Princess Eugenie married Jack Brooksbank while wearing a wedding dress designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos.
The full-pleated gown featured a low back, which showed Princess Eugenie’s scar that she received from a scoliosis correctional surgery.
The princess told ITV’s This Morning that she intentionally chose a dress with a low back to “change the way beauty is” and “honour the people” who cared for her after her surgery.
A number of Twitter users thanked the princess for showing her scar.
Princess Eugenie’s royal wedding to Jack Brooksbank would not have been complete without her head-turning wedding dress, designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos.
However, you may not have noticed that the gown revealed a post-surgery scar that Princess Eugenie received when she was a child.
In 2002, Princess Eugenie was treated for scoliosis, a condition that causes curvature of the spine
The princess first spoke about her back surgery in June with the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital.
After being diagnosed with the condition at age 12, Princess Eugenie said that she underwent an eight-hour long surgery, during which “surgeons inserted eight-inch titanium rods” into each side of her spine and “one-and-a-half inch screws” at the top of her neck.
Today is International Scoliosis Awareness Day and I’m very proud to share my X Rays for the very first time. I also want to honour the incredible staff at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital who work tirelessly to save lives and make people better. They made me better and I am delighted to be their patron of the Redevelopment Appeal.
