While the custom of covering your head in church used to be followed by most Catholic women, today it's use seems to be a matter of personal preference. Princess Caroline, by the looks of it, favour wearing a veil for funerals and a hat for other church services.I don't really understand the rules of use of the black mantilla, for women not very closed to the deceased. Pcs Caroline wore one, but queen Sofia didn't cover her head. I noticed that most of the ladies had not had covered (hat or mantilla) does anyone know the protocol for this.
I remember on late Prince Rainier funeral both his daughters were wearing long heavy mantillas covering also shoulders. But yesterday princess Tatiana was uncovered.
