An article about the Pope's sister
Pope's sister prayed he wouldn't be picked - CNN.com

Buenos Aires (CNN) -- Maria Elena Bergoglio was in her home west of Buenos Aires last week when she heard the shocking news: Jorge Mario Bergoglio -- her brother -- was the new pope.
In the past, she had prayed that the cardinals wouldn't pick him.
"During the previous conclave, I was praying for him not to be elected ... because I didn't want my brother to leave," she told CNN en Español on Monday. "It's a position that was a little selfish."
But this time around, Bergoglio said she changed her tone.

No idea why WA is not wearing a uniform. It seems that Máxima is wearing the oval shaped open diamond brooch that we have thus far only seen on Queen Beatrix, also worn when HM announced her abdication.

I think Willem-Alexander is wearing the official dress for his position when he becomes King - this is what he will wear at his inauguration. He will no longer be allowed to wear armed forces uniform.

I have read that the Pope wished Everyone "a happy day and good appetite" at the end of his Angelus-I thought that was a funny way of ending the prayer :-)
Usually it is "urbi et orbi" -at least that´s what the last pope said when I was in Rome...

from Wikipedia:
Urbi et Orbi ("to the City [of Rome] and to the World"; literally, "[to (the)] City and to [the] World") denotes a papal address and Apostolic Blessing that is given to the City of Rome and to the entire world, on certain occasions. It was a standard opening of Ancient Roman proclamations.

It is interesting to see that the Duchesse of Lux.& Paola chose white and Maxima & Letizia decided to take the safe option of black.The ladies look very dignified and elegant,I enjoy seeing the beautiful lace on their head-does it have a special name? Q Sofia liked the mantilla, a special head gear for Spanish ladies.
Are there any royals from Austria or Germany going?Austrian politicians are highly enthusiastic about the new pope and many ministers are going to attend.

The wives of the Catholic sovereigns have the Privilège du blanc, blauerengel. Maxima and Letizia didn't opt for the safe way, but they should wear black according to protocol.

We did have a discussion about the Privilege du blanc in this thread already and some ppl wondered if Maxima and Letizia would wear white!
Letizia is from the Spanish Catholic RF-is she banned from wearing white because of her divorce?

How do the lace scarfs stay in place, with hairpins?
All the ladies looked very elegant and the gentlemen very handsome. :-)

Perhaps only queens/grand-duchesses are allowed, not the princesses.

Letizia is not Queen of Spain,Queen Sofia is the only Spanish royal who has the Privilege du blanc.

Exactly. Only Catholic QUEENS are allowed to wear white. Every other Catholic royal and everybody else has to wear black.

Thanks for clearing up and sharing your knowledge,Annie S. & An Ard Ri
So if Letizia becomes Queen one day she will be entitled to wear white?

Here´s some bit from Wikipedia:
Privilège du blanc ("privilege of the white") is a traditional privilege extended to female monarchs entitled to the hereditary style of Catholic Majesty, and wives of such Catholic Monarchs, whereby they are allowed to wear white in an audience with the Pope.

By the way, I loved Pope Francis mass a lot-especially that he has asked everyone to respect the environment and help disadvantaged people!Well done,I am happy for the new pope :-)

Yes when Letizia becomes Queen consort of Spain she will be entitled to the Privilège du blanc.
