Not really. The procedure was for one of the Clerks to read the title

commissioners who attended on his or her behalf) neither signed
anything nor said anything - assent is indicated by silence.
The Regency was established on 5 February 1811, after which the King
had no power to do anything.
Which raises an interesting question. How was Royal Assent signified
to the Regency Act, since that Act itself recited that the King was
incapable? The answer is that the Lord Chancellor was authorized by
resolution of both Houses to issue a Commission for giving assent
without any reference at all to the King or to anyone acting on his
behalf. This procedure, which could still be used, is immune from
challenge because the giving of Assent is a "proceeding in
Parliament", which, by virtue of the Bill of Rights, may not "be
impeached or questioned in any court or place out of parliament".
The answer is in your own post! Assent is indicated by silence.
