She is running for governor of Arkansas BTW and chances are she will probably win the race if she gets the Republican because nomination.

I’ve heard that White House staffers often get SOTU programs signed every year. Those programs are treasured as private keepsakes. Coming from that custom, I can see why it would feel natural to Sanders to ask the prince to sign the program of what us likely the grandest state dinner she’s attended (and what she likely already knew would be her final state dinner).

That said, she should have been briefed that the customs are not the same in the UK.
There is a difference between asking your president or Supreme Court justice to sign something for keepsake than do it at a State event with a foreign dignitary.
