Princess Eugenie described Selena Gomez as “super cool” for showing off her scar in a celebratory Instagram post.
The royal, who is expecting her first child with husband Jack Brooksbank, reposted a photo the 28-year-old singer initially shared on Instagram last month.
Eugenie added the caption: “I thought it was super cool of @selenagomez to show that she was sure of who she was and what she went through after struggling to show her scar. proud of our uniqueness. “
Gomez had posted a picture of herself in a blue swimsuit and told fans in an accompanying post: “When I had my kidney transplant I remember it was very difficult to show my scar at first. I didn’t want it to be in pictures, so I wore clothes that would hide it. Now, more than ever, I feel confident in who I am and what I’ve been through. .. and I’m proud of it. “
The 30-year-old royal encouraged her social media followers to kiss their scars and proudly show them to the world.
Eugenie was diagnosed with scoliosis (curvature of the spine) at the age of 12 and underwent life-changing surgery.
Speaking earlier about her struggle for health on International Scoliosis Awareness Day, Eugenie said: “In 2002, when I was 12, I was diagnosed with scoliosis (curvature of the spine. spinal cord) and was told I would need corrective surgery. , of course, a frightening prospect for a 12 year old; I still clearly remember how nervous I felt in the days and weeks leading up to the operation. “
She also shared images from her x-rays and thanked the staff at the Royal National Orthopedic Hospital, “who work tirelessly to save lives and make people better. They have made me better and I am so happy to be their sponsor of the Redevelopment Appeal.
For her wedding in Windsor in 2018, Eugenie wore a dress designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos from Peter Pilotto that featured a lower back to show off her scoliosis scar.
