Let me guess and say that she will wear white on Monaday. Why? Because she is one of only a few ladies who may do so and also because she is an observant Catholic.

IRRC she wore white when she met Pope Benedict. But she wore black at the official ceremony for Pope Francis.

The protocole is no so strict as in old times for the Queens and princesses who have the 'privilège du blanc', Charlene wore the black for the inaugural mass of Pope François, Queen Letizia wore nothing on her head when she met the Pope , Quuen Paola wore black dress at the big mass for the année sainte' in december, her former sister in law , Queen Fabiola always wore the white when she was the queen consort or queen widow, but she wore white pants.
We are far away of the Queens or princesses wearing tiares and sacs and decoration when they met the papes, it is a pity, I liked this decorum.

As i understand it, this privilige means that you *can* wear white if you wish, but you do not *have* to; i think i read once that Q.Elisabeth of Belgium rarely used the privilege...

Many thanks Melina for your prompt posting. As usual Charlene is very, very, elegant.

Its a personal prerogative I think and not something that should reflect on a person's status or rank or heirachy. From what I know of Pope Francis, this kind of thing will seem silly to him and he'd be more inclined to be color blind to protocol but more happy to meet the soul.

We are sure now that the princess consort of Monaco has the 'privilege of the blanc' ;It is nice that Monaco is seen as a catholic Principauty

I know it's not meant to be a fashion parade but I don't think Charlene's choice of coat and dress do her any favours.
