Madame Macron's dress was nice. However ... was there a reason for Madame Macron and other ladies not to wear a veil?

Vatican protocol isn't what it used to be. A bit ironic that the last time we saw the old protocol regarding dress out in full was when Silvia and Madeleine of Sweden visited the Vatican together with Chris O'Neil and little Leonore.

It is unfortunate that Pope Francis decided to loosen the protocol rules. It is equally unfortunate that Madame Macron decided not to wear a veil.

Why? I think Madame Macron looked lovely without a veil. Why 'unfortunate'?

I think that it is important to adhere to the protocol. Following the protocol is a sign of respect for such old institution as the Roman Catholic Church. Wearing a black outfit with a black veil is the dress code for a Vatican visit. It is not complicated. So it would have been more appropriate for Madame Macron and other ladies in the delegation to cover their heads.

I think that comes from another time, when wearing veils was commonplace and hence easy to purchase. No longer the case. Hats and veils are no longer worn in Catholic churches. It's no longer linked to 'respect'. It makes sense that the Pope set the protocol aside, I think. JMO.

The rule on women covering their heads is actually still in force and has never been abolished and is in the Bible. Women in Japan and Korea still cover their heads at Mass as do those attending Tridentine Masses.

You must be referring to (as you are) those Catholics who never took up the relaxation of the customs for head-covering. I haven't worn head covering in Church for all of my life, except for special events, usually sacramental in nature (First Communion, Confirmation, Marriage). I think it has to do with the Second Vatican Council in the early 60's, not so? Mention of the Bible in this respect in reference to the Catholic Church doesn't apply. Head-covering is cultural.

Also, they didn't kiss his ring. I'm afraid Pope Francis isn't my favourite Pope and has been a bit of a disaster for the Church.

Quite the reverse, he is bringing much needed authenticity and a lived ethical and moral stance. Breath of fresh air, akin to Pope John XXIII imo. Dispensing with medieval customs is to be lauded.

In fact, he isn't going far enough. I wish he would rollback to the custom of married clergy in the Roman Rite, at least. It's clear he will not allow women priests, unfortunately.
