Queen Elizabeth II Reveals She Needed Braces In Her Youth
People aren’t entirely excited about getting braces, with many a place to get braces in Harrisburg and across the world working hard to talk to people into getting braces for their teeth. When a famous person reveals they had braces for a time, people tend to take note, which is exactly what happened late in February 2020, when Queen Elizabeth II shared a rare moment from her youth when she came back from her winter break.
Her Majesty made a visit to the Royal National ENT and Eastman Dental hospitals, where she met and talked with patients to learn about their experiences, and was given a tour.
Reportedly, the Queen was shown a dental model which had braces fitted on it in the hospital, which led her to share a rare story. The Queen, reportedly, said that she had wires a long time ago.
Notably, Queen Elizabeth II isn’t the only royal to have had braces, as her grandkids; Princess Eugenie, Prince Harry, and Prince William, all had them when they were young, which has helped alleviate the stigma about going to any place to get braces in Harrisburg or anywhere to get braces.
Later, Queen Elizabeth met 11-year-old Ilia Astrovich, who admitted to Her Majesty that he was getting braces, where she shared some advice. The Queen spoke from experience, saying that she thinks that the trouble of dealing with braces is worth it, in the end.
The Royal Family’s official Twitter account shared some videos and images from Her Majesty’s visit to the medical facilities, expected to have at least 200,000 for 2020.
In one of these videos, the Queen was meted by kids in the paediatric wing wearing paper crowns and waving flags for her arrival. She even commented that she thought that the crowns were quite nice.
The Queen was there to officially open a new specialist building that brings together the Eastman Dental Hospital and the Royal National Throat, Nose, and Ear Hospital, being her first public appearance following her extended Christmas break in Sandringham.
The visit followed a chaotic week for the British Royal Family, which saw 2 royal divorces announced. Prince Andrew’s 60th birthday was also on that day, with jubilations toned down following the fallout from the Jeffrey Epstein issue.
