Taking to her Instagram page on Tuesday, the royal - who is a patron of the RNOH - posted a picture of the hospital's staff, who were seen holding up the words, "We need you support," inside a ward. "I'm so proud of my hospital, The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, as they have become a trauma centre for the first time since 1982 due to the incredibly challenging time we face and the unprecedented pressure all hospitals and their staff face," wrote Eugenie.

The post comes moments after her mother Sarah Ferguson posted a thought-provoking message on Instagram. The Duchess of York uploaded a snapshot of a cherry blossom tree in full bloom, as she contemplated nature's role in the ongoing crisis. She wrote: "Mother Nature has sent us to our rooms… Like the spoilt children we are. She gave us time and she gave us warnings. She was so patient with us. She gave us fire and floods, she tried to warn us but in the end she took back control. She has sent us to our rooms and when she is finished clearing up our mess. She will let us out to play again. How will we use this time? Xxxx."

At the time, she wrote on Instagram: "Today is International Scoliosis Awareness Day and I'm very proud to share my X Rays for the very first time. 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."
