Princess Eugenie secretly battling scoliosis after a tough diagnosis

Princess Eugenie has been secretly battling scoliosis after a tough diagnosis.

The Royal, who is set to tie the knot later this year, was forced to have corrective surgery following the worrying health news.

Rods and screws were inserted into her neck and back in order to prevent twists and curves of the spine which can affect her walk and posture.

Speaking about the gruelling operation to Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, she previously said: “In 2002, when I was 12 years old, I was diagnosed with scoliosis, and told that I would need corrective surgery.

“During my operation, which took eight hours, my surgeons inserted eight-inch titanium rods into each side of my spine and one-and-a-half inch screws at the top of my neck.”
