The members of the are among some of the most photographed people in the world, so it can often feel like we know every little detail about their appearance. This is especially true when it comes to Prince William, who has been in the public spotlight ever since he was born.
Though it's easy to notice his dapper sense of style, there is one aspect of his appearance that you may not have noticed: a scar on the left side of his forehead.

William previously talked to CBBC's Newsround about the scar, revealing that it was part of a golfing accident.
"I got hit by a golf club when I was playing golf with a friend of mine," Harry said. "We were on a putting green and the next thing you know there was a seven-iron and it came out of nowhere and it hit me in the head."
The prince said he calls it his "Harry Potter scar," since sometimes it can appear more noticeable than others.
"I call it that because it glows sometimes and some people notice it — other times they don't notice it at all," he said.

The scar doesn't just have a connection to everyone's favorite boy wizard; it also has a strange connection to Kate Middleton. The Duchess of Cambridge also has a facial scar on the left side of her head, though hers is slightly more discreet as it's underneath her hairline.

When the scar was first spotted by the public in October 2011, several people thought it was a piece of a hair extension.
