Diana was 5'10 and Charles once said that he was 5'11, when he appeared on a Blue Peter interview in the 1980's.

If Charles was 178cm, Diana was 179-180cm.

I saw her clothing on display today and she really was a very tall woman to carry off many of those dresses.

She was a true 5'10. There's a story that Freddie Mercury would dress her up in as a man (which was easily pulled off by her height and dare i say 'handsome' features) and she'd go unnoticed! The Queen of the Netherlands, The Queen of Denmark, The Crown Princess of Norway and the Princess of Monaco are the only other Royal woman currently who share Diana's height or are slightly taller.

Rob, could Diana have been a fraction over 5ft10?
[Editor Rob: not sure I'd go that high for her]

Definitely gives the impression of being a little loftier than Kidman in that photo. Moreover she is visibly larger in the head and upper body.
Her butler is in print as saying she always gave her height as 5'10'' and three quarters of an inch, and she herself always mentioning the three quarters of an inch. I think she was indeed a quarter of an inch under 5'11'' with perfect posture like people use when measured, but like many tall women Diana didn't stand very straight. Anyway, her butler says that is what she said she was and that is the closest you are ever going to ever get to the truth IMO.

@ Sarah Princess Diana was Nicole Kidman's height Click Here
So no way she was just 5'6. She was at LEAST 5'10, maybe a little taller.

My father always told me that Princess Diana is only 5'6". So 5'10" I think is a little too tall for her.

to 'im a shortie so everyone is tall to me'

two 5.10 people male aqnd female are technically not the same height. A 5.10 woman is like a 6.3 man. It somehow makes Charles short masculine wise.

ArjunaKorale says: I agree with you completely about Naomi Watts playing Diana - she is just way too short to even remotely resemble the erect Diana.
Maybe 5f8.5 Cate Blanchett would have been a viable choice.

@Arch Stanton: I agree with you completely about Naomi Watts playing Diana - she is just way too short to even remotely resemble the erect Diana. Charlize Theron is definitely a better choice play Diana, but surely she is way too sexy to play the Princess!
Pascal 5 10 said on 13/Sep/13
Yes Arch, spot on. In fact, I'd guess them to be exactly the same height - 5' 9.75".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Aug/13
Charlize Theron, Daryl Hannah, Gwyneth Paltrow, Cate Blanchett or Uma Thurman.
All are tall, leggy blondes and superb actresses.

BTW, I think she may have been 179cm

i don't understand why naomi watts who i think is around 5'3 is gonna play diana. not only is she too short but she looks nothing like diana.

Charlize Theron would be the best candidate to play Diana.

Not strictly true as a woman of 5ft 7 would be fairly tall but a bloke the same height would be fairly short.
I \'m a shortie so everyone is tall to me said on 23/Apr/13
I have always thought Diana and Charles were tall. I mean if you look at photos of them standing around, they are usually the tallest. They look about the same height to me. And how is 5' 10 short? How do you have two people be the same height roughly, and one is tall and one is short? That makes no sense reguardless of gender. They were both tall. Period.

According to one article, Diana's average height was measured at 5'10 3/4 and to her publicists, she always insisted to include the addition 3/4 inch. Her publicists, however, seemed bent on establishing her as 5'10 globally, for certain reasons. Maybe her publicists deemed it appropriate to project her height to be shorter than Philip's. Likewise, with Kate Middleton, she's described as 5'10 in most articles, though she is clearly shorter than the 5'10 range.

I'd agree with you jtm, weird piece of casting

@Galv, how did Diana know the boys got their height from her side of the family? William was only 15 when she died and Harry was 12, nearly 13, and significantly shorter than William at the time. I thought it was the Queen or Prince Philip who remarked about their height, saying they got it from their mother, once they got a bit older?

I think Diana was around 5' 10.5". Charles is/was 5' 10" and she was said to be slightly taller than he was. She wore flats to make him appear taller and only later did she feel confident enough to wear heels.
