Hi Dougie... Don't get me wrong, but THAT'S RUDE!!!!!!!!!!!
As per the crown height, it's pretty good for a 71%, which is slightly on the high side, but it's still considered ok. I suggest to look at 9% or + crowns... At 8.8% it's OK. Keep in mind that MANY, MANY princesses have 3 to 6% crowns... The depth is ok (Usually I suggest to look at 65% +/- 3% depths) and it's not waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too deep. A 90% height is way too deep, but 68 definitely no...
The girdle sounds nice... It's not wavy as in many pricesses. The stone is almost perfectly sqare and Ex/Vg is a plus.
Most important: how does it look to you? Is it sparkly?? This is the most important thing... Don't rely only on numbers!
Enjoy your new rock!

Easy Dougie,

This guy has a princess not a round diamond. The total depth is just fine. The only problem might be the crown height is a little shallow but the diamond might be just a bright. He also found one with an excellent polish which is very hard to find.

Yes, sorry, I didn't see the "princess" cut part. Oops!
