You many not care what you wear. That is your prerogative. However, it is insensitive to ridicule the faith and customs of the church that Albert and Charlene belong to and their children are baptised into.

They belong to a Church that has billions of believers who do not think that observing custom is nonsense and Charlene showed her respect to His Holiness in wearing white. The rituals of the church provide continuity and to belittle someone who observes to social mores of their church is unnecessary and unkind.

As of 2015, the following ladies are eligible for the privilege:

HM Queen Sofía of Spain (from her husband's accession in 1975)
HM Queen Paola of the Belgians (from her husband's accession in 1993)
HRH The Grand Duchess of Luxembourg (from her husband's accession in 2000)
HSH The Princess of Monaco (since 2013)
HM The Queen of the Belgians (from her husband's accession in 2013)
HM The Queen of Spain (from her husband's accession in 2014)
HRH The Princess of Naples

The privilege is not accorded to the wives of all Catholic monarchs or to the wives of non-Catholic monarchs. Even though they are Catholics, it is not accorded to wife of the King of Lesotho, or to the wife of the Prince of Liechtenstein, nor (until 2013) was it accorded to the wife of the Prince of Monaco. The privilege is also not accorded to Queen Máxima of the Netherlands, who is the Catholic wife of the Protestant King Willem-Alexander.

I do not know why Princess Marie or the King of Lesotho ' s wife are not accorded the privelege du blanc. That would be a situation in which no one but the Pope, or those who decide these things, are privy to that answer. It matters not if anyone accepts or agrees with who is allowed this privelege or not, or if people think it is silly/ridiculous, it just IS. Again [deep breath] it just IS.

A surprisingly accurate article (from what I could tell). It wouldn't surprise me if the authors had read this very thread, as almost all points in the article had been discussed here.

Several off-topic posts have been deleted. This is a discussion about royals visiting the Pope, not a debate on same-sex marriage.

It is reported that Queen Sofia greeted the pontiff before the start of the ceremony , and also the mother superior general of the Missionaries of Charity, Sister Mary Prema. Queen Sofia Foundation has continually collaborated with this congregation in Spain, and the queen herself formally met with the saintly nun in 1986 and 1987.Click image for larger version

On June 24, 1911, Princess Zita of Bourbon-Parma and her mother were received in audience by Pope Pius X. The Pope informed Zita that she was going to marry the heir to the throne. Pope Pius X remarked that Archduke Charles was the reward the Lord had given Austria for her services to the Church.
