"I Have Lived With Two 12-Inch Metal Rods In My Back": Princess Eugenie Speaks Openly About Her Battle With Scoliosis

Princes Eugenie’s battle with scoliosis
It’s becoming more and more common for royals and other public figures to speak openly about their health issues. And that’s a good thing, to perceive them as normal, down-to-earth people, not superhumans. Princess Diana wasn’t shy to talk about her bulimia, and Prince Harry has spoken openly about being depressed after his mother’s untimely passing.
Another member of the British royal family who doesn’t try to hide her ailment is Princess Eugenie. She is a beautiful young lady who leads an active life, but it could have been impossible if she hadn't gotten timely treatment for a condition affecting her back. The princess "could have become a hunchback," in her mother's words, if she hadn’t had a surgery for scoliosis at the age of 12.
