The relationship between Princess Diana and Prince Charles has people asking questions about the height difference between the former couple. Is it true that Diana was taller than Charles? These are the details.
Was Princess Diana taller than Prince Charles?
In reality, Diana was not taller than Charles. According to Good to Know, Diana and Charles both stood at around 5'10”. Although Diana's height proved that she was a few inches taller than an average woman living in the United Kingdom, she still wasn’t taller than Charles.
In several staged photos of Charles and Diana together, they were posed in ways to make Charles appear taller than her. It’s easy to notice this type of detail in their wedding photos and their engagement pictures. Diana and Charles's matching height had nothing to do with the fact that their relationship was quite tumultuous, though.
According to Express, they were both dissatisfied with their relationship and sought out extramarital affairs throughout their 15-year marriage. They separated in 1992 and finalized their divorce in 1996. They had two sons before everything fell apart. And, interestingly enough, their sons ended up growing to be much taller than both of them. Prince William is around 6'2” and Prince Harry is around 6'1”.
