On Thursday as an Instagram story the Princess posted: “Earlier this year I shared this pic of my scar.

“I was sent a lot of photos in response and I wanted to share some with you today as my #throwbackthursday."

She later added: "Please share your stories with me where you have scars that show your strength. Scars are beautiful."

Eugenie was diagnosed with scoliosis, an unwanted spinal curvature to the side, aged just 12.

She underwent an eight-hour operation which saw eight-inch titanium rods inserted into either side of her spine.

The operation left a scar on Eugenie’s back beginning at the top of her neck and extending downwards.

However rather than trying to hide the scar Eugenie has chosen to display it proudly.

Alongside the original post in June she commented: “Today is International Scoliosis Awareness Day.
