Upon first glance, the Prince and Princess of Wales look wayyyyy taller than the king and queen. But that is, in fact, not true. In case you didn’t know, William is a whopping six feet and three inches. So, he is undoubtedly the tallest royal family member out of the bunch.
In the portrait, Princess Catherine appears to be mere inches shorter than her husband (and taller than the king). But that is far from the truth. Standing at five feet, nine inches, Princess Catherine has her heels to thank for the height boost. While Catherine is taller than her mother-in-law, Queen Camilla (who is five feet, eight inches), she isn’t taller than her father-in-law, King Charles, who stands at five feet, ten inches.
Now, this isn’t the first time we (and royal admirers alike) noticed this. Back in September 2022, the four royals posed for a photo together ahead of the reception for Heads of State and Official Overseas Guests at Buckingham Palace. While donning all-black ensembles, Princess Catherine appears to tower over the king and queen, despite the monarch being taller than the royal mom of three.
