It seems that Meghan Markle was always born to be a princess, but how does she measure up against her new royal family when it comes to height? The actress has often been seen in heels — even when going about her new official duties with husband Prince Harry — and with her sister-in-law Kate Middleton also rocking stilettos, it can be hard to tell how tall the duchesses actually are. Standing beside their husbands, they both look on the shorter side, but stand them next to or behind Queen Elizabeth, and suddenly they seem to stand extra inches taller. Throw in Prince Philip with his top hats and it can be even harder to get a good idea of everyone's height.

We decided to take a closer look at the royal family, minus all of the hats and heels, and see just how they really measure up. Which of the princes is the tallest — and which of them is the shortest? Who's actually taller, Kate or Meghan? Check out the gallery below to discover the royal family's real heights, and how they compare to their kin.
