THE royal family can seem larger than life due to their huge presence during engagements - but how do they all measure up in height?
A sweet photo of the Queen and her three heirs was released to mark the start of a new decade, and showed how six-year-old Prince George is shooting up in size.
Meanwhile, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are constantly compared to each other over everything from their fashion sense to the way they behave while on royal duties.
But there's one area where the Duchess of Cambridge definitely comes out on top: her height.
Here’s how tall the royal family is, and what is could say about their personality?
Kate Middleton - 5ft 9in
The Duchess of Cambridge, 37, is three inches taller than Meghan and five inches taller than the average British woman.
The mum-of-three has taken royal life in her stride and many experts have commented on how she is becoming an impeccable Queen-in-waiting.
And perhaps her height has given her the confidence for this, as Oxford clinical psychologist Daniel Freeman told National Geographic: “Height seems to affect our sense of social status.
"The implication is that greater height can make you more confident in social situations.”
Meghan Markle - 5ft 6in
The Duchess of Sussex, 38, always looks glamorous and is a force of nature for the royal family.
The mum-of-one is actually the smallest of the “Fab Four”, consisting of Prince William, Prince Harry and Kate..
She measures 5ft 6in, according to one of her old CVs from her acting days.
This may be a lot shorter than her husband, Prince Harry, who measures 6ft 1, but could mean Meghan is very satisfied in their relationship.
A study found that women were most satisfied when their partner is 8cm taller than them and the Sussexes are nearly there with a 7cm gap.
The Queen - 5ft 3in
Her Majesty, 93, is infamously small, and is thought to be around 5ft 3.
She may not be tall in stature, but she certainly has a big presence, and always wears bright colours so people can see her in crowds.
Michigan State University psychology professor Linda A. Jackson said that typically women who are shorter may need to put in extra effort to be recognised.
She wrote: "The 4'8" manager may need to work harder to be taken seriously."
One thing for sure is the Queen has certainly held her own over the years - despite her small stature!
Prince George - approx 4ft
The little Prince George, six, was pictured next to his dad, grandad and great-grandma in the adorable family shot at the start of this year.
The young tot, who is in Year Two at school, seems to be around 4ft and is only just over a foot smaller than the Queen.
It doesn’t seem long before he will catch her up, and if his dad Prince William’s height is anything to go by, will be one of the taller royals.
It is claimed that men will never be shorter than their mothers, due to the fact women tend to stop growing at 15, and men continue for another three years, according to BBC's Science Focus.
With Kate measuring 5ft 9, we can predict he won't be on the shorter end of the scale, although height can be affected by environmental factors too.
Prince William - 6ft 3in
At 6ft 3, the Duke of Cambride, 37, is one of the tallest members of the royal family.
This may have put him in good stead for being a future heir to the throne.
Linda explained: “Taller men are perceived as having higher status, stronger leadership skills, and as being more occupationally successful than average or shorter males.”
Prince Harry - 6ft 1in
The Duke of Sussex, 35, is just two inches shorter than his brother, but still on the taller end of the scale.
And perhaps his height has helped with his ease with the public and charming personality.
Psychologist Timothy A Judge of the University of Florida told the American Psychological Association that tall people may have a greater self-esteem and social confidence than shorter people.
He said: "The process of literally ‘looking down on others' may cause one to be more confident.
"Similarly, having others ‘looking up to us' may instil in tall people more self-confidence."
Prince Charles - 5ft 10in
Prince Charles is reportedly 5ft 10, while Camilla is thought to be 5ft 8in.
He was the same height as first wife Princess Diana, although according to an article on The Society Pages, efforts taken to make sure Charles looked as though he towered over Diana were apparently in order to conform to the idea that men should be taller than their wives.
Professor Lisa Wade at the Occidental College in LA wrote: "This effort to make Charles appear taller is a social commitment to the idea that men are taller and women shorter.
"When our own bodies, and our chosen mates, don’t follow this rule, sometimes we’ll go to great lengths to preserve the illusion.
"When Charles and Diana were posed together formally, however, they were typically arranged so as to suggest that he was significantly taller than her, or at least to disguise the fact that he was not."
Prince Philip - 6ft
The Queen may be one of the shorter members of the royal family, but Prince Philip, 98, towers over his wife of more than 70 years at 6ft tall.
Perhaps his height was one of the things that attracted Prince Philip to the Queen, who is said to have been taken with the strapping Royal Navy cadet when they met.
And it could even be why the Queen is so robust in her advancing years.
Researchers have found that women married to taller men report being in better health, have lower BMIs, more education, and higher incomes compared to women married to shorter men.
