Blue blood or not, even the queen of England needed a bit of help correcting her teeth.

During a recent visit to the Royal National ENT and Eastman Dental Hospitals in London, the 93-year-old revealed that she needed braces to straighten her teeth when she was a teenager, HELLO! Magazine reports.

"I had wires. Luckily, it was a very long time ago," the queen told a youngster who was about to be fitted with braces. She added she thought the cosmetic process was well worth it.

The queen isn’t the only royal who’s worn braces. Many of her grandchildren, including Prince Harry, had their teeth straightened. In 1999, the Duke of Sussex flashed a smile revealing his braces while on an annual Christmas Day outing, People reports.

Prince Andrew’s children, Princess Beatrice and her sister Princess Eugenie, also wore braces when they were teenagers.

Currently, Prince Edward’s 16-year-old daughter Lady Louise Windsor also has braces.
