The Twitter account – @Canellelabelle – wrote: “Catherine has a 3-inch scar hidden in her hair next to her temple on the left.
“‘Per KP, “The scar is related to a childhood operation’.”
The account added: “Intriguing fact, William also has a similar scar on his left temple, resulting from a childhood operation as well.”
The account posted pictures of both William and Kate that seemingly show their scars.
Prince William’s scar is a result of a sports injury in 1991, which left the then-eight-year-old in hospital needing an operation.
During a game of golf at his school in Wokingham, William was hit on the head by a golf club while playing with his school friends.
The accident resulted in a fractured skull, with William having to undergo a 70-minute operation at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London.
The Prince also had to stay overnight – with Princess Diana staying with her elder son.

William spoke out about his scar 18 years later, during a chat with a 10-year-old cancer patient for BBC’s Newsround.
William said: “I got hit by a golf club when I was playing golf with a friend of mine.
“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.”
Similarly to William, Princess Kate’s scar is a result of a childhood operation.
A spokesperson for Kensington Palace told E! News in 2011 that the scar “is related to a childhood operation.”
