You can see every official Princess Diana and Prince Charles photo out there and still miss one strange detail in almost all of them. We admit it; we missed it too.
Take a look at their famous engagement photo. Seems like a pretty normal pose for a couple about to be married, right?
And sneak a peak at their equally famous wedding day portrait. Again, nothing appears to be amiss, right?
Or get a load of these other pictures of the couple posing for the cameras.
Notice anything “off” yet?
Give up? Okay, here goes: Princess Diana looks noticeably shorter than Prince Charles in all these pics (and many more). But in reality, the two royals were the same height–about 5 foot 8 inches.
An eagle-eyed viewer on Twitter pointed this fact out recently, and it immediately caught firestorm, with many admitting they hadn’t caught onto this until just now.
It’s no wonder why the Internet can’t get over this. So many photos where this is happening!

We’ll never know for sure if this was intentional or if it was just a habit, but one thing’s for certain–we love Princess Diana and think she is beautiful at any height!

Diana Holding Clementine
The little girl in Diana's arms is Clementine Hambro, the youngest member of the bridal party. Clem was the princess's favorite student at the kindergarten where she worked as a teaching assistant.
Dianas Bridal Party
The best men were Charles's brothers, Edward (behind Charles) and Andrew (to Diana's right). Both were single at the time.
Diana Petting Pageboy
The bridal party included two godsons of Prince Charles. Here's Diana patting the youngest, then 8-year-old Edward van Cutsem. He's now a close friend to her sons, William and Harry.
Diana In Throne Room
Here is a behind-the-scenes shot of Diana and Charles in the throne room at Buckingham Palace.
Diana From Behind On Balcony
Another shot-from-behind look at the royal couple. This time they're on the balcony gazing at the crowds in front of the palace.
The ceremony was a typical Church of England affair, with one exception: Diana didn't promise to "obey," which caused quite a stir at the time.
The couple got many, many gifts. This is just part of the loot, given by foreign dignitaries.
And here's the cake--or at least one of them. There were 27 in total!
Diana Holding Clementine Wide
Here's another view of the royal family on their way to the reception. Breakfast was served to 120 guests.
Diana's dress cost about $45,000 (in today's dollars). The tiara she wore was a Spencer family heirloom and gave her a headache, her brother later told a British newspaper.
Princess Diana Wedding
One of the many formal portraits of the newlyweds. Here you can see Diana's 25-foot train in all its glory.
After the ceremony, the couple signed their names to the royal marriage license.
