tall".
From the lips of Prince Phillip at the time "At least she will breed some height into the line".
Also in the famous engagement pic, Diana had to stand one step down to make Charles look taller.
Until the separation, Diana always appeared in flat, or close to it, shoes. After the separation, she often wore heels. So, back OT...those are not the correct shoes.
