Princess Diana and Prince Charles have several photos over the years. However, some fans are baffled because they noticed a strange detail in their pictures over the years, from their engagement to the time they welcomed their sons Prince William and Prince Harry.
Princess Diana And Prince Charles' Photos Have This Strange Detail
The Prince and Princess of Wales had been married for 15 years. They had attended various engagements together in the UK and abroad. However, some royal fans noticed an odd detail in their pictures — Prince Charles looks taller most of the time.
In some photos, royal watchers noticed that the heir apparent is several inches taller than his wife. However, in reality, they have the same height. They both stand 1.78 meters of under 5ft 9 inches.
When the couple stood together for Prince William's debut shortly after his arrival, the Prince and Princess of Wales were clearly of the same height. However, in some official photos for their engagement, anniversary and family portraits, Prince Charles looks significantly taller when he is actually not.
The issue about their photos came to light when an old stamp featuring Prince William and Prince Harry's parents went viral, Mirror reported. The netizens shared their thoughts why the royal prince looked taller in the photos.
"That's why she always tilted her head down. She also wore flats or very short heels," one wrote.
Another suggested that the future king may have been "standing on the box" to give the people the illusion that he is taller than his wife.
Princess Diana And Prince Charles' Height In Photos Explained
In an article on The Society Pages, Lisa Wade, an Associate Professor at Tulane University, explained why Prince Charles is often taller than his wife. According to her, it's more about "social commitment" and the expectations from the public.
"This effort to make Charles appear taller is a social commitment to the idea that men are taller and women shorter," she wrote. "When our own bodies, and our chosen mates, don’t follow this rule, sometimes we’ll go to great lengths to preserve the illusion."
