With the announcement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s pregnancy, most people have likely already forgotten about the royal wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank. But Eugenie’s choice to have her scar showing on her wedding day is something we should continue to talk about.

While most people obsess over every last detail that goes into a celebrity’s bridal look, it was the scar that ran down Eugenie’s back that caught everyone’s attention this time around. The scar was made visible by her dress which featured a low back. “The low back feature on the dress was at the specific request of Princess Eugenie who had surgery aged 12 to correct scoliosis,” a statement from the royal family read.

In an interview with This Morning, Eugenie explained how important it is to her to share this important message. She said, “I had an operation when I was 12 on my back, and you’ll see on Friday [at the wedding], but it’s a lovely way to honour the people who looked after me and a way of standing up for young people who also go through this.”

And people all over, those with scars and those without, cannot seem to agree more. They’re taking to Twitter to praise the princess, as well as share their own personal stories.

It’s refreshing to see someone with so much clout use their platform to help spread an important message. Ahead of her wedding day, Eugenie aptly explained, “I think you can change the way beauty is, and you can show people your scars and I think it’s really special to stand up for that.”
