173cm to 175.5cm PEAK
167cm to 169cm NOW 2023

You are very funny. He was 5’10-5’10.5 during his peak, there is proof, he edged out (RIP) Diana.

And today he stands at around 5’9. Maybe 5’8.5. But I doubt that he have shrunk that much that he’s 5’8 flat today, or lower.

Look at him in the photos during his recent visit to France next to Macron, knowing that Macron wears lifts he has to stand about 180 in his shoes, Charles 3 doesn't seem to be wearing any and looks 5 cm shorter than macron so let's say 175 cm in his shoes.

so I think he measures 172 or 173 cm maximum in 2023.

I agree, Charles needs a quarter of an inch upgrade Rob or maybe half an inch if being generous...

5ft10 and change peak is arguable. Edged out Diana

I found a few more photos of King Charles with Vladimir Putin from 1994: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Rob, I think there is enough evidence that King Charles was over 5ft 10. An upgrade of at least 0.25 inch would be very positive, King Charles deserves it.
Nik Ashton said on 1/Sep/23
@ James B 172cm - At his peak (autocorrect tried to change peak to Leah!) he was above average back then and compared to nowadays folk! Now he’s really into the pack in terms of height.

@5'10 Abdul I would agree, Charles definitely was 179cm in his peak.

I think 5ft 10.25-10.5 is fairer for the peak height of the new king of United Kingdom. Here are some photos of him with Putin from 1994: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
King Charles looked near four inches taller than the President of Russia. Rob, I think 5ft 10.25 is the minimum in his prime and even 5ft 10.5 is arguable number.

⭐️ I thought of this briefly-lived Tudor monarch in the early hours of the morning, when King Charles’s reign WAS 9 days old.
Sandy Cowell said on 15/May/23
King Charles III has reigned for nine days now. It occurred to me today that Lady Jane Grey, who was a Protestant, reigned for only nine days. She refused to relinquish the throne and so was beheaded, in favour of Mary I, who restored the country to Catholicism.

I read 5ft for Lady Jane Grey. SHE WAS ONLY SIXTEEN. The girl had a hunchback, obviously taking inches from her height. Her great grandfather was the first Tudor monarch, Henry VII. She lived from 1537 until 1554. Her husband died the same way, with the young girl.

King Charles can't be more than 5'9" these days if Boris Johnson is 5'9". Pictures of them stood together show that Charles is the same height at best if not a fraction shorter. In his prime he was probably around 5'10" but now he's 5'9" at most.

Why have he shrunk much, if he used to be 179, and now he is reported/viewed as being only 175.5 cm??

Have he been through injuries, or does his family genetically shrink more than usual??
Editor Rob
Age and wear & tear might have made him shrink a bit more than average.

Well I saw the new Kings waxwork a few years back at madame tussauds London. I'm 190cm tall and the figure was approx 5ft 9in my nose height. Waxworks are very accurate in general.

Matt N said on 25/Sep/22
I’m not sure about his peak (I could see 5’10” based on the picture that Rob has put above), but I’m afraid that I’m genuinely not sure I can see Charles being above 5’8” these days.

When he met Liz Truss, who’s listed at 5’5.25”, recently (Click Here), he did not appear much taller than her (no more than an inch, I’d say; they almost looked the same height at times), and her footwear advantage over him appeared to be no more than 2” (her heels looked no more than 3”, whereas he was wearing a regular shoe of ~1”).

What are your thoughts, Rob? To me, at least, I struggle to see Charles much above 5’8” these days based on what I can see here and in other photos and videos.
Editor Rob
Might still manage to measure over 5ft 8, but I can see how he sometimes just looks a 5ft 8 guy nowadays.
Bobby said on 23/Sep/22
I feel sorry for him. He ascended to the throne at 73 years old. In the good old days, he'd have been 10 years old or no older than 20. Such a shame.

That poor man looked exhausted at his mother’s funeral on Monday. 🥲

It’s hardly surprising when you think what he’s been through, yet he’s had to bravely continue with his new role as our King.

I so hope he is given the chance to put his feet up, eat well and recover. Obviously, things will never be the same for him. He’s lost his dear mother. It happens to us all, being nature’s way, but not many of us have to do our mourning in the public eye.

I think towards the end of this video Charles looks 5ft10.25 with 6ft at that stage Reagan. I think 10.25 peak for Charles isn't unreasonable, could look less than 2 inches shorter than solid 6fter Phillip too when Phillip was still at peak.
christopher.mooney said on 16/Sep/22
Charles is taller than Kate Middle, when she is wearing heels. But you have Kate as being taller than Charles. This is what happens when you try and downgrade everyone - things stop making sense. He's probably still 5'10

Charles is now King and he has shown an extraordinary amount of character in speaking to the nation after his Mum passed away recently. It is clear he is devoted to his whole family and the whole nation too, he may be average in terms of his height but he is a true giant just like his late Mum was.
Abdul-DK said on 10/Sep/22
179 cm peak, today 175.5 cm.
Paul_177 said on 10/Sep/22
Also, that would put Princess Diana closer to 5' 9".

Like many, I used to think she was at least 5' 10". But she did struggle at times to look over 5' 9", when just wearing regular footwear.

Either way, I now think the current listings for them are the absolute maximum.

Maybe a slight adjustment to 5' 9.75" peak for King Charles, and 5' 9.25" for Queen of Hearts Diana, would be best Rob.
Paul_177 said on 10/Sep/22

He's looking close to 3.5" shorter than 6' 0.5" Reagan in that photo above.

Are we sure King Charles wasn't just a 5' 9-9.5" guy who wore increased footwear at times, to give the illusion of 5' 10-11" which he often easily pulled off?

I still feel that for an active guy like The King, to lose the amount he already has at only 73 is a bit much!

There's no denying he looks 173-4 cm now. But maybe he really did top out at 176.5 cm?

What are your thoughts?
Editor Rob
Maybe slight tilt in Reagan's favour, but I do think in his prime, Charles was roughly 5ft 10.
Sandy Cowell said on 10/Sep/22
King Charles the Third gave a very moving speech yesterday, which could be seen during the Church service at Saint Paul’s Cathedral at 6 in the evening. He talked about his dear mother, and her devotion to her countries, and vowed that he would serve his people in the same way.

He will indeed make a good King. 👑

Elon's brother was looking 6 ft 4 in photo with Charles and his Tesla, maybe he had a bit of footwear advantage and Charles is nearer 5 ft 8 now as I think his brother is about 6 ft 3.
Arch Stanton said on 9/Sep/22
King Charles III now! Hard in that you have to deal with constant press scrutiny, cultivate a public persona and be consistently active and caring about a range of issues you might not otherwise care much about. When it comes to wealth, luxury and privilege, quite the opposite of course. I certainly wouldn't trade positions with any of them.
Sandy Cowell said on 9/Sep/22
How hard must it be to be a Royal?

Charles and his siblings have lost their beloved Mummy and yet they have to put on a brave face, as do Her Majesty’s grandchildren. The great grandchildren are still so very young, but they’ll look back and remember the 8th September in future times.

Charles will be crowned King Charles III. Our late Queen was so young when she lost her father, yet she had to make speeches to the nation. For a 25-year-old, taking on the role as Queen and Head of the State won’t have been easy, but she did, and she kept all her promises to us and excelled herself for seven long decades.

Yesterday marked the end of an era. One of the saddest days ever….. 🥲

Sorry don’t get me wrong, but he wasn’t tall being young, maybe above average, or kinda tallish, but definitely not tall.

Yeah your right probably more avoid than legit tall.

Always a chance he could have been 5ft10.25

Paul 177 cm said on 29/Jun/22
Definitely time for a 5' 8.25" current listing now.

I think 5' 10" peak height is correct (he could pull off 5' 10 75" with 'good footwear' when he was with Princess Diana).

Then by his mid-late 50s, he was looking 5' 9.5"

Held 5' 9.25" until about 2012.

Then has since lost a further inch.

A 1.75" loss at only 73 is pretty excessive, but then he has sustained injuries from polo.
Editor Rob
Still a chance of 8.5 if measured, I'll give him that today.
Paul 177 cm said on 28/Jun/22
Just checked out the array of recent photos of him with Boris Johnson (who looks more 176 cm in person).

There looks to be close to an inch between them now.

Charles is down to 173/174 cm (5' 8.25") now.

Basically your sort of height, Rob!
Paul 177 cm said on 28/Jun/22

Could Prince have been a more solid 5ft 10 range? Yeah I can see the case, I think he could have lost 1.5 inches at least by now.

I still think Charles needs a 1/4 inch upgrade, he very often looked over 5ft 10 back in the 90's and 80's. Rob, I hope you saw the photos of him with Nelson Mandela from 1997.

Rob, have you seen enough to give Charles a 5ft 10.25?
Rory said on 17/Apr/21
I think id definitely rule out 6ft2 and 6ft1 for Phillip. Id probably rule out 5ft11.5 too, that looks too low. I thought intially maybe weak six foot, but a solid six foot could be possible too. Id probably go six foot myself now.

Theres pictures of him next to prince Charles in 1972 where he was probably still at or near peak and he looked about 2 inches taller. Maybe Charles 5ft10.25,Philip 6ft.
Rory said on 16/Apr/21
Id go for 5ft11.75 peak for Prince Phillip. Looked around 5ft8 in his last few years.

@ Rob - How tall was Prince Philip in his prime?
Editor Rob
He's been described 5ft 11.5, 6ft, 6ft 1 and 2. In the same book that mentioned he was 5ft 11.5 there was another segment giving his stats as 6ft 1 with 38" Chest, 30" Waist and 42" Hips. I am not sure..
suzyq said on 13/Apr/21
Nothing on the late Prince Philip? I saw pictures of him next to Princess Diana and he was demonstratively taller. In his later pictures he was shorter than Kate Middleton. I realize he was nearly 100 but I have never seen someone shrink so much in height.
OriginalAnon said on 10/Apr/21
Prince Philip looks like he would be at least 6'1'' during his prime or maybe over. He was definitely tall. People forget that he was of pensioner age since the 80's and people often lose height in their late 40's and 50's. Philip might have been close to 6'2'' prime.
Almost 180cm guy said on 16/Mar/21
I still believe that 5ft 10.25 is more suited to Charles than the flat 5ft 10. In these two photos from 1993 Charles next to Catherine Zeta Jones looked comfortable over 5ft 10: Click Here Click Here
Rob, have you seen enough to give him peak height 1/4 inch over 5ft 10?

Personally, I have no doubts that Charles was 5ft 10.25. This is evidenced by his photos alongside Nelson Mandela from 1997: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
The difference between them seemed slight. Rob, I think a fraction of over 5ft 10 should be okay for his peak height.
Almost 180cm guy said on 19/Dec/20
Well, I think it's time to update. Charles today is probably under 5ft 9 already. And his peak height was definitely a good 5ft 10.25. Well, since Nixon still had 5ft 10.25 during his presidency, Charles definitely wasn't a shorter than him. Their joint photos from 1969: Click Here Click Here
Although in 1997 he met George H W Bush and even though he was 73, Bush could still look a good four inches taller than Charles who was only 48-49 at the time: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Maybe 5ft 10.5 is good for Nixon's peak height and while I still believe 6ft 2.25 for George H W Bush, Charles deserves a 1/4 inch upgrade to his peak height and a 1/4 inch downgrade to his current height in my opinion. Rob, are you going to give Charles a peak height of 5ft 10.25 and a current height of 5ft 8.75? I can't believe he lost only an inch at 72, today he must be over inch shorter than 20 or 30 years ago for me.

I'm still convinced that Charles in the 70's, 80's and 90's had over 5ft 10. I found one more picture of him next to Ronald Reagan from 1981: Click Here
Please Rob, look at his photos from 1994 with Putin again, Charles really looked good four inches taller than Putin: Click Here Click Here
I also recently looked at his latest photos next to William and Harry and I can't see him today as tall as a full 5ft 9. Rob, his peak height definitely needs an upgrade to 5ft 10.25 and his current height needs a downgrade to 5ft 8.75.
Editor Rob
I can see why 5ft 10 and change is arguable for a peak, he looks like he has lost over an inch from the 80's till now.
Paul 177 said on 27/Apr/20
Hi Rob,

I've seen him looking nearer 5' 8.5" recently; with Donald Trump, Daniel Craig and Craig David in particular.

He was at least 5' 10" peak height. In fact, during his marriage to Princess Diana he often appeared close to 5' 11".

He looked closer to 5' 11" than 5' 10" with Michael Jackson and looked at least 1.5" taller than Diana at their wedding. Even Mamum said Charles looked at least 5' 11" and Diana 177 cm when he met them. This gives me the impression that Charles wore lifts at times...

What surprises me though, is that he appears to have already lost 1.5" at only 71! Doesn't that seem quite a bit for an active person of that age?

Interestingly, Sir Paul McCartney (age 77) and Sir Rod Stewart (age 75) appear to have only lost 0.75" absolute maximum. Mick Jagger's another one who is holding up well!

Would love to hear your opinion on these observations.

Cheers - and wishing you and your folks well during these very uncertain times.
Editor Rob
Charles has had a few accidents which might have made him lose a fraction more. He has been looking to struggle at times with the 5ft 9 mark.
Nearly 180cm guy said on 8/Apr/20
Today Charles may already be under 5ft 9, so I think peak height 5ft 10.25 and current height 5ft 8.75 would be more accurate for him. In 1981, when Ronald Reagan was around 6ft then Charles could look even 5ft 10.5 next to him (see from 3:09): Click Here Click Here
In 1994, Charles met Putin and he looked good 4 inches taller than him: Click Here Click Here Click Here
Charles was 45-6 then and Putin was 41-2 so in my opinion it is impossible for them to lose any height then. I think 5ft 6.5 may be fine for Putin and 5ft 10.25 is just better for Charles than flat 5ft 10. Rob, are you going to update his list?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Mar/20
He looks to be struggling with 5ft9 these days. Peak was definitely a solid 5ft10, if not a bit over

Hi rob I have a picture of my 182cm brother (I measured myself and that’s his mid point height throughout the day) and prince charles shaking hands. My brother towered he was slouching down too and clearly looks a good 4-5 inches taller than him. I refuse to believe prince charles is 5”9 and 5”10 peak. More like 5”8.5 peak and 5”8 now. I would like to upload it to show you, how do I do it?
Editor Rob
Charles is looking shorter these days, even Daniel Craig recently looked a couple of inches taller, so 5ft 8 range is what he is starting to look. If you go back 30 years, he did seem more 5ft 10 range.

I found one interesting picture of Prince Charles with David Prowse from 1981:
Click Here
Well, Prowse at this time could have had 6'4.75" at worst case because in 1980 he still looked like around 6'5". Rob, I could see the argument that Charles could be 5'10.5" in his prime but I'm asking you to give him at least 5'10.25" because flat 5'10" seems to be a bit too low for him.
Editor Rob
It's arguable that Charles could have been 178-9 range, I would have said he was barefoot taller than diana.
Arch Stanton said on 18/Nov/19 has Prince Philip at 6 ft 2 LOL. Still no page for him on here I see.

Following on from my recent comment - the angle of the pictures I saw earlier must have been just enough to favour old Charles. Looking at these, he seems slightly shorter than DC - but still perhaps closer in height than I would have expected.

Charles looks 5ft 8 in some of the pictures of Trump's visit to UK when next to Trump who I think is a weak 6ft

I'd give Charles a strong 5ft10 and Diana a weak 5ft10 both at peak
James Brett said on 15/Jan/19
5ft10.25 peak rob?
Editor Rob
A chance...all that riding Horses he's been doing during his life has damaged his body a bit more than your average worker.

I wonder with Diana at times whether he was tempted to wear a small lift...he doesn't really seem the guy to do so, but then I've said this before - when my neighbour discovered I ran this site and then mentioned to me he used to wear lifts (and this is a guy who was over 5ft 10 and the least likely candidate I'd ever consider as a lift-wearer), I realised you just never know who might be wearing them...
Elvinas said on 7/Jan/19
I don't seem to understand, something isn't right, look at this video: Click Here Prince Charles is just a little shorter like 2-3 inches than Anthony Joshua who is about 6'5-6'6, it's either that I don't know something or he wears elevator shoes.

🎂 Happy Birthday Prince Charles! 🎂

Yes, it's the big 7-0 today, and hasn't the time just flown by?

I'll be watching his celebratory show tonight at 8 o'clock on ITV1, (repeated on Friday night at 10.45) with its massive all-star cast, including Rowan Atkinson!

Hope it's a good one, Your Highness!

5ft10 peak, 5ft9 now.

He is only 5.9 in height how did he end up with 2 6 foot sons! usually brothers differ in height,not all brothers r the same in height.

Probably because his father (Prince phillip) was 6ft tall and not only that, princess diana was very tall for a woman at 5'10 and her brother looks even taller than her (earl spencer) thats the interesting thing about genetics, its not as clear cut as it may seem its very complex, it is even possible to be short with tall parents - scott caan is an example
MAD SAM said on 10/Jun/18
Yea he claimed his height accurately alright
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jun/18
I think Mountbatten was at least 6ft1
Sandy Cowell said on 7/Jun/18
👂 I don't think Charles has done too badly if he's suffered just a one-inch height-loss at 70-odd years of age. 👂

He can have 5ft10 for his peak; 5ft9 for today's height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jun/18
Rob, how tall do you think Lord Mountbatten was?

I’ve seen 5ft11 descriptions out there and next to Charles he looked it when he would have been quite old but then there’s photos from years earlier of him with Philip (peak supposedly 6ft) and he looked taller. Maybe 6ft1-2 range peak?
Editor Rob
I don't think I've ever seen anything of Lord Mountbatten, but at his peak I'd say he was over 6ft.
Vijayan said on 6/Jun/18
Fair enough then Rob. But why not upgrade Charles to a 5'10.5 peak height?
Editor Rob
I am not sure he really was that tall, but of course it's not impossible...5ft 11 I'd rule out entirely.
Vijayan said on 5/Jun/18

He is not even 70 yet, and appears to have lost 2 inches. Or at least very close to it. On average, men lose only 1 inch when they reach 70. I wouldn't rule out 174 cm for Prince Charles today, but doesnt look over 175 cm in general.
Editor Rob
He has had some injuries through his life. Herniated discs and joint problems from all that Polo.
Natalie_M said on 2/Jun/18
Prince Charles is old and slouches which may explain why he looks shorter than 5ft9. But I wouldn't rule out that he may have lost several inches due to being an elderly man. If his peak height was almost 5ft11, then his current height is 5ft8 at best.
Alistair_21 said on 27/May/18
I don't know about his heyday, but now Charles isn't even 5ft8. Looked the same height with the Greek prime minister and Camilla was shorter than the Greek pm's wife. The Greek pm is a short guy and his wife is tiny.

BilboBaggins said on 18/May/18
Charles stands somewhere in the region of 5' 9"-ish nowadays. In his prime, he was definitely about 5' 11.
mrtguy said on 6/Apr/18
Rob, if Prince Charles was standing to today's OJ Simpson could you see 2.5-3'' differnce??
Editor Rob
If OJ is 6ft flat, then about 3 inches...Prince Charles doesn't seem above 5ft 9 these days.

By the time he becomes the King of England he'll be 5ft 8.
BilboBaggins12 said on 16/Mar/18
In photos of Charles standing alongside 5' 10" Luciano Pavarotti (this would have been late '80s and early '90s), Charles appears a little taller than Pavarotti. Also, in photos of Charles meeting The Spice Girls (in their various, high-heeled, platform footwear - aside from Mel C, who's wearing trainers) in 1998, Charles still dwarfs them. Even 5' 6" Mel C. Mel B/Scary Spice, who's a little over 5' 4", would have stood at least 5' 9" in those gigantic platform shoes you can see her wearing on that occasion - and yet Charles looks much more visibly taller than her... So, whatever about that 1981 afticle, I would put Charles' peak height as closer to 5' 11".
James B 170.8cm said on 7/Mar/18

Editor Rob
it's a filler article that, because you have the upper right portion of a stamp occupied, it makes sense to position the heads in that way!

they've done the old 'What is 178cm in feet' and been shown - quite correctly - 5.84 feet.

Of course we know 0.84 of a foot doesn't mean 8.4 inches because a foot is a base 12 measurement.

Let's face it, when he and Diana were in their prime and wearing similar footwear, he was just a fraction of an inch taller than her. 5'10.5" in the morning to 5'9.5" at night in his prime. Now-a-days, 5'9". Here he is with 5'11.5" (as stated on his official presidential physical) President Bush. Bush is standing closer to the camera, and Charles is blatantly exemplifying a slouch. They look to be very similar.

What's going on here, Rob? Is Bush not a legitimate 5'11.5" to 6-footer? Do you think that he fabricated his claims? Love to know what you think Rob.

I met Prince Charles back in 1999 whilst I was at Britannia Royal Naval College Dartmouth and I was at parade attention when he stood in front of me and I had to look down at him. I am 6ft straight (without shoes) so 5ft 8 to 9 inches (without shoes) for Prince Charles would seem about right.
Montyguy said on 25/Apr/11
Several years ago during their tour of the Caribbean Commonwealth countries, I was introduced to Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall at a reception on Montserrat. I am just over 6 feet tall and in shaking his hand I looked down several inches at him. My estimate of his height would be 5'9" The thing I remember noticing, however, is how red and swollen his right hand was. They'd been on tour for about 2 weeks by then and God knows how many hands, less gentle than mine, he'd had to shake.

5' 11.75" Tony Blair
5' 11" George W Bush and Gordon Brown
5' 9.5" Boris Johnson

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!

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.

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
Stephanie said on 19/May/06
Camilla is 5' 5" and Diana was somewhere between 5' 10" and 5' 11" (and wore heels in the later years, making her appear even taller). Charles is in the 5' 9.5"-5' 10" range. So Nombat is correct that Diana would be the tallest of them. Unless you count the children. William is like 6' 2" or 6' 3" so he's the tallest.

An email from a man named Tim:

"My Friend (the guy in the right of the picture in the link below) is 177cm and photos of the two show that they are roughly the same height, though my friend looks just a little taller. When I saw PC at a distance (10 feet away) I thought he wasn't more that about 170 (I'm 181+ and he looked half a head shorter). I'd say that this is due to his meet and great habit of craning forward to talk.

I'd say the 175-177 range is about right, erring on the lower side"

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.

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.

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.
