Look, we all have scars. And I'm not just talking about the emotional scars that have been inflicted on us by this summer's series of lightening-fast celebrity engagements. Most mere mortals have literal scars thanks to falling down in public (just me?) — and while Kate Middleton is no mere mortal, she does has a very visible scar that you might not have noticed before.
The scar is, for the most part, hidden in Kate's hairline — but you can see it here:
And, slightly, here:
So, what's the deal? As In Style notes, Kate's three-inch scar was actually first noticed by people almost a decade ago, when everyone mistook it for hair extensions. Kensington Palace ended up having to release a statement at the time, saying "The scar is related to a childhood operation."
The nature of Kate's operation remains unknown to this day, which, fair enough! Would you want your entire medical history exposed to the public? Probably not. That said, if you take a look at Kate's more recent photos, you can see she's taken to styling her hair in a way that almost-always covers her scar when she wears it up.
It goes without saying that Kate looks amazing with and without her scar showing, because she looks amazing all the time, the end.
