The charge radii of $$^{207,208}$$Hg have been studied for the first time and those of $$^{202,203,206}$$Hg remeasured by laser spectroscopy at ISOLDE (CERN). The characteristic kink in the charge radii at the $$N$$ = 126 shell closure has been revealed, providing the first information on its behavior below the $$Z$$ = 82 shell closure. By a theoretical analysis, it is demonstrated, contrary to previous interpretations, that both the kink at $$N$$ = 126 and the odd-even staggering can be described predominantly at the mean-field level and that pairing does not need to play a crucial role in their origin.
