Queen Elizabeth doesn’t write cheques out because people would never cash them. Why?

Everybody would die or kill to just have a good glimpse of Queen Elizabeth. And, here we are talking about cheques which would have her signatures on it. People will prefer to keep them as mementoes instead.

It’s also a likely way to get around the fact that no one in the royal family is allowed to give away their autographs. It might be a pretty nice conversation starter or something to be bragged about by a commoner.
