Comment on the Height of Prince Charles

Steve said on 17/Aug/15
Prince Charles looked really short next to President Reagan. I doubt he was any taller than 5'9".
Nearly 5 10 said on 15/Aug/15
Yeah, he looks below 5' 10" today.

Spot on.

Rob, look at him next to Michael Jackson. And on other occasions with Princess Diana. Is 5' 11" peak height possible? Or was he a lift wearer back then?
[Editor Rob: I believe a guy like him might have wore a lift...5ft 10 range and 9 today I believe.]

Looked 5'9 on TV next to Obama last night.
Will said on 3/Jan/15
Prince Charles is exactly 5'9" tall. 100% agree with that. No questions asked.

5' 9" now.
Liam 176 said on 26/Oct/14
He looks 5' 9" now.
Vibram said on 8/Oct/14
Rob how tall are his brothers? They are listed 183cm on Royality pages. Do you have pages for them? I think Andrew maybe 180cm and Edward possibly the same. Next to 184cm Prime Minister David Cameron, the 180cm seems legit.
[Editor Rob: not looked at them much, but Edward kind looks in that 5ft 11 range yeah.]
Normal Norman said on 29/Aug/14
Yeah, bang on.

Maybe 5'11 peak?
Almost 5 10 said on 23/May/14
A definite 5' 9" in my opinion. The question is, has he shrunk - or did he used to wear lifts?
Vibram said on 21/May/14

Ehy Rob, how tall would you think Gordon Brown is?
[Editor Rob: somewhere in 5ft 11 range he generally could look]
Vibram said on 8/Mar/14
5ft9.25 / 176cm today, 177-178cm peak.
maverick said on 8/Dec/13
I met prince charles. He is no way 5'10". More like 5' 8"
Pascal 5 10 said on 3/Oct/13
Alan Titchmarsh is at least 5' 7.5". He claims 5' 9" but definitely isn't above 5' 8".
ian said on 1/Oct/13
Alan Titchmarsh?
Pascal 5 10 said on 13/Sep/13
Definitely 5' 9.5". Always looks a consistent height.
Craig 177 said on 29/Jul/13
5' 9.5" peak.

Rob, do you think he went through a 'lift-wearing phase' when he was married to Diana? He looked considerably taller than Michael Jackson - who was no shorter than 174 cm. Mamun reckoned Charles looked at least 5' 11" when he met him!
[Editor Rob: always possible to slip a half incher, but 5ft 11 I doubt that]
Billy Boy said on 18/Jul/13
5ft10 in the morning. A very nice man.
Craig 177 said on 3/Jul/13
177 cm peak without a doubt.

175 cm today.

in photos he looks little taller than diana both in low shoes when they were young, and he hes little shorter than carl gustav of sweden 5' 10.5, charles is maybe 5' 10 when he was young now is 5' 9.5, in photos whit george bush 5' 11 is little shorter than him. and at present day is same height that robert redford. redfor is maybe 5' 9.5, in photos is little taller than shia labeouf 5' 9. charles look shorter in photos but person from less 6' 1 looks smaller in photos and more with people higher.
Will said on 4/Jan/13
I agree that Prince Charles is 5ft 9 tall. He doesn't stand too tall though IMO.
little sue said on 27/Aug/12
In the past the Queen was always reported at 5ft 3. I would say she is under 5ft 2 now.
lucas said on 26/Aug/12
prince charles 5' 9' the heir of the throneis an inch shorter than the average british male. his first wife Diana towered over him - explaining why she favoured flat shoes during his marriage. still, at least Camilla is only 5' 6' Their royal lownesses (Or why, at 6ft 3in, Prince William towers over his titchy royal ancestors)

Just think: Charles & Diana were the same height!
JK said on 7/Sep/07
Harry and William i think are both 6'3''
Franco said on 7/Sep/07
he got **** posture when he walks, always hunching a bit.

90% of the time he looks like 181-182cm.

to conclude, i think Charles average height is 178cm most of the day and about 177cm at night.
anonymous said on 26/Aug/07
Charles is 2" taller than I. That would make him about 5' 10". Diana was maybe a smidgen over 5'11".
Anonymous said on 26/Aug/07
Ive seen him he looks about 5'11 to 6'1 to me. Hes also very thin.
LeeM said on 24/May/07
Ive met Prince Charles when he opened a residential units in Cornwall, UK and I shook his hand. Im about 5'11 and he was about an inch shorter.
Jenna said on 24/Mar/07
I have seen Prince Charles, albeit from about 15 meters distance, walking with a ton of the other royals, and I was surprised how small he was, considering he'd seemed quite tall next to Lady Diana. He didn't tower over any of the other royals, and looked a midget when near the Danish princes for instance. I'd guess he was 174-175 cms tops.
MD said on 12/Jan/07
It does help. He's looking much shorter than 5'9"/5'10", these days, but I guess he would with his age. Either way, it looks like Charle's squeezed every inch out of that side of his family that he could.
tubbs said on 11/Jan/07
My dad met Phillip in the late 80's at a ceremony where he worked MD. My dad is around the 6'1 mark, when I asked him how tall Phillip was I was expecting 6'0 plus, I was shocked when he said 5'9, 5'10 tops. He's pretty good at judging heights, and he said he couldn't believe it either as he was expecting a 6ft plus guy. It's probably to do with him being very thin, who knows, hope this helps MD!
MD said on 10/Jan/07
How tall is Prince Philip these days, BTW? He doesn't strike me as tall, and never has. I guess relative to the Queen's family he's pretty tall, but only relative.
Anonymous said on 9/Jan/07
Where do you get the idea that 5'10" is short for an aristocrat?

Until recently most of the Windsor/Saxe Coburg Gotha family (the British royal family) were fairly short. HM the Queen is only about 5' tall, Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother was even shorter. The late Duke of Windsor (King Edward VII) was about 5'6" and King George VI wasn't much taller. The current generation of which Prince Charles is a part have benefitted from the much taller Prince Philip's genes.
Austrian said on 30/Dec/06
wtf? i thought i was taller than that, over 6' easily

5'10 is short for an aristocrate
Glenn said on 2/Dec/06
Didnt someone on another page have the nerve to say he was 5-8?
Middle-sized Cat said on 5/Oct/06
Someone once told me that Prince Edward was way shorter than Charles; I once read that he was 6'3"! The truth must be in the middle...
Matt said on 8/Aug/06
Prince Charles came to my school. I'd give him a definite 5'9.5-5'10.5 ... definitely no less. I stood right next to him; I'm 5'9 exactly, and he was a bit taller .. I doubt he'd wear lifts
Nombat said on 12/Nov/05
Wait a minute !!! I saw Diana stand up and compared to Charles she was way taller than Charles and would still be taller than George Bush and even Camilla!! Camilla looks taller than Laura Bush but I think Diana would be the tallest of all of them!!!
Sean B said on 6/Nov/05
was wondering? saw Bush stand next to Charles on his visit to the U.S amd it was clear that Charle was a little taller when they stood next 2 each other thought Bush was taller!

I think that such marriages are eugenic and forced marriages, and infringe human rights. But they usually give good results. Humbert II, the last king of Italy, son of King Victor Emmanuel III (154 cm) and of Queen Hélène (about 180 cm), was 186 cm tall.
Italian University Librarian said on 25/Oct/05
Many princes married, or were forced to marry, girls taller than them. In 1896 Prince Victor Emmanuel, then King Victor Emmanuel III of Italy (154 cm), married Princess Hélène of Montenegro (about 180 cm). Considering the increase in the average height of Italian men since then, I'm approximately as short as Victor Emmanuel was, so I believe that, if I were a crown prince, my parents would have forced me to marry a princess taller than Hélène.
Bill said on 21/Apr/05
And he wore lifts for the wedding in 81, but I saw him on a walkabout a few years back and 5-91/2 to 5-10 is about right.

The following is a quote from the FAQ on Diana/Charles by Yvonne Demoskoff

"Diana was taller than her husband. Charles is 5' 9 1/2" tall, while Diana was 5' 10". (Other sources state that Charles was 5'10" and that Diana was 5'11".) Charles looked taller on occasion but that was either because he was standing on a step behind his wife, or because Diana was wearing flat-heeled shoes. As time went on and Diana gained more confidence, she gradually took to wearing shoes with slightly more heels"

I would agree. Diana did look to kind of stoop slightly and cock her head downwards in the earlier years of their marriage. Charles might have been 5ft 10 earlier on, but these days looks the 177cm.
