Eugenie said it took her a long time to come to terms with being different and it “was a bombshell that left me reeling”.
She said after the surgery she was unable to move and was forced to wear a neck brace as she healed.
The princess told The Daily Telegraph: “That was very frustrating and I remember being angry about not being able to run around and play.”
But Eugenie, 28, said over the years she came to terms with the trauma.

And she even chose a gown designed to show off the evidence of her operation at her wedding in October.
She added: “I believe scars are like memories that tell a story on your body, that remind you how strong you had to be, and that you survived to talk about it.”
Eugenie said she was now proud that she could be an example to people going through the same thing.
