Nicolas Sarkozy`s `height of style`

London: Nicolas Sarkozy has once again showed that he is too sensitive about his height, particularly when he`s with taller women -- this time, the French President reportedly tried to hide his stature while meeting a Princess.

Sarkozy bent down to politely kiss his royal visitor`s hand, but the French President`s gesture was more than just a greeting, it made sure he kept Princess Victoria of Sweden at arm`s length as they met in Paris.

By doing so, the President assured his visitor did not share the top step of the entrance to the Elysee Palace in the French capital, the `Daily Mail` reported.

Keen not to allow the Princess`s husband to show up his small frame either, the 5ft 5in President then repeated the trick when shaking hands with Prince Daniel.

The couple are on a four-day visit to France.
