I assume the non Catholic isn't subject to the protocol (Margrethe even wore grey IIRC?) but it seems that the protocol is quite flexible for the Catholic too?.
Only under the current pontiff has protocol become more relaxed for Catholics.

It's hugely ironic-to me at least-that non Catholics continue to appear with dignity and dressed appropriately in the presence of the Successor to St Peter, and (some) Catholics are content to appear dressed and behaved as if it's just another lunch with the CEO...of course with Pope Bergoglio's approval.

Not a fan, as you have probably guessed.

That's the way I've understood it.
I've often wondered how the whole thing worked with Protestant monarchs meeting the Pope.

When Royals visit the Pope, is there a registration book they have to sign prior to the visit?

I came across this video of the first official visit of newly-crowned King Felipe VI of Spain and his spouse to the Vatican. Queen Letizia wore white. However, why did she not wear a hat or veil?
