Sarah Ferguson's second daughter mentioned the International Scoliosis Awareness Day on social media
Princess Eugenia, second daughter of Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrea, once again spoke of a problem that accompanied her for the first years of her life: scoliosis. On the occasion of the International Scoliosis Awareness Day which fell on Saturday 27 June, Jack Brooksbank's wife showed on Instagram – having no official duties within The Firm he can have a personal social account – the scar of the operation to the back to which he is was submitted when she was 12 years old.
In the post caption, which received numerous comments and likes, the Princess, who works as associate director of the London art gallery Hauser & Wirth, encouraged people who have lived an experience similar to hers to share images of their own. fearless scars. To make this appeal more incisive, she invited the followers to tag it in the images of the Stories and said she was ready to share them.
As mentioned above, it is certainly not the first time that Sarah Ferguson's daughter talks about this parenthesis of her personal story. The story of his scoliosis peaked on the wedding day when, wearing a suit signed by Peter Pilotto and with his father beside him as tradition requires, he walked the steps of St. George's Cathedral showing the world the upper back crossed by scar, imperishable reminder of the delicate operation of many years before.
At the time – the marriage between Eugenia and Jack was celebrated on October 12, 2018 after eight years of relationship – a statement from the official spokesman for the Royal Family revealed that the neckline on the back of the dress had been a precise request from the Princess. Interviewed by ITV cameras just before the big day, Eugenia herself spoke of the decision to show the scar of the surgery on her back as a way to thank the surgeons who performed it, professionals from the Royal National Orthopedic Hospital in London.
Just under two years after her wedding, Beatrice of York's younger sister found another wonderful opportunity to underline the importance of bringing her scars with serenity and pride (in 2018 she said she wanted to send a message to young people who they were experiencing a difficult time like the one she went through in childhood). The post, we repeat, hit the mark, restoring the image of a strong Princess to the world, a woman who is not afraid to tell even the most difficult traits of her journey.
