Princess Eugenie, 28, had a privileged upbringing, being a member of the Royal Family with the title of princess.
However, it didn’t stop her from suffering from one uncomfortable illness, scoliosis.
Taking to her Instagram account the bride-to-be uploaded a picture of her X-ray, hoping to raise awareness for the spinal disease.
Eugenie suffered from scoliosis before having it corrected by the insertion of metal rods.
The images show Eugenie’s curved spine and how it was set straight, which she shared with a heart-warming message.
