The reason why you’ll never see Duchess Kate wear her hair up

The reason why you’ll never see Duchess Kate wear her hair up

She’s known for her signature long luscious locks, but there’s actually a reason why the Duchess of Cambridge rarely wears her hair up. And it’s not for style reasons either.

Kate wears her hair out to hide a large scar that runs down the side of her hair. The scar sits behind her hairline and stretches from just above her ear toward her forehead.

Here’s a photo from 2011 with her hair half pulled back that reveals her scar.

When it was first noticed in 2011, Kensington Palace told E! News that the scar was not a hair extension track as had been speculated at the time, but it was the result of a childhood injury.

“The scar is related to a childhood operation,” the Palace said in a statement, but no further information was provided.
