Kate Middleton made her first official solo appearance this week in London, attending a charity dinner for In Kind Direct at the Clarence House.The Dutchess looked stunning in a floor length blue chiffon gown, with her styled immaculately.
But underneath her hair, a 3 inch scar could be seen on the left side of her head, behind her temple. "The scar is related to a childhood operation," said a spokesman for the Duchess.
As a child, the Duchess had "a very serious operation," officials told the Daily Mail, but declined to explain the surgery or reason for needing it.
A professional surgeon in London said "I really doubt it was any serious condition and I would say it is as a result of an arteriovenous malformation - a birthmark - being removed".
Coincidentally, the Prince himself also has a scar on his forehead, as a result of a golfing incident.
