Princess Diana Height

"Only do what your heart tells you."

~ Princess Diana

A prominent member of the British royal family, Diana, Princess of Wales was the first wife of Charles, Prince of Wales, and mother of Prince William and Prince Harry.

Princess Diana is remembered for her activism and glamour which made her an international icon and one of the most popular people in the world at the time.

Princess Diana was also known for her queen-sized regal stature. She was super tall for a woman of her time. Many websites (including Google) describe Princess Diana's height anywhere from 5-feet-8 inches to 5-feet-10 inches. 

From our own observation, the Princess clearly looks to be near 5'10" than any other number, which makes her around the same height as Prince Charles (though he is a bit shorter now due to age).

It seems that Princess Diana's height genes also passed to her sons Prince Harry and Prince Williams who are both tall at 6-feet-1½ inches and 6-feet-3 inches respectively.

Princess Diana's daughter-in-law Kate Middleton is tall and very close to her height as well at 5-feet-9 inches. Meghan Markle is a bit shorter at 5-feet-5 inches.

Queen Elizabeth was 5-feet-4 inches tall in her prime but she has lost some height due to age.

The height of Princess Diana was

5'10" or 178 cm
