Do we know if any of the Catholic members of the BRF were present? I'm thinking of Lord and Lady Nicholas Windsor or Princess Michael.

It is indeed always crowded on holidays Duc et Pair, but not to the extent as it was for the funeral Mass for John Paul II when upwards of 2 million pilgrims packed the Square and beyond.

The crowds were so massive that they could be seen from outer space satellite!
