One of these photos is not like the other. Do you spot what's missing?

Clearly all the dresses and bouquets are different. And don't get distracted by the fact that Meghan's head is turned and the others aren't. I just couldn't find a picture of her looking straight ahead that also show the full dress.

What's missing is Princess Eugenie's veil. You don't often see a bride steer clear of that tradition so why did Eugenie decide to skip it? For a very cool reason.

When she was young she dealt with something a lot of young girls entering puberty have to confront: scoliosis. It's a big deal, not just medically but emotionally. Remember Judy Blume wrote a whole book about it, Deenie.

Eugenie said in an interview that she didn't want to hide the scar on her back from they surgery to correct her scoliosis.

"I had an operation when I was 12 on my back, and you'll see on Friday, but it's a lovely way to honour the people who looked after me and a way of standing up for young people who also go through this. I think you can change the way beauty is, and you can show people your scars and I think it's really special to stand up for that."

Is that the sweetest thing?!! A terrific reminder that we all carry visible scars and what's wrong with that. Absolutely nothing. They are the medallions of living a life that isn't perfect, because perfection does not exist.

That's a big tradition to leave behind and I can't thing of a better reason to do it. She's got spirit, right!
