Sarah Ferguson still gets sentimental thinking of the day Princess Eugenie was a beautiful bride! In fact, she recently revealed to Daily Mail her favorite part of her daughter’s gorgeous royal wedding on Oct. 12.
“My proudest moment was watching Eugenie standing tall, very proud to show her scoliosis scar in her low-backed dress,” Fergie, 59, said of Eugenie’s Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos-designed wedding gown. “I’d gone to all the fittings and sat there beaming with delight, and because there was no veil it was a very strong statement.”
Eugenie’s open-back gown showed off the scar on her back from a surgery she had at the age of 12 for scoliosis. Instead of being embarrassed by the scar that lines her entire spine, Eugenie embraced it. The surgery changed her life completely, and for that, she honors it.
Eugenie, 28, also requested to go without a veil, but had to make sure doing so was allowed at St. George’s Chapel where the ceremony was being held. “We rang St. George’s Chapel to make sure there wasn’t a special rule specifying veils must be worn, but there wasn’t and Eugenie just wanted to be herself,” Fergie expressed. “The tiara, borrowed from granny, danced to her. She was just so radiant. She said, ‘Mum, I thought I was going to get nerves,’ but she didn’t.”
The brunette beauty married Jack Brooksbank in a jaw-dropping fall wedding at Windsor Castle last month, and Fergie still gets teary-eyed just thinking about the immaculate celebration. “I always went to weddings and thought, ‘Why is the mother-of-the-bride crying?’ But I completely understand why now,” Fergie admitted. “It’s because it’s so amazing to think your daughter is now grown up, leaving home and starting her own life.”
Even though the wedding was held exactly one month ago, Fergie expressed that she is beyond elated for her daughter and new son-in-law. “She and Jack are just meant to be,” Fergie proudly stated. “He adores her, and now I’ve got a son. He will be the best consort there is, as Prince Albert was to Queen Victoria. I know it will be that sort of love match.”
