Yeah, I tohught the same thing... well, I heard that the Pope speaks Spanish so maybe they should have spoken Cervantes's language. The Queen speaks perfect German, and the King perfect Italian so this is quite an interesting situation isn't it?

I read that the conversation was mainly in Italian and if the Queen can't speak it, how did she know what was happening

Well, it's not that difficult for a Latin speaker to follow a conversation in Italian... it's harder to speck (and that she probably did in German, since she masters it), but one can perfectly listen to Italian and understand the meaning of it...

You're right, it's easy to understand an Italian conversation when you speak Spanish and French, just like the Queen... so I guess she figured out easily what the Pope and the King were talking about.
