A Catholic Head of State or Head of Government need to wear white whereas a non-Catholic Head of State or Head of Government need to wear black when visiting the Pope at the Vatican.This rule does not apply when the Pope visits a Head of State or Head of Government at his or her country.

Good question...even QEII wore black when meeting Pope John Paul II with a tiara and veil attached to it, I believe..

There has to be some loophole to this as I cannot imagine MII breaching protocol on purpose.

Whenever Elizabeth II visited the 1st time she wore veil, tiara etc. The second time there was a new Pope so she repeated the formal dress code, the third time however it was still JPII and she still wore black lace, eventhough it was just a suite and hat. So does that not point to the fact that perhaps Margrethe II should still have worn black?

I donīt think so but you also have to know that thes 2 queens are from 2 diffrent kinde of generation and they migth have 2 diffrent opinions about what to wear.

When it comes to the conventions and dress protocol associated with the Vatican (which is quite strict and rather clear), it falls without the monarch's discretion to decide which colour they wear. The personalities of the monarchs are irrelevant when adhering to established procedure.

I quite agree, when Protocol makes clear what one should wear then you should stick to it, its like turning up to a white tie gala dinner in your jeans.
Wear black to meet the Pope in the Vatican if your not a Catholic Queen or the Grand Duchess of Luxemburg!!

only female catholic monarchs and female consorts are allowed to wear white when meeting the Holy Father:

while they are catholic, caroline is not a reigning monarch or a consort and the men must still wear black.

All other royal women, Catholic or not must wear black to the Vatican.
this almost correct - all female reigning monarchs or female consorts are permitted to wear white when meeting the Pope as long as they're catholic. at present, these are the only women who fit that criteria. if there are women from other countries, then they too would be allowed to wear white.

since Princess Grace was not a Queen or a consort she would not be permitted to wear white to the Vatican.

although there is protocol with regards to dress colour, many people no longer practice it. i think it means more to a catholic than someone from another religion.

Yes, I saw it too and I'm not sure according the rules that Marina Doria was right to do it because she is not a queen reigning. More as her husband had signed that he is giving up at his royal prerogatives on the italian crown to go into Italy, she never will be catholic queen.

I don't know how we have to interprate this way of doing !

according to the dictionary a monarch is a sovereign such as a king or empress. Prince Ranier was a ruling prince but he wasn't a ruling monarch so that means that Grace wasn't eligible to wear white when meeting the Pope.

as for this other lady, marina doria, wearing white - well if she isn't a reigning catholic monarch then she broke protocol.

with regards to the black/white issue...as with many old traditions in the catholic church dressing in black/white when meeting the Holy Father is becoming less common. the white/black issue probably means more to a roman catholic (and a traditional roman catholic at that) than it does to people from other faiths. while it is protocol and does show respect for his postion, i don't think the Holy Father would hold it against anyone if they chose to wear white or any other colour.

Rainier was a monarch. A monarch doesn't just have to be a king or queen, If a country is ruled by a prince, a grand duke, a sultan or a sheik then that person is the monarch.

here is the White Privilege according to Wikipedia:
The White Privilege, or Privilege du blanc, is a privilege held by female Catholic Monarchs whether a consort or a regnant, wherein they are allowed to wear white when in an audience with the Pope.

my aplologies about the ranier error.

so to round out the discussion - only a catholic queen or consort or regnant is permitted to wear white...not a princess. the reason princess grace did not wear white is because she is not a queen or a consort or a regnant.
