Kate Middleton can’t sign autographs and here’s the reason why

The rules are strict: the British royal family is prohibited from signing autographs.

The code of good conduct of the British monarchy states that no member of the reigning family should sign autographs.

According to The Express, no one is authorized to sign a document without first obtaining the Queen’s consent.



This rule applies of course to the most famous figures in the family: the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince Harry.

The reason is simple and logical: in order to avoid any risk of falsification of their signature and therefore any usurpation of identity.

So put aside any hope of ever seeing Duchess Kate scribbling her signature on a picture. Fortunately, we still have the selfies.

Kate Middleton jokes about having ‘more babies’ with Prince William during royal tour

 

Currently on an official tour with Prince William and their children, Duchess Kate dropped a little hint about expanding her family in the near future.

Now parents of two children, the two royals have been the target of pregnancy rumors since their marriage in April 2011 and until today.

Some of the latest allegations even claimed that the pair is expecting twins or that Kate is pregnant with another girl.

The Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, are now on official visits to Poland and Germany. The couple is accompanied by their two children, Prince George, who turns 4 today, and Princess Charlotte, 2.



As the couple completed their visit at The Heart—an incubator for digital and tech start-ups in Warsaw, Poland, Catherine was gifted cuddly toys designed for newborns.

Upon receiving the gifts, she turned to William and made a funny remark that did not go unnoticed, saying, “We will just have to have more babies!”

With Prince Philip retiring in the fall and the numerous obligations linked to their rank, there seems to be little room left for the arrival of a third child at the moment.

Duchess Kate debuts new haircut at Wimbledon

The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, made a noticeable appearance on Monday afternoon on the first day of the Wimbledon tournament.

For the occasion the royal mom opted for a polka dot Dolce & Gabbana dress, a white leather Victoria Beckham tote bag and pearl Oscar de la Renta earrings.



But above all, Duchess Kate rocked a new, lighter hairdo. Her beautiful hair is now significantly shorter.

The royal traded her long locks for a shoulder cut, more chic and suited for the summer season.

An avid tennis lover, Kate was named patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, the organization responsible for the Wimbledon tournament, by Queen Elizabeth last summer.

Duchess Kate reveals why she was once banned from Wimbledon

In July 2013, the legendary Wimbledon tennis tournament was crowning Andy Murray, who had just defeated Novak Djokovic.

At the time, the royal was 8 months pregnant with Prince George and she was forbidden to attend by her doctor.

In a BBC documentary about tennis, the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, explains why she had to stick to the recommendations of her obstetrician.



“The doctor said definitely not,” Duchess Kate said. “I was very heavily pregnant. I wrote to [Andy Murray] afterwards saying sorry for not being there.”

A few days later, on July 22, the royal couple’s first child was born, which means the little prince will be celebrating his fourth birthday in a few weeks.
