Katharina and Elisabeth speak
The two said they applied for the record to bring smiles to the faces and hope to the heart of as many people as possible.
"Our family was surprised at first. But it encouraged us in our decision to attempt the world record. Our family supports the idea of giving others courage through the title."
The twin sisters also believe that by having this record, they will be able to stimulate more open discussions about their height.
In their words:
"We’d be happy if the world understood and had the courage to ask us everything about our short stature. This gives us the chance to reduce our greatest disability - the prejudices in the minds of others."
Couple with height difference
In another separate article by Legit.ng, a couple proved that true love always wins after the Guinness World Records book officially recognised their union.
James and Chloe Lusted, who got married in 2016, were recognised in June 2021 after breaking the record for the greatest height differential of a married couple.
The record they broke is specifically for marriages between different sexes in which the woman is taller.
Chloe is 5 ft 5.4 inches while James stands at 3ft 7inches; their height difference is almost 2 ft.
According to 33-year-old James, who is an actor and presenter, he never thought he would get married while growing up.
