Thank you both for the pictures!

PRINCE Charles met the Pope today — and also found time to make a surprise joke about David Beckham to Italian politicians.

In a break with protocol the Prince was introduced to the Pontiff alongside wife Camilla — normally spouses are brought in afterwards.

Pope Benedict XVI and Britain's Prince Charles spent 15 minutes talking about the environment and other affairs during a meeting on Monday, the Vatican said.

Thank you so much for these photos. The expression on the faces together with Pope Benedikt seem to me so touching.

Her Royal Highness's outfit is OK, its the right colour for a start, but her dress is a bit short and the veil isn't very nice!

+ Also traditionally the DM managed to get something wrong. According to the Sun's press photographer, Arthur Edwards, who was actually presented to the Pope as well (see article above) Camilla was not presented to the Pope separately but they were both presented together & after they had talked to the Pope for 15 minuttes the Prince then had an hour's discussion with the Pope's Secretary of State, whilst Camilla had a tour of the Vatican (which Diana certainly didn't get). The fact that the Sun newspaper of all papers got it factually correct and the DM didn't shows just what a rubbishy paper the DM now is!!!

I think the dress is lovely, especially the black rectangular brocading effect & the close up photo of Camilla as she arrived smiling & looking to her right is fantastic.

Prince Charles warned that the world risked plunging into a "new Dark Age" unless urgent action was taken on climate change, during his first meeting with Pope Benedict XVI at the Vatican.

Prince Charles's meeting today with Pope Benedict XVI is a curious snapshot of the progress that women have made in the last 500 years. .

I don't get the need to unnecessarily compare Camilla to Diana--I suppose they are only looking to sell some papers--I detest sensationalism!!

On another note, Camilla looked lovely in that black dress with the lace veil and deco brooch. I also like how she was presented with her husband rather than after. It shows, at least to me, that she is highly regarded by the Prince as a helpmate and partner.

The dress looks shorter in some views but actually it is below the knee. I think the material seems to wrinkle easily and get bunched up (the skirt). When smoothed out it looked nice. The veil was lacy and old fashioned--liked it.
