That caused a MAJOR row. The Belgians were all kinds of upset over that and the government quickly said something very close to 'what young woman doesn't want to tell her priest first.' Well, actually...Fabiola took the elevator up instead of the stairs and that started people talking and the pope let it slip.

how sad for this to happen precisely to fabiola, who had problems getting pregnant. i guess it would be bad for any royal family to have the secret get out before they want to publish it, let alone to get such speculation going on when you are having difficulties conceiving.

Episcopal Great ,
When she is the only one in white was for the Beatfication of the Last Emperor Karl of Austria in Rome. Pope jean Paul II wanted it, he was Born Carol W because his Father served in the Austrian - Hongarian Armees.

Just as a friendly fyi...
Fabiola didn't have trouble conceiving. She had trouble carrying to term but apparently there were different problems with the various pregnancies - that according to Fabiola when she spoke about it in like 2008. That was almost worse I think because there were five hopeful beginnings only to be dashed. When I see that video my heart is just so sad for them - Baudouin looks so darn happy.

I think I may have missed a couple of pics of Baudouin and Fabiola with John Paul II. JPII was very pleased I believe with Baudouin's strong stand against Belgium's abortion liberalization law when he was found unable to reign or "resigned" for a day.

Does anyone know if Lord or Lady Nicholas Windsor have met the Pope; I know they have both had engagements at the Vatican from time to time.

Their Majesties The King and Queen of the Netherlands visited The Pope earlier today.

Queen Maxima wore a full length black dress and black lace mantilla.

In the 1900s who was the first Royal to visit the Pope? From what country was this Royal from?

King Vittorio Emanuele III of Italy and his wife paid homage to His Holiness Pope Pius XI in 1929.

Why must you wear black when visiting the Pope? What is the significance of that?

In the Roman Catholic tradition, black garments signify both virtues of piety and humility. Protocol for papal audiences required that women wear a long black dress with a high collar and long sleeves, and a black mantilla.

Does the Catholic have to wear long dress length? As I see most of the Roman Catholic royal ladies (with or without privilege of white) wear knee length dresses (e.g. Mathilde, Letizia, Charlene and the Lux ladies), while some Protestant ladies wear long dress (e.g. Silvia). I assume the non Catholic isn't subject to the protocol (Margrethe even wore grey IIRC?) but it seems that the protocol is quite flexible for the Catholic too?.

The dresscode has been pretty much abandoned since Bergoglio became Pope.

I am sure that it is considered good manners to wear formal dresses of at least knee length and probably a "dull" colour, rather than anything brighter.....
