Let me guess and say that she will wear white on Monaday. Why? Because she is one of only a few ladies who may do so and also because she is an observant Catholic.

IRRC she wore white when she met Pope Benedict. But she wore black at the official ceremony for Pope Francis.

The protocole is no so strict as in old times for the Queens and princesses who have the 'privilège du blanc', Charlene wore the black for the inaugural mass of Pope François, Queen Letizia wore nothing on her head when she met the Pope , Quuen Paola wore black dress at the big mass for the année sainte' in december, her former sister in law , Queen Fabiola always wore the white when she was the queen consort or queen widow, but she wore white pants.
We are far away of the Queens or princesses wearing tiares and sacs and decoration when they met the papes, it is a pity, I liked this decorum.

As i understand it, this privilige means that you *can* wear white if you wish, but you do not *have* to; i think i read once that Q.Elisabeth of Belgium rarely used the privilege...

We are sure now that the princess consort of Monaco has the 'privilege of the blanc' ;It is nice that Monaco is seen as a catholic Principauty

Many thanks Melina for your prompt posting. As usual Charlene is very, very, elegant.

Its a personal prerogative I think and not something that should reflect on a person's status or rank or heirachy. From what I know of Pope Francis, this kind of thing will seem silly to him and he'd be more inclined to be color blind to protocol but more happy to meet the soul.

I know it's not meant to be a fashion parade but I don't think Charlene's choice of coat and dress do her any favours.

The Prince and Princess looked splendid. I know that Pope Franciscus seems popular with his sloppy appearance but somewhere I find that when a visitor dresses up to the max to meet him, he should dress up too.

The former Pope, Benedictus XVI, wore a choir dress and a red mozzetta or white mozzetta with or without fur (depending on the time of the year). With this showing that he is not only the Bishop of Rome but also the head of state of the Holy See. Is there an Official Visit? Then a choir dress is worn over the usual white cassock and then a mozzetta. This is very visible on this picture. The President and the First Lady were dressed perfectly. The Pope, their host, answered with equal perfect manners. I miss that with the current Pope.

My compliments for the Prince and Princess of Monaco. Despite the Pope not taking any effort to upgrade his appearance, the princely couple looked perfect. Note that everyone in the Vatican looked better dressed than the head of state of the Holy See. Hmmm...

Imo one of the greatest things about the current pope is that he takes catholicism back to what really matters: spiritual life and respect for others, and not all the fancy looks and splendour that sometimes takes too much precedence.

If looks were important than "Thow shalt dress up when meeting others" would be in the 10 commandments
