I´ve seen F&L and W&M greeting the Pope. He´s talked a lot with both Felipe and Maxima... the language, of course

Princess Maxima appears to be wipping her eyes in one of the Belga photo's it must have been an emotional ceremony for her.

I've always understood the Privilege du Blanc, but when Charlene wore white when she met the Pope last time, it caused some controversy and confusion, now she opts for black, maybe she did wrong last time and switched to black this time?

Maria-Therese looks lovely.

Maxima and Letizia look wonderful, as well. Charlene never looks happy to me.

I do believe that the wives of reigning monarchs (or princes) can wear either black or white.

Incorrect,only the wives of Catholic Monarchs or Catholic Regnants can wear white,everyone else wears black.

See this from an earlier post

Are you saying Albert of Monaco, although "just a prince" is not regnant?
