Nobody seems interested in talking with Naruhito.

Are the Spanish royals incredibly tall? Or is Prince Naruhito just really, really wee?

Prince Naruhito is teeny, really teeny. But most of the Japanese and the Royals are tiny people.

@harry

How am I bashing, when I am saying the truth?? We were just talking about his height. Ok, so should I say Prince Naruhito is tall??? Grow up. He's very short, if you don't like it, then how about this...Prince Felipe is very tall. Do you feel better?

You need to understand, not everyone is excited or thinks highly of ANY monarchy. Everyone has that choice to feel however they want. If you love the royal family, I respect that, but if other people don't, then that is also their right, as well, please respect that.

Wiki says princess Letizia is 1.7m. Google say Prince Philip as 1.97m. One website says Prince Naruhito is 1.52m . . . "without heels".

So, it looks like a combination of both.

Naruhito's height is average for a japanese person.

>Naruhito's height is average for a japanese person.

I don't think so. I'm 1.56 and most Japanese, except the little old ladies born during/immediately after the war, are taller than me.

Readers, that ends discussion on the crown prince's height which is not relevant to anything.

I wonder what they're all discussing....

The Spanish Royal family have problems of their own which make The Japanese Imperial family's issues diminutive by comparison.

Probably the joys of being both President of World Wildlife Fund Spain and an elephant hunter.

Spain currently has 26 percent unemployment and they might be asking for Japanese investments in their country. Spanish government often tries to squeeze all the revenue it can out of the already limp middle class, through taxation. In Spain they tax the food, which all people need. I hope these Spaniards get fed up enough to where they can create a change in their institutions, so the system does not so easily throw them aside.
