The Royal Family follows the policy of ‘no autographs’ to the people and everyone must follow this rule.
According to the protocols, royals are not allowed to give autographs or sign any documents other than royal ones.
Yes, it is true, the members of the royal family are completely forbidden from giving autographs. If you ever get the chance to meet a member of the British Royal Family, please don’t ask for an autograph.
Not only is it a breach of the royal protocol, but their likely response will be, “I am sorry, they don’t allow me to do that”. Unlike celebrities, Royals cannot afford to have their signature forged. As it can possibly be used against them at a later point in any of the scandalous things.

I’m not sure if you do autographs but it would make his day”? Prince Charles then shocked his bodyguards when he asked one of them to find a piece of paper for him to sign. He wrote “Charles 2010” and even apologized for the “shaky writing”. As Prince Charles “never writes standing up”.
