Charles and Camilla visit to Italy and Germany, 26-30 April 2009

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are to meet the Pope for the first time on an official visit to Italy.

The royal couple will be granted a rare private audience with Benedict XVI at the Vatican later this month, which is likely to cause comment in Italy because both Prince Charles and Camilla are divorcees

Thanks for the infos Skydragon!
I didn't know they are coming to Italy soon.
I wonder why they say in the article: The royal couple will be granted a rare private audience with Benedict XV.
Private audiences are not rare at all!

Could it be seen as rare as both of them are divorced?
The Prince of Wales website has been updated, it is not just Rome but Germany as well!

That would surprise me. Charles is not even a Catholic. The Pope has recently met with a few people who are not "politically correct" in their private lifes, among them, connecting to the German topic, Horst Seehofer, a catholic German politician who fathered a child with a mistress and failed to commit himself neither to his mistress, nor to his wife for months.

Another interesting link.

Is that the difference, the fact that neither Charles nor Camilla are Catholics?

my point was that if the pope started checking on people lifes being lead in accordance with the idea of the catholic church before granting a private audience he would have a lot more spare time these days.

it shouldn't matter and it rightly so it doesn't when receiving foreign diginaries.

Well, the Roman Catholic Church cannot possibly see him as a divorced man since his ex-wife is dead. He would be considered a widower by the RC Church, wouldn't he?

Exactly. The Pope grants private audiences every day to people of different religion, nationality, status etc.,divorced and plurimarried too.
Exactly like any other Head of State.
I don't see the problem in granting a private audience also to the Crown Prince of England. It is a courtesy visit to a Head of State, like their visit to Italian President Napolitano.

It was the only reason suggested for it to have been called 'a rare private audience'. I forgot it is in the Mail who are not renowned for accuracy, IMO!

Prince Charles and HH The Pope, Relationship so far:

Meeting John Paul II, April 1985, with Diana, Princess of Wales
Getty Images - Charles Diana Pope Vatican
20 years later, April 2005, attending memorial mass in London for John Paul II, with Camilla Parker Bowles (fiancee)
Getty Images - Royals And Political Leaders Attend Service For Pope
A few days later, April 2005, attending funeral mass in Rome for John Paul II, on his own.

So first time meeting with Benedikt, and we can expect Camilla in the usual outfit for the occasion & headscarf.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are due to meet Pope Benedict XVI at the Vatican later

BBC NEWS | UK | Charles and Camilla to meet Pope

Dismissing the maxim, 'When in Rome, do as the Romans do', Charles flew in home-grown beef from his Highgrove estate and lamb from Wales by private jet.

They will tuck into the meat at a special lunch today cooked up by Italian chefs as part of Charles sustainable food campaign

When in Rome... Prince Charles brings a taste of home as he takes prime cuts of British meat on Italian tour | Mail Online
