I especially like the "walking assistance device." I wonder if my health plan would provide similar coverage.

I don't care for the large print on her. It is especially unflattering with her injury and having to wear flats. Poor thing, I feel for her. :(

Her Majesty looked very elegant and regal,its a pity that royals no longer wear tiaras when visiting the Pope!

First- Love it.
Second- Love it. Elegant. Is her Majesty Catholic?
Third- Read that Pope Francis relaxed the rules.

They do, when it is a State Visit. Note that the Pope himself also did not wear a choir dress and a mozetta. He was in his plain old daily white cassock.

When the Prince of Orange, the Prince of Asturias, Princess Máxima and Princess Letizia were at the Investiture of the Pope (see picture, click on the picture to blow up to XXL), they were a step higher in protocol, the ladies in long and the gentlemen in white tie or ceremonial uniform, but still no diadems as this was not a State Visit, which is one step higher again.



Often a State Visit to the Holy See is a spin-off from a State Visit to Rome. Even then it depends on the willingness of the visitors to wear diadems or not. Queen Beatrix (a Protestant Queen) did not. Queen Elizabeth II (a Protestant Queen) did. Queen Sonja (a Protestant Queen) did not. Queen Silvia (a Protestant Queen) did.



I hope to see Queen Letizia, Queen Mathilde and Queen Máxima (all catholic Queens) to wear it to the utmost formality but... it also depends on the Pope. It is known that Pope Benedictus XVI wanted a smooth execution of papal protocol. The same under Pope Johannes Paulus II. The current Pope seems not to be interested at all and most likely does not care at all what his visitors wear and what Vatican protocol means. He has a lot of similarities with Pope Johannes XXIII, who was a simple man too, but the last one remained attached to the centuries old papal protocol. As long as the Pope does not make that "step up" (wearing a choir dress, a mozetta, a papal stole), the royals will also not do.

She looked absolutely lovely. Perfect and simple style. The outfit is so regal, elegant, and so beautiful. Mathilde looks great.

Why should Maxima Wife of a Protestant King be in White ??

Only Letizia, Mathilde, Maria Teresa of Luxembourg Catholic MM and RH have the privilège du blanc.
The Princess of Liechtenstein , the Princess of Monaco as Serine Highnesses don't have this privilège

So a lady who was born, baptized and raised roman-catholic, went to a German nun-school and to a Catholic university, who married with formal dispensation from the Church and who is a Queen of a country where the roman-catholics are the largest christian domination, should be refused to wear white? Hmmm....

Note that the Vatican does not actively pursue the so-called privilège du blanc. Any lady can wear any colour of the rainbow in front of the Pope. As long as they are decently dressed.

Mathilde looked lovely! The outfit is great and it fits well, I can imagine this in the near future worn with a hat. The white veil is lovely and the lace is a nice design.

I think Mathilde looked wonderful. Her white ensemble looked to be very plain but elegant and offset with a truly fabulous white lace mantilla. But, if the Queen of Belgium turned up in anything less than the finest Brussels Lace, I would have been very surprised indeed.

It is a little difficult to get a real sense of the ensemble when she was on crutchers as her shoulders hunched a little and so the best view was of her seated in her wheelchair or when she stood unaided accepting a gift from HH.

I thought this was a very beautiful shot of Mathilde.

Queen Mathilde looks serene and enchanting - and what a beautiful lace veil! I agree with dazzling - I hope we see the coat and dress again soon.

The photo of HM is simply beautiful! Soft, and so feminine with the edge of her mantilla half covering her face in such exquisite lace...

(..) She tries hard to look decent and relaxed, poor thing...
The white outfit looks very nice and quite elegant.

She truly looks like a Madonna in these photos. (By that I mean the Blessed Mother, not the singer.)
