The Queen may look short, but she’s probably taller than you think.


The world looks up to Queen Elizabeth as the longest-reigning monarch in the British history. In-spite of having that impressive title, she’s certainly not above everyone else.

 Wondering what we are talking about? Well, here you go.

At just 5’4″ tall, Her Majesty is actually pretty average. In fact, even short by some standards. While Queen Elizabeth is on par with the average woman in the United stated, she falls below the average European woman.

The European woman stands at 5’6″.

In her immediate royal family, Her Majesty is among the shortest. Although, this does not include the royal kids.

And if she appears heads below her own husband, children, and grandchildren, it’s because most of them have more than a few inches on she does.

And, this does not end here at all.

When coupled with her choice of brightly coloured outfits that she preferably wears, the height disparity is even more pronounced in photos from all official events.

But the Queen’s measurements don’t detract from her most important and the highest role as head of the state in 16 commonwealth countries.

In fact, one could argue that her stature is partly what makes her one of the most recognisable and influencing figures in the world. Also, when everyone else has to bow down to you, it does not really matter where you fall on the measuring stick.
