I wouldn't be surprised if both lenghts are a little off Harry could be an inch taller and/or Meghan 1 or 2 inches shorter.
Maybe Harry just has a shorter head.

An extremely short one (6 inches).

Found this nice chart:
1st percentile - 8.3
5th percentile - 8.6
50th percentile - 9.1
95th percentile - 9.7
99th percentile - 10

Not sure that he would qualify as human if his was only 6 inches (or even 7 inches)

I agree, something is off with the heights and her sizes. She looks about 5'5" or 5'6" and about a US size 4. There is no way she is a size 8. I am 5'6" and wear a US size 6 and she is definitely smaller than I am.

Prince Henry of Wales' height has been noted several times in recent weeks.

Does this have to do with the fact that he is getting married?

I think Meghan is 5'6" or a little shorter, and maybe a size 2 US. I know some people have suggested she inflates her height, but there is almost zero upside to being a tall actress, because the taller she is, the fewer leading men she can be paired with without it looking weird or having to make some height adjustments. Men, in my experience, are far more likely to round up. I'd say Harry is 6'2"ish. There are photos of him and Michelle Obama, who is a well-documented 5'11" and often wears kitten heels. Looking at Harry standing next to Barack, Harry is taller than Barack by an inch or so, and Barack is a well-documented 6'1".

Signed,

On her IMDb profile it is stated that Meghan is 5'7". She would be a fool to fudge figures on that profile (unless someone else fiddled with the profile but why would they do so?). No actor 'plays games' with their statistics. It would mean wasting producers' time, and worse, misleading her professional contacts. She wouldn't do it. JMO.

Tallest monarch?

After reading threads about the "Greatest" monarchs, and being a bit bored due to Covid-isolation, it occured to me we didn't have a thread for "Tallest" monarch yet

So here's a start for some tall monarchs I could find, maybe someone knows taller ones?

History
K.Edward IV (England) 1.94m
Charlemagne - est. between 1.84 and 1.95m

Current
K.Felipe (Spain) 1.97m

Wikipedia reckons that the tallest monarch in history was Maharana Pratap, King of Mewar (now the very lovely city and region of Udaipur) in Rajasthan, and that he was 7' 5". Another site claims that Harald Hardrada was 7' 6" and that King Sancho VII of Navarre was 7' 4".


Sounds like a lot of tall stories to me (sorry!).


7' 5" is 2.26 metres.

I think King Felipe is and will be the tallest monarch for a long time. Even William is shorter than him (1.94 right?).
