Kate Middleton is pretty much always under public scrutiny and many fans have noticed that the 36-year-old Duchess of Cambridge has a three-inch scar on the left part of her forehead. 

This scar has often been mistaken for hair extensions and was first spotted a couple of years ago. At the time, Buckimgham Palace released a statement which read, "The scar is related to a childhood operation". However, they did not comment on the kind of operation it was since it was a private matter.

As reported by the DailyMail, royal sources shared that it had been a "very serious operation". A consultant surgeon at the Lister hospital in London John Scurr explained that the scar was unlikely to have come from a tumor. "I really doubt it was any serious medical condition and I would say it is as a result of an arteriovenous malformation – a birthmark – being removed.  It is remarkable, given the measurement, that no-one has noticed before". 



The details of the operation are not known. Kate Middleton has been seen styling her hair in such a way that the scar always remains cleverly hidden. Kate's husband Prince William also has a scar on his head which he refers to as his "Harry Potter" scar. It is reported that he got his scar as a result of being hit with a golf club when he was around 13-years-old.
