As far as I know, only Catholic Royals, both ladies and gentleman, normally curtsey to the Pope and kiss his ring. All the other royals don't have to.

Anyhow, Camilla didn''t.

I find this very surprising given the Church's stance on divorce. But Camilla looked very nice.

Talking

She is mistress of the feathered look - but today Camilla involuntarily tried something a touch wilder.
The Duchess of Cornwall couldn't help but laugh as a Venice breeze ruffled her usual hairdo into a windswept mop

Indeed, Ruby P! The RCC's stance on divorce and adultery, one would think, would make the visit at the very least, awkward. I am actually somewhat surprised that the Pope was willing to meet with Charles and Camilla. Especially as CHarles wants to be 'defender of faith'...one would infer he includes Catholics in that group. Quite an example to the people.

The RC church recognises divorce, it's called 'annulment' cancel the marriage as though it never happened. The 2 most famous royal catholic divorcees have had annulments, Princess Caroline of Monaco ( from her marriage to Philippe Junot) and Princess Michael of Kent ( from Tom Troubridge) The RC church also doesn't have a problem with a civil marriage that ends in divorce ( Letizia Ortiz) since that marriage wasn't considered a 'real' marriage Letizia was able to get married in a catholic church as though she had never been married before.

Why would the meeting be awkward or the Pope not willing to meet Charles and Camilla? One of the most important tenets of the catholic church is forgiveness, the sacrament of Reconciliation is where catholics are given a clean slate from whatever sins they may have committed. There is no condemnation of sinners forever, and using a Gospel story here. Mary Magdalene who was being condemned for adultery, Jesus was the one who said, 'let he is is without sin cast the first stone'. The Pope was merely living the example of Jesus. If the Pope were to ostracise those people he considered sinners then he wouldn't be living his faith.

Charles wanting to be a 'defender of faiths' isn't a problem either as christian churches come together in eucumenical celebrations.

Good comment. I would just add that in all Christian religions-forgiveness is an important tenet.
Sorry if off topic

I don't think religion has anything to do with it. The Pope couldn't refuse to meet them, they're representatives of the Queen and the British people, a snub to them is a snub to the UK. Added to which, they'll one day be King and Queen of quite a few British Catholics and so it's in the Pope's best interests to form a relationship with them. Then again, would the UK really miss the Vatican State if it didn't exist?

The only way I would see the visit "akward" would be if it was the same Pope that met with Charles and Diana.
But this is a different Pope.
