Important visit to the Vatican: Charlène of Monaco has traveled to the smallest country in the world, accompanied by her husband Prince Albert. What was at the top of the royal agenda? An audience with Pope Francis that made headlines thanks to Charlène’s outfit.

Vatican City – When Charlène von Monaco (44) had to turn her back on the principality after just a few days last November, this caused many Royal fans great concern, but her willingness to travel is now being received more positively. After all, the mother of two could not accompany her husband Prince Albert II (64) to official appointments for months.

Black instead of white: Charlene of Monaco renounces royal privilege at papal audience

Albert von Monaco completed many of his performances last year without his wife, so he certainly appreciates the moments together all the more. Although Charlene had to cancel several appointments on her last trip to Norway, she has now boarded the plane again for a special visit. None other than Pope Francis (85) received the regent couple for a personal audience in the Vatican.

At her last meeting with the head of the Catholic Church in 2016, Charlène of Monaco was still all in white – as a princess of a Catholic royal family, she enjoys the “privilege du blanc” (engl.: “privilege of the white”) and is allowed to wear white – this time she wasn’t quite so particular about the dress code. The 44-year-old wore a black midi dress by Terrence Bray, which she paired with a matching mantilla (veil) and nude Louis Vuitton pumps.

Despite the strict dress code: Charlene of Monaco shows her shoulders in the Vatican

The submarine neckline of the robe, which revealed Charlène’s shoulders, caused a stir. Since women in the Vatican usually have to keep their shoulders covered, some fans were surprised at the outfit choice of the fashion-conscious princess. Astonished Instagram users commented on the A-line dress with the words “pretty rebellious” and “a surprising choice”.

At one of her recent appearances, Charlène of Monaco only had a timid smile on her lips, which now got a little wider in the company of Pope Francis. Her faith gave the Monegasque country mother stability and strength during her severe ENT illness and the subsequent recovery phase. Sources used:
