I'm assuming the topic of the Falkland Islands was left off the agenda when HM met the Pope today. Might've been a bit awkward.

A lovely lavender outfit for a semi-personal visit to an unconventional Pope. I'd not be surprised at all if This Pope was not secretly pleased that she did not technically follow dress protocol for a formal audience.
And mods - my point is about protocol rather than fashion, hence, here.

According to member of british press on twitter
‏@byEmilyAndrews
pope told her not to wear black as an "informal" visit-not in Vatican palace, just a chat

I think wearing lavender/purple in Lent was a clever idea.

I think his asking was brilliant and yes - the lenten link is lovely. I like this Pope Francis guy!

A more relaxed meeting.
The Pope looks genuinely chuffed to bits with his gift from the Queen http://huff.to/1lpoa14 pic.twitter.com/KZzkw0ViKi
The Queen looks divine in that lavender outfit. Those people behind her with the president- guards maybe?- look impressive.
Nice picture of her with the pope.

Those rather impressive guards are the Corazzieri, a special mounted division of the Carabinieri (who are a kind of police, but... not the police), and they act as the President's guards. One of requirements to join the Corazzieri is being tall (at least 1,90 m).

Corazzieri - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


And Her Majesty looks wonderful.

Thanks for the information. What do you mean by police, but not police?

The Corazzieri are the Italian Presidents guard of honour.

Sorry, I didn't explain well. Carabinieri (which Corazzieri are a part of) are an armed force (previously part of the Army, now independent) with police duties. But we also have the Police, as any other country.

These two corps are traditionally seen as in competition, because many of their duties overlap.

I believe that the Carabinieri are a bit like the Gendarmerie in France.

Video:
The Queen has been to Rome today, with her first engagement at the Quirinal Palace, where she had lunch with the Italian President Giorgio Napolitano. Afterwards, the Queen met with the Pope at the Vatican, where they conversed and exchanged gifts. Among the presents given by the Pope was a lapis lazuli orb, decorated with a silver cross of Edward the Confessor for Prince George.-

No worries- An and Ri explained it to me, and now with your explanation, I got it!
By the way, just saw The Twitter pic of the pope's present for Prince George- wow!

Lovely Queen! I think Pope Francis doesn't mind the dress code :-)

The hamper of goods from the royal estates sounds very impressive. I like that the Pope will hand it over to a poor house. I probably would've kept mine though.
