Princess Estelle's first nanny (who was also Victoria's nanny) Elisabeth Zimmermann took care of Leonore after meeting with the Pope.

Silvia and Madeleine are lutherans, so how do they address to the pope, "Your Holiness"?

The Pope is addressed as "Your Holiness " whether your Catholic or not.

I really like the fact that they went formal. Leonore is a very cute and well-behaved little Princess.

What a lovely visit must have been for Leonore! I knew it that the Pope would put at ease the family ,and most of all, would play and be sweet with the little girl... He is charming with children!

At first I thought it was a little strange that Leonore attended, but then I read that Chris is Catholic (which I didn't realise beforehand), so now her attendance makes more sense. It's lovely that they brought her along. Have any other royal children (past or present) been "presented" to the Pope?

I couldn't help but notice that Chris still looks a little uncomfortable. I think he looks comfortable in informal settings, such as in the Aret Med Kungafamiljen clip of him with Madeleine and Leonore in one of the Palaces' gardens, but in official/formal occasions such as this he often appears as uncomfortable IMO. Perhaps on this occasion though, he was a little nervous as he was meeting the Pope, which I can imagine would be a very important event for him.

I agree, Pope Francis seems to be excellent with children and I loved the photos of him with little Leonore.

Do you know if they communicated in english btw ? As far as I know the Pope doesn't speak english very well. ( I remember he had an interpreter when Queen Elizabet met with him)

Madeleine met the Pope when she was younger along with her siblings.
The Spanish children met him in 2011.
Same with the Jordan Royals in 2009.

Marty91charmed, Sarahbellar has posted a video a few posts above and she mentions that Chris spoke in German and Silvia in Spanish, so I can imagine that those were the languages that were mostly spoken between the royals and the Pope today.

Sarahbellar, thank you for the information. It's interesting that the Jordanian Royals met the Pope. Cute to hear that Madeleine met him when she was little with Victoria and Carl Philip, too.

(Suddenly I can't quote posts which explains the format I'm using!)

I saw an interpreter when Queen Silvia met with him privately but she also greeted him in Spanish and they exchanged pleasantries in Spanish.
