Kate Middleton Height

"My parents taught me about the importance of qualities like kindness, respect, and honesty, and I realize how central values like these have been to me throughout my life."

~ Kate Middleton

A prominent member of the British royal family, Kate Middleton or Catherine Elizabeth Middleton, is the Duchess of Cambridge. Her husband, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, is second in the line of succession to the British throne, which would surely make Kate a future queen.

Kate Middleton is tall, you can say that she is "queen-sized" and you would not be wrong in any way. Various websites on the internet describe her anywhere from 5-feet-9 inches to 5-feet-10 inches tall. Though from what we have seen of her, she looks like a typical 5'9" lady.

But how well or worse does Kate's height compares with other members of the royal family? Well, the royal family is tall. Prince Harry and Prince William are very tall at 6-feet-1½ inches and 6-feet-3 inches respectively. Their tall stature comes from their mother Princess Diana [RIP], who was around 5-feet-10 inches tall.

Queen Elizabeth was of average stature in her youth at 5-feet-4 inches but now with age, she is a lot shorter.

And now comes the duchess' sis-in-law Meghan Markle, who can be said to be the second shortest adult member of the royal family. By our professional guess, she is 5-feet-5 inches tall or close enough to it as to make no matter.

The height of Kate Middleton is

5'9" or 175 cm

"I am sure you will agree that all children deserve time, attention, and love from the adults in their lives. These basic qualities are so much more valuable than the always-changing material and social concerns that can seem so important to young people."
