I think that at least the King and the Queen go to church every sunday.
I once heard an interesting story of them, during a travel in America, requesting for a Sunday Mass.

There is a small anedocte protagonised by King Juan Carlos - the protocol experts warned the Priest that he should bow his head when he was presented to the King. But when he approached the priest the King took his hand, bowed, and kissed his ring.

During that mass several people gave testimony of the great devotion and faith the Kings showed throughout the cerimony.

Regards,
mtbcm :)

A picture of Rania and Abdullah's first visit at the Pope's Summer Residence, Castel Gandolfo in September 1999:

The second visit, which was also Castel Gandolfo. Apologies for the previous mistake, I had thought it was the Vatican,

I must say that when Queen Rania visited the Pope he was in his holiday residence and the visit was only semi-official, so the Queen was allowed to wear a grey dress.

I thought it was because the first time she visited the Pope they didn't go to the Vatican but to his summer residence? Therefore she was not required to wear black? At least that what I remember reading on the forum somewhere, is that incorrect though?
As the 2nd time she visited the Pope t was at the Vatican and she wore black.
Yes, because she got it wrong first time round.

Thats right - she wore grey the first time because it wasn't an official visit and not at the Vatican. The second time she wore black because it was official and they were at the Vatican. I think she should have worn black the first time as well but there we are.

Yeah that's right. I looked it up on a website and even posted a link to it in one of the KA and QR threads a while back.
Like Saturn said, Rania wasn't required to wear black during that visit.
The second time she chose to wear black eventhough she was still visiting the Pope at his summer residence and not the Vatican.

It looked white on many pictures and black or any darker colour would have been better.

She didn't get it wrong as has been previously explained. She wasn't required to wear black on her first visit.

Queen Margrethe II

Does anyone have any pictures of Queen Margrethe II visiting the Pope (not the Pope in Denmark), did she ever go to the Vatican, apart from the Papal Funeral 2005, and did she wear a mantilla.

She looked stunning - so very elegant and not totally plastered in makeup to show some respect to the church.

I think I have understood the rule du blanc, but what happens with Christian royals who are neither Catholic nor Protestants?
As the royal family of Greece or the princely family of Yugoslavia, which are both Orthodox?
What colour should e.g. Anne Marie wear if she visited the pope? Grey? :p

She'd wear black. Orthodoxy follows the same rule as the protestants.

Hi Josephine - a few Royals have made official visits to the Vatican including King Abdullah and Queen Rania. King Albert, Queen Paola and family, Prince Albert of Monaco and then those who met the Pope at his inauguration have had private visits. Not royal but Laura Bush and Cherie Blair have now both met the Holy Father.
