When I got my kidney transplant, I remember it being very difficult at first showing my scar. I didn’t want it to be in photos, so I wore things that would cover it up. Now, more than ever, I feel confident in who I am and what I went through…and I’m proud of that. T – Congratulations on what you’re doing for women, launching @lamariette whose message is just that…all bodies are beautiful.
Taking to her Instagram Story, Princess Eugenie reshared Selena’s stunning photo in a blue swimsuit and wrote, “I thought this was super cool of Selena Gomez to show she’s confident of who she is and what she went through after finding it difficult to show her scar.” In the photo, the ‘Ice Cream’ singer’s arched right leg reveals a scar on her upper thigh which Selena proudly flaunted.

Speaking previously about her health struggle to mark International Scoliosis Awareness Day, Eugenie said: “In 2002, when I was 12 years old, I was diagnosed with scoliosis (curvature of the spine), and told that I would need corrective surgery. This was, of course, a scary prospect for a 12-year-old; I can still vividly remember how nervous I felt in the days and weeks before the operation
She had proudly flaunted the scar during her 2018 wedding with Jack Brooksbank.
