Meghan Markle already broke a royal style rule by wearing black during her first appearance of 2018, and聽she caused a bit of a controversy when she showed up with a messy bun. Recently, a photograph of her from an engagement in Cardiff led people to question whether she had broken another royal rule 鈥 this one against signing autographs for the public.

When聽she and Prince Harry聽visited Wales this week, 10-year-old Caitlin Clark asked the future bride for her autograph. According to People, the former Suits star happily obliged, writing, 鈥淗i Kaitlin,鈥 along with a heart and a smiley face.

While this seems like an incredibly sweet thing to do, it actually聽had聽some people raising their eyebrows.聽Per聽reports, protocol dictates that members of the royal family are聽never supposed to give out their autographs. It鈥檚 a precaution to prevent their signatures from being forged.

Representatives for the royals told the Mirror Online, though, that Markle didn鈥檛 technically sign an autograph since she didn鈥檛 write her name.

In any case, young聽Caitlin聽is certainly pleased with her gift from Markle. She told reporters that she鈥檚 thrilled, even though her named isn鈥檛 spelled quite right. 鈥淚 don鈥檛 really care,鈥 she聽said about the minor mistake. 鈥淢y heart is still racing. I鈥檝e never gotten a royal autograph before. This is going to make everyone jealous.鈥
