“Princess Eugenie of York was a truly beautiful bride yesterday. She has been through so much, and has come out a total winner!” Trump tweeted about the royal newlywed, although her wedding occurred on Friday, not Saturday.
Trump was most likely referring to Eugenie’s battle with scoliosis when she was a child. The daughter of Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and Sarah Ferguson underwent surgery when she was 12 years old to treat the condition. The operation left a scar down her back, which she showed off with her low back wedding dress and no veil.
Eugenie requested a dress that displayed the scar to draw awareness to the condition.
Princess Eugenie of York shows off her scar in her wedding dress on Friday, Oct. 12, 2018.
Eugenie tied the knot to her longtime boyfriend on Friday in front of hundreds of guests at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. The ceremony was followed by the traditional carriage ride through the streets of Windsor and a lunch celebration at St. George’s Hall Grand Reception Room hosted by Queen Elizabeth for the couple’s 800 guests.
