Princess Eugenie Proudly Shows Off Back Scar In Her Wedding Dress
Princess Eugenie Proudly Displays Scoliosis Scars With Low-Back Wedding Dress
Princess Eugenie couldn't have chosen a better wedding dress for her big day.
The bride opted for a v-neck gown by British designers Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos. A royal press release states that "the dress features a neckline that folds around the shoulders to a low back that drapes into a flowing full length train."
But perhaps the most distinct part about the gown is the back of it, which features a low cut. Apparently, the style "was at the specific request of Princess Eugenie." Apart from it being stunning, the princess wanted to showcase her scoliosis scar from having surgery when she was 12.
After seeing the chosen dress, royal fans took to Twitter to express their gratitude toward Eugenie for bringing awareness to scoliosis on her wedding day.
I love the fact that Eugenie chose to wear a dress that showed the scar from her scoliosis surgery- it made my heart warm 😍❤️— Brianna Quine (@briannaquine) October 12, 2019
It’s so good to see that Eugenie chose her wedding dress to reveal her scar from her scoliosis surgery! I love the mindset that it’s a badge of honour showing what she’s been through and encouraging others to do the same and not to be ashamed of surgery scars— harmony 🦕 (@hxrm0ny) October 12, 2019
In a pre-recorded interview before her wedding, the princess spoke about the importance of bringing scoliosis into the spotlight. In 2002, Eugenie was told she had curvature of the spine and would need corrective surgery. She now serves as a patron of the Redevelopment Appeal at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital.
"I had an operation when I was 12 on my back, and you'll see on Friday [at the wedding], but 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," she told ITV'sThis Morning.
In June of this year, Eugenie spoke out about her experience with scoliosis when she posted on Instagram an x-ray of her spine. There, she also directly thanked the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital for their help in making her better.
As it turns out, the low-back dress feature wasn't the only part of the gown that had meaning. The official royal website notes that her dress also included lots of symbols, particularly "a Thistle for Scotland acknowledging the couple's fondness for Balmoral, a Shamrock for Ireland as a nod to the Bride's Ferguson family, the York Rose, and ivy representing the couple's home." She topped off her wedding look with the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara (lent to her by Queen Elizabeth II).
