Ever since she launched her public Instagram account back in early March, the Queen's granddaughter Princess Eugenie has been using social media to highlight the organizations and causes that she feels passionately about.

Today, in honor of Scoliosis Awareness Day, the young royal shared her own x-rays for the first time, revealing the hardware she has in her neck and spine. Within in the Instagram post, she also included a number of photos of her work at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, visiting with patients and spending time with doctors.

"Today is International Scoliosis Awareness Day and I’m very proud to share my X Rays for the very first time," she wrote. "I also want to honour the incredible staff at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital who work tirelessly to save lives and make people better. They made me better and I am delighted to be their patron of the Redevelopment Appeal."

Additionally, Eugenie included a link to the hospital's website, which features a video (below) of her speaking about her scoliosis treatment.

While Eugenie is not technically a working royal, she is still patron of a number of organizations, and makes time to support the charities between her career in the art world and planning for her upcoming wedding.

She and her fiancé Jack Brooksbank will tie the knot this October at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, where her cousin Harry married Meghan Markle earlier this year.
