When it comes to achieving the perfect smile, even members of the royal family need some help. And Queen Elizabeth didn't get that signature smile without some fine-tuning.
On Wednesday, the 93-year-old monarch stepped out to officially open the new premises of the Royal National ENT and Eastman Dental Hospitals at UCLH. At the event, Her Majesty toured the new facility and even met with children who were being fitted for braces.
According to People, while speaking with 10-year-old Ilia Aristovich, Elizabeth revealed that she too had professional help to straighten her teeth. Yup, ladies and gentlemen, the Queen of England had braces like the rest of us.
“I had wires, luckily it was a very long time ago,” she said. “I think it’s worth it in the end.” By the looks of her smile, it definitely seems that way.
