And neither were the King's sisters or his cousin Infante Carlos.

Only the King didn't kiss the ring of the Holy Father.

He didnt have communion after the last mass with the pope in Barcelona, either. Who knows.
Somehow the King comes across as grumpy, especially towards his wife. On one of the videos I think he brushed her arm away when she wanted to help.

The "bad manners" of the King was a protocol mistake of his. The Pope is head of state but doesn't review the troops like other heads of state, he just walks. When a head of the state reviews the troops with the king, the queen steps back. He's telling queen Sofía to step back and she knows she's supposed to be there, so she(and he ) are confused.

The Queen knows better the protocol than her husband.

You expect a man man of the king´s age with his physical conditions he´s currently suffering right now to bow down and kiss a ring?!

[QUOTE=Cory;1304714]Queen Sofia was in white because that's the privilege of a catholic Queen.


This goes only for meetings within the Vatican; outside it she, or any other woman catholic or not, could wear any colour she liked to!
Remember last years visit by the pope to Scotland? The Queen didn´t wear black either though she is, as we all know, no catholic!

Right now on TV in Italy (RAI 1) is on air the Prayer Vigil and I've just saw Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia. It's a pity that the weather was bad,with strong wind and rain.

The violent storm and winds forced the Holy Father to stop the outdoor Mass in "Los Cuatro Vientos" (the name of the place is "The four winds"?) amazing photo below; our Lord really blessed them with much rain:

What a shame! The 2nd pic in the article cracks me up for some reason! All the pics are nice- the Pope has a sunny smile to brighten the rainy day!
