Can anyone tell me or direct me to a website that would have a good pollinator chart for hazelnuts? I'm trying to find out if a Harry Lauder's Walking Stick can be used as a pollinator for a Royale.

Assuming your hazelnut is a cultivar of Corylus avellana (European hazel or filbert - the most common thing to grow I think), I don't see why there would be a problem using Harry Lauder's Walking Stick as a pollinator. They're the same genus and species. I don't know of any chart ranking cultivars by their effectiveness as a pollinator. Pollination of hazels is wind driven so the important thing would be that the two trees are close enough for the pollen to be blown onto the Rotale one.
