The Prince Of Wales Recalled A Childhood Accident Which Left Him With A “Harry Potter” Scar

The Prince Of Wales Recalled A Childhood Accident Which Left Him With A 

During a royal engagement in Wales on Tuesday, Prince William reminisced about a childhood mishap that resulted in what he jokingly referred to as a “Harry Potter” scar.

The 41-year-old prince was at Cardiff Metropolitan University to explore businesses and organizations utilizing seaweed. It was during this visit that he recounted a golfing accident from his childhood that left him with a head injury when he was eight years old.

Engaging in conversation with Pierre Paslier, co-founder and co-chief executive officer of Notpla, a company supplying seaweed packaging to major sporting and music venues across the country, Prince William discussed various topics.

He even examined a seaweed-produced golf tee designed to biodegrade and fertilize greens, prompting a query about his own golfing habits. Mr Paslier replied: “No – the last time I played golf…” and pointed to his head.

The young prince was rushed to hospital from Ludgrove Preparatory school in Wokingham, southwest of London in June 1991 after he was struck by a golf club while playing with friends.

William spoke about his injury 18 years later, during a chat with a ten-year-old cancer patient for BBC’s Newsround.

“I got hit by a golf club when I was playing golf with a friend of mine,” the royal 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.”

He went on to explain that his scar sometimes ‘glows’ like Harry Potter’s famous lightning bolt scar on his forehead.

“It glows sometimes and some people notice it – other times they don’t notice it at all,” he quipped.
