10 Times Queen Elizabeth Broke Royal Protocol
Giving a Soccer Fan Her Autograph
Back in 1998, the Queen made an official visit to Malaysia. When a young soccer player (a fan of Manchester United) asked her to sign his soccer ball, she broke a major royal tradition to do it. Royals don't sign autographs, which may have started as a way to prevent forgeries way back in the day. That was one happy boy, and we hope he kept the ball in his collection -- because its value will only ever increase.
