SHOCKING NEWS: Princess Eugenie showcase the scar that runs down her spine in her dress

Princess Eugenie married Jack Brooksbank at St George’s Chapel on October 12, 2018. The princess chose to wear a dress designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos with a low-cut back to showcase the scar that runs down her spine following childhood surgery to correct scoliosis.


Eugenie underwent surgery on her spine at the age of 12 so titanium could be added to repair the curvature that scoliosis had caused.



The princess has spoken out about her journey and gave details in an article for the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. She said: “Without the care I received at the RNOH I wouldn’t look the way I do now; my back would be hunched over. And I wouldn’t be able to talk about scoliosis the way I now do, and help other children who come to me with the same problem.



“My back problems were a huge part of my life, as they would be for any 12-year-old. Children can look at me now and know that the operation works. I’m living proof of the ways in which the hospital can change people’s lives.” In 2021, it was announced that she had become the royal patron of Scoliosis Association UK.
