It’s definitely not something we think about often, but we’d be lying if we said the royal family members’ heights haven’t crossed our mind before. So, we did some research and, as it turns out, we were totally off (with the majority) of our estimates.
Keep reading for all of the royal family members' heights, from tallest to shortest.
1. Prince William (6’3")
At the top (get it?) of the height chart is...Prince William! The future king pretty much towers over the rest of his royal fam (although, he only has about an inch on his brother, Prince Harry). We were surprised to find out the Duke of Cambridge is the tallest of the bunch, but we have a feeling his eldest son, Prince George, might surpass him when he grows up.
2. Prince Harry (6’2")
Back to Harry. He may not be as tall as his older brother, but the Duke of Sussex’s height landed him the second spot. Like we said before, he’s only an inch shorter, which is probably barely noticeable in person.
3. Prince Philip (6′0")
You might be thinking that both Harry and William get their height from their dad, Prince Charles. However, this isn’t necessarily the case. It’s their grandfather, Prince Philip, that passed along the taller genes (maybe height skips a generation?). Philip is the only other living member of the fam who has reached the six foot mark.
4. Princess Diana (5’10")
When we learned about Diana’s height, we honestly had to read the numbers again. The Princess of Wales stood at an impressive five feet, ten inches. As it turns out, her husband Prince Charles was also the same height, so Diana often avoided heels and tried to find ways to make herself look shorter.
5. Prince Charles (5’10")
Like we said, the Prince of Wales was also 5’10". Luckily, his second wife, Camilla Parker Bowles isn’t as tall as his first wife, Diana.
6. Kate Middleton (5’9")
She may not be 5’10" like her mother-in-law was, but the Duchess of Cambridge is still one of the tallest women in the royal gang. Plus, she also loves to wear heels, which probably gets her closer to around six feet at times.
7. Camilla Parker Bowles (5’8")
Right behind Kate is Camilla Parker Bowles. Standing at five feet, eight inches, when pictured next to her hubby, the Duchess of Cornwall definitely measures up.
8. Princess Anne (5’6")
Queen Elizabeth’s daughter might not be the tallest of the group, but she still beats her mother when it comes to height (more on that later). The Princess Royal also shares her exact height with a certain ex-member of the royal family...
9. Meghan Markle (5’6")
Yup. Meghan Markle is 5’6". The Duchess of Sussex most likely gets her shorter genes from her mother, Doria Ragland, who is also on the smaller side. With tall dad Prince Harry and petite mom Meghan Markle, we wonder where on the height spectrum their son Archie will fall.
10. Princess Eugenie (5’5")
The Princess of York and her sister, Beatrice, give each other a run for their money when it comes to height. However, Eugenie has a one-inch advantage over her sis.
11. Princess Beatrice (5’4")
She might not be as tall as her sister, but Beatrice can say something that no other member of her family can—she’s the same height as the Queen of England, which is who we’re guessing she gets her genes from.
12. Queen Elizabeth (5’4")
She may be the most powerful, however, Her Majesty is also the tiniest member of her royal squad. But, believe it or not, she was still taller than her mom, the Queen Mother, who stood at just 5’2" before her passing. before her passing.
