If he would, he still would be very welcome at the Vatican! The pope shall be much more tolerant towards the duties of a head of state then some people here...

Maybe the King of the Netherlands and Queen Máxima will be represented by their cousin Prince Jaime de Bourbon de Parme and his spouse Princess Viktória. Recently the King has appointed his cousin as the Ambassador representing the Kingdom of the Netherlands at the Holy See. It is unlikely the King and Queen themselves will attend the proceedings at the Vatican. After all the King is not catholic and today he is celebrating his birthday inside the family sphere.

Was King Letsie III of Lesotho also present? It seemed to me that I saw him.

I watched only a part of the ceremony but it was very poignant!

Saw bits of it on TV, very beautiful ceremony. The sea of people reminded me of John Paul II's funeral...it was packed!

Surprised Prince Albert of Monaco or any of his relatives were not at the mass

Why was Albert's presence a surprise? He is a(former reigning) King, a Catholic one, and is representing the Catholic Belgian RF.

The Belgian RF had close relationships with both John XXIII and John Paul II.

I am happy to see that Juan Carlos has recovered sufficiently to attend this event, I didn't expect to see him. I thought he would send Felipe and Letizia.

Yes, I agree with you Marty. Albert is a Catholic Head of State and if he could not attend he should have sent Princess Charlene or one of his nephews.

I sometimes don't understand Albert's behavior at all. His parents would never have made such a faux pas.

It is always packed on highdays (Christmas, Easter, Jubilees, canonizations and papal funerals as well inthronisations). In Europe these events are always broadcast via Eurovision and I can not remember there was ever an empty Piazza San Pietro...
