Not only is Harriet the niece of Sir Christopher Lee on her Mum's side, she is the great great great granddaughter of John Walter, the founder of The Times newspaper, so she has famous roots on both sides.
In shoes, she looks taller than Bradley Walsh in 'Law and Order UK'.

⭐ I'd like to revise what I said about the part Harriet played in the 'Inspector Morse' episode 'The Day of the Devil'. She wasn't a prison officer. She was as psychiatric doctor who helped suss out the head of the Satanist. She had an ulterior motive! 😲

@ Rob - What was her peak height?
5ft 7 or a bit over I still would go for, not as tall as 5ft 8 I don't believe.

This is right up Harriet's Uncle Christopher Lee's street! Harriet is playing a prison officer in the 'Inspector Morse' episode 'The Day of the Devil', pretending to an imprisoned Satanist to be 'Asteroth's medium', learning all about Satanism so that she can humour - and understand - the Satanist, played by Keith Allen. I bet Uncle Christopher watched it and was glued to his TV set, proud of his niece's performance!
Harriet looks about 5ft7 in this, so that is what she gets.

@ Greg - What an incredible discovery -thanks to you; I had no idea whatsoever!
I just checked this out on Google to find that the great Christopher Lee was her maternal Uncle. Being 5ft7 is therefore, as you said, hardly surprising. She is an OBE and doesn't look anywhere near her 68 years.
I will go with 5ft7.25, having just noticed the average vote of 5ft7.63.

How tall would she have been in her prime days?
Editor Rob: never realised she was in mid 60's now...

The late Chrostopher Lee's niece so no surprise she's quite tall. Very tidy too.

I always thought Ms. Walter was much taller, perhaps it's because she is so so slim.

Did? you know she is descended from John Walter, the founder of The Times newspaper
