Our First Couple Is Taller Than Your First Couple

Barack and Michelle Obama visit Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip yesterday at Buckingham Palace.

The President and First Lady are 6’2″ and 5’11”, respectively. The Queen is 5’4″.

Online sources claim Philip is 5’11” or even 6’2″ tall. At their marriage, at least, he was nearly a head taller than Elizabeth. But at age 87, he looks to have shrunk considerably.
