Kate Middletons mysterious 3-inch scar on her head thats often concealed

Though not many have noticed it, Kate Middleton has a mysterious scar on her head about three inches wide — and nobody knows exactly why.

The subtle marking can be seen on the right side of her head behind her hairline in some photographs, although it is often concealed by her hair, makeup or headwear.

It was first noticed by eagle-eyed royal fans back in in 2011, but at the time some mistook the line on her temple for hair extensions.

Royal experts have offered some theories on why the Duchess of Cambridge has the light scar, with the Palace's short explanation being in keeping with the well-mannered public perception of the 40-year-old.

A source told E! News in 2011: "The scar is related to a childhood operation"

It is less clear exactly what kind of operation Kate had to give her the mark and the palace declined to comment any further on the matter, saying simply that it was "private".

John Scurr, a consultant surgeon at the Lister Hospital in London, reassured The Sun that it was not likely to have been the result of anything serious.

He said: “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.”

Kate is not the only royal proudly wearing her scars — husband Prince William also has a 'Harry Potter' type mark on his forehead, which he which he got when he a child.

Last year Princess Eugenie received praise after unzipping her dress to reveal a scoliosis scar to a teenager.

The royal gave the teen "goosebumps" after proudly showing off her scar when they met.

The princess was diagnosed with scoliosis when she was just 12, and required corrective surgery.
