Do we think Her Majesty will visit The Pope is full black dress, orders, tiara etc? My understanding is the first visit to any reigning Pontiff is in full dress with the outfit standard we saw back in 2000 (ie day dress, veil etc) for subsequent visits.

Personally I'm split on what will happen this time round - while secretly hoping for the full blown outfit I really doubt whether it'll happen!

If this report is correct, she won't even be wearing black.

The previous first visits were also all state visits, and this just appears to be a quick audience, so even if she does change into black I would expect day dress.

I think this visit was scheduled one or two years ago but was cancelled at the last minute because HM was unwell. This time the Pope is included though.

Thanks, I'll be a wee bit disappointed if HM doesn't at least change into black- she usually seems such a stickler for protocol!

Today it was also announced that The Queen along with P. Philip will visit Rome April 3 where she will have lunch with President Napolitano and will meet the Pope. (She will not be wearing black or mantilla) (She was to visit Italy last March but the visit was cancelled due to her gastroenterisis ? Spelling:) I'm looking forward to having the Queen in Italy! Shame that Rome is a bit too far from where I live. :(

Didn't protocol dictates that The Pope must visit The Queen first? I always thought the Head of State with less time in office visits the one with more time first.

The Pope has given the Queen a priceless gift for Prince George: an orb of lapis lazuli with the Cross of St Edward the Confessor.

Fair swap? The Queen has given the Pope a hamper of royal estate products and framed photos of herself and Philip.

A more relaxed meeting.
