I've applied to do an undergraduate degree at Royal Holloway but I haven't got a response from them yet. They sent me an email asking if I had taken other AS exams, which I hadn't and then sent another email asking why I had taken an extra year for sixth form (why I was repeating). But my friend, who is in the same situation as me was not sent any emails and was given an offer straight away. Does anyone know why this may be?

Is your friend applying for the same subject? If so then you need to ask Royal Holloway why they’re treating your application differently. If it’s different courses then they’ll often have different requirements/considerations

Yes, we applied for the same subject. Would they be allowed to say why they did this if I asked? Or would it be best to wait to hear their final decision before asking?

You can ring up and explain that a friend applied for the same course and has had a decision and ask when they expect to decide on your application. It’s a perfectly reasonable question.
