Only under the current pontiff has protocol become more relaxed for Catholics.

It's hugely ironic-to me at least-that non Catholics continue to appear with dignity and dressed appropriately in the presence of the Successor to St Peter, and (some) Catholics are content to appear dressed and behaved as if it's just another lunch with the CEO...of course with Pope Bergoglio's approval.

Not a fan, as you have probably guessed.

That's the way I've understood it.
I've often wondered how the whole thing worked with Protestant monarchs meeting the Pope.

When Royals visit the Pope, is there a registration book they have to sign prior to the visit?

I came across this video of the first official visit of newly-crowned King Felipe VI of Spain and his spouse to the Vatican. Queen Letizia wore white. However, why did she not wear a hat or veil?

The dress code was business suit. You can see that with the Pope, wearing his usual white soutane. The previous Pope had a stricter protocol which meant he wore choir dress with a red or white mozetta (depending on the liturgical season and the temperature).

This Pope is more of the school: No fuss, please.

The Dutch royal couple made a State Visit, but the Pope did stick to his daily white soutane and so the Dutch royal couple wore no gala either:

Under Benedictus XVI we certainly would have seen Letizia, Mathilde and Máxima in gala, with Orders and grand jewels.

The current Pontiff certainly has relaxed the once very strict Papal protocol rules.
