Princess Eugenie has always been vocal about her battle with scoliosis, she shared her complete story back in 2018 in support for the London's Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital where she had been treated.

She claimed, "During my operation, which took eight hours, my surgeons inserted eight-inch titanium rods into each side of my spine and one-and-a-half inch screws at the top of my neck. After three days in intensive care, I spent a week on a ward and six days in a wheelchair, but I was walking again after that."

It's International Scoliosis Awareness Day today and the end of Scoliosis Awareness Month in America… I have been overwhelmed by the messages of support that I have received since showing my scar on my wedding day. To all of you who have just received the diagnosis, to those wearing braces, to those recovering from an operation and for those who have lived with a scar for years – My thoughts are with you on Scoliosis Awareness Day. And to the doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and researchers – Thank You #internationalscoliosisawarenessday

She opened up about her decision during an interview with The Morning and according to a report by BBC, she was quoted saying, "It's a lovely way to honor the people who looked after me and a way of standing up for young people who also go through this.

"I think you can change the way beauty is, and you can show people your scars and I think it's really special to stand up for that.”
