Grand Duchess Meets Pope

Grand Duchess Maria-Teresa was received in audience by Pope Francis at the Vatican today. The Grand Duchess was the Pope's first visitor after the summer break and while the Press Office of the Holy See did not communicate the reason for her visit to the Vatican - as can be heard in the video above, they talked about her family - it presumably either had to do with her being a Catholic, the Catholic wife of a sovereign, a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador, or generally committed person. Whatever the reason, Grand Duchess Maria-Teresa did to excercise her privilège du blanc and instead wore black.
