Privilege du blanc (privilege of the white) is normally reserved only for female Catholic Monarchs and wives of Catholic Monarchs. Everyone else is supposed to wear black. Queen Elizabeth has always done so during her meetings with the Pope (of the time).

There have been exceptions to this rule, however. Raisa Gorbachyova wore red to meet the Pope. On the other hand, Cherie Blair (wife of the former British Prime Minister) wore white - despite not being the Monarch's or indeed the Head of State's spouse. That caused quite a controversy.

today the italian press (corriere della sera) announced that this will be a private visit, the Queen will not stay at the Quirinale (the residence of the Italian president) but will visit him. then the Queen will visit the Pantheon, the church where the savoia kings are buried.
