The 28-year-old Princess Eugenie is raising awareness for a cause close to her heart: Scoliosis. She was diagnosed with the condition when she was a pre-teen.


She shared a photo online of the x-rays taken 16 years ago and explained in the caption on Instagram that it was the International Scoliosis Awareness Day.

She also wanted to honor the medical team at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital because they 'work tirelessly to save lives and make people better.'

'I’m very proud to share my X Rays for the very first time. [The medical staff] made me better and I am delighted to be their patron of the Redevelopment Appeal'

As reported by People, Eugenie underwent an 8-hour operation when she was 12 years old, during which specialists inserted rods and 1.5-inch screws into her spine.


Apart from being living proof that the operation works, she has committed herself to fundraise for the medical facility, specifically for additional buildings and life-saving equipment.

A new facility is in the works, known as the Princess Eugenie House. According to Honey Nine, it will offer residential space for family members of patients at the hospital.

It will ensure that parents remain nearby while their children are being treated Despite her busy schedule planning a wedding, she is still making time for her humanitarian efforts.

Princess Eugenie will exchange vows with her fiance, Jack Brooksbank, at St. George's Chapel later this year.
