Apparently, the Duchess of Cambridge isn’t the only royal family member who must refuse autograph requests.

What is the reason why, you ask? Watch the video below for the fascinating answer!

But since air travel has become much safer over the years, Queen Elizabeth has become more relaxed about that guideline. The more you know!
