As Patron of the RNOH Charity, The Princess has been involved in several campaigns throughout the years, with the visit coinciding with the launch of The RNOH Charity latest campaign – to make the “Impossible, Possible” for people who face difficult orthopaedic conditions.

“I am delighted to be here today to once again see the life-changing work taking place at the Hospital - this is a charity which is very close to my heart. After everything I went through as a child with scoliosis, I know from my own experience how debilitating an orthopaedic condition can be.” – Princess Eugenie.

The Princess was introduced to the Prosthetic Rehabilitation Unit for the first time, meeting patients and gaining and insight into how prosthetic limbs are made. The team showed the Princess new technologies and explained the process of creating a new limb, through to the patient’s rehabilitation which all takes place at RNOH.
Throughout the visit, the Princess also spoke to patients and their families, witnessing a special moment when Steeper patient, Ida Corcoran, was fitted with her first ever electrical arm. With some getting used to, Ida tested the arm out with a game of Connect 4 with the Princess.

“It has been inspirational to meet those here today who have benefitted from the expertise of the hospital’s staff and services and hear first-hand how truly life-changing this has been for them, as it was for me when I was a child. The RNOH Charity is integral to what the hospital achieves in delivering such stellar care for so many people.” – Princess Eugenie
