Today, the annual new year's reception of the members of the diplomatic corps by Pope Francis took place at the Vatican. Naturally, Prince Nikolaus, Liechtenstein's non-resident ambassador to the Holy See, was among those present. As always, Prince Nikolaus had a rather prominent seat due to the fact that he is one of the longest serving ambassadors to the Holy See. This time around, he was not accompanied by his wife Princess Margaretha though. A video of the greeting can be found on Youtube, Rome Reports has a transcription of the Pope's speech for those interest.
