...if necessary?

We all know that Prince Charles he has sticky out ears.

Why weren’t they fixed in childhood? He had braces for his teeth - why not his ears?

And if George; Charlotte; Louis; Archie et al had sticky out ears, would the modern RF correct them?

My ears stuck out when I was a child. I have never had any treatment but they are quite normal now.

If think lots of children especially boys seem to have sticky out ears, but they seem to grow into them

What a twatty post

Not everyone is obsessed with being gorgeous

Good God why on earth should small children be judged by their ears
How shallow

AlorMy :-)! Charles never had 'bat ears' and - he has grown into his ears (that's one way of looking at it). He and I are similar age, lots of boys when I was a kid had very short hair and a school cap wedged onto their heads which accentuated their ears. They also had skinny legs but that's another story.

Rumours of Prince Charles's ears are greatly exaggerated.

All I can think of now is the scene in Gavin and Stacey where Pam and Mick wear the Charles and Camilla ears Grin

Villagegreenpreservation, it's not too late for you to have a pinnaplasty.

Ooh, I had a work crush on someone with sticky-out ears. As part of the overall package, I liked their ears very much.

SpaghettiSharon · 25/11/2019 22:45

@RuffleCrow, OP sounds like a fascist???

You’re kidding right? Shock

People who poke fun should look closer to home, their insecurities shine forth

Think the Queen needs to be focusing her attention on her other son, rather than Prince Charles’ ears!

ThinkIamflyingundertheradar · 25/11/2019 22:48

I have one sticky out ear. I like it. It gives my hair extra volume on that side and means I can see my sparkly earring when I look in the mirror.

You looking forward to the Christmas day special? Grin

SlightlyBonkersQFA · 25/11/2019 22:51

Prince Charles' ears weren't that bad, it was his hair that was ridiculous!

Newbie1999 · 25/11/2019 22:51

I have big stick out ears, and my baby daughter has too. I was never bullied but hated them growing up - I’d consider getting hers pinned back when she’s a little older.

TheProdigalKittensReturn · 25/11/2019 22:52

Hmm, the son with the funny ears or the one who had sex with a teenager provided to him by his good mate the pedophile who kept a stable of underage sex slaves - which to have regrets about if you're the Queen?

MillicentMartha · 25/11/2019 22:52

I have one sticky out ear. It always poked out of my bob. It also means I spin around on windy days...

Genevieva · 25/11/2019 22:53

Ear pinning is major surgery for cosmetic reasons. I remember a news story in the 90s about a boy dying during it. Prince Charles didn't need to be good looking to be the most eligible bachelor of the 1970s. Also, he doesn't have an underdeveloped antihelical fold. His protruding ears are caused by his face being narrower than his scull. Crooked teeth and narrow faces with shadows under eyes and sticky out ears often go together and are called adenoid face because they are associated with the growth patterns in children who can't breathe through their noses because of enlarged adenoids, so their faces grow down instead of forwards.

The whole royal family have problems with their dentition. Princess Beatrice is probably the most extreme case. I think she has had some sort of functional appliance that has left her with teeth like a horse and lips that struggle to meet. Her teeth cannot occlude well. I wouldn't be surprised if she has jaw joint pain. Imagine her with a slightly wider straighter jaw and you suddenly realise she would look very much like her younger sister.

Royallyscrewed · 25/11/2019 22:54

If either of my kids had inherited my original ears I’d have had them done- best thing my parents ever did for me.
Although I understand people’s hesitation around non essential surgery on children, going through school being compared with the fa cup is miserable.

BennyTheBall · 25/11/2019 22:55

I think he had sticky out ears in Spitting Image. In rl, not so much.

Elmo311 · 25/11/2019 23:00

I wish my mum pinned my ears back! I hate that they stick out. Sometimes I look in the mirror and I pin them back with my fingers and I look much prettier!
Oh well, my hair will do for now!

WonkyDonk87 · 25/11/2019 23:04

Another one here who had her's done as a child and am v. grateful.
DD not only hasn't inherited my sticky-out ears but has somehow managed to get unattached earlobes! Ah well... can't have everything I suppose Grin

Cannot wait Grin
