It's been one month since Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's wedding, but Sarah Ferguson is still reminiscing about her daughter's big day. In fact, she just shared a major highlight from the wedding—one that also made her a very proud mother-of-the-bride.


According to The Daily Mail, Ferguson was blown away by her daughter's choice in wedding dress, not just for its beauty, but for its statement-making design. The gown featured a (subtle) low back, which put the royal's scoliosis scar—the result of a corrective surgery she had as a child—on display. "My proudest moment was watching Eugenie standing tall, very proud to show her scoliosis scar in her low-backed dress," the Duchess of York told the outlet in a rare interview. "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. 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."

Eugenie's mother was more than thrilled with her daughter's final bridal look. "She was just so radiant," she said, even in the face of wedding day jitters. "She said, 'Mum, I thought I was going to get nerves,' but she didn't."


As for how Fergie reacted to the rest of Eugenie's nuptials? The mother-of-the-bride was intensely emotional throughout the ceremony, she revealed. "I always went to weddings and thought: 'Why is the mother-of-the-bride crying? But I completely understand why now. It's because it's so amazing to think your daughter is now grown up, leaving home and starting her own life," she concluded.
