Meghan Markle Height

"I've never wanted to be a lady who lunches -- I've always wanted to be a woman who works."

~ Meghan Markle

Former actress and now a prominent member of the British royal family.

How tall is Meghan, Duchess of Sussex? How well she measures up to the other members of the royal family? 

The members of the British royal family are pretty tall. Prince Harry's (6'1½") and Prince William's (6'3") towering height comes from their tall mother -- Princess Diana (5'10"), while Kate Middleton (5'9") also happens to be tall.

Anyway, Meghan Markle's height is listed as anywhere from 5-feet-5 inches to 5-feet-7 inches on the internet.

After taking a careful look at her and comparing her height to that of people such as Priyanka Chopra (5-feet-6 inches), her own sister in law Kate Middleton (5-feet-9 inches), and some more -- we have to say that Meghan looks closer to 5'5" rather than 5'7".

A few more such height comparisons with a few more interesting people confirmed our impression of Meghan Markle's height.

So if Meghan Markle is closer in height to any member of the royal family -- it is Queen Elizabeth II, who was 5-feet-4 inches tall in her prime but is quite a bit shorter now due to age.

The real height of Meghan Markle is

5'5" or 165 cm
