Being born into royalty is a privilege. The members of these families live lavishly and enjoy all the luxuries there are, from being filthy rich, to having servants and enjoying huge popularity.

The British royals are one of the most famous families in the entire world. Their lives have been the subject of countless of magazine articles, especially in recent years when the wide pubic is closely following how the situation regarding William and Harry’s relationship will unfold.

Speaking of William, it’s safe to say that he would undoubtedly be a great King of the nation one day. His commitment to his people and the tradition are immense.

With the passing of his beloved grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and his father acceding to the throne, William was given a new title and he and his beloved wife are now known as the Prince and Princess of Wales.

The royals always tend to maintain the veneer of perfection, but the media tends to track down any imperfection and reveal any secret the members of the Firm try to sweep under the carpet.

Of course, at times, accidents that are too big to be kept under wrap happen, such as the one Prince William was involved in back in the day.

When he was still very young, William suffered an injury involving a golf club which resulted in a fractured skull.

The incident took place at William’s Wokingham school in 1991, and saw the future king hit in the head by a golf club while playing with friends, as per Hello Magazine.

He was operated on at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, where he stayed over night after a surgery which lasted around 70 minutes. He was accompanied by his mother, late princess Diana, and his brother Harry was his first visitor the following day.

Charles wasn’t with William during the operation as he was attending opera but was in close touch with the doctors, the magazine reports.

Luckily, Prince William recovered quickly but he still remembers the incident.

“I got hit by a golf club when I was playing golf with a friend of mine,” he was reported to have 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.”

Speaking of the scar from the injury and the operation that followed, William said, “It glows sometimes and some people notice it – other times they don’t notice it at all.”
