  1. Thanks for the photos! The second one made me smile. πŸ™‚

    But tell me, do you have any idea why princess Charlene wore black this time? I thought privilège du blanc was extended to Monaco earlier this year.

    • I only wish I knew!! I don’t think anyone does. It may be that it was a one-off privilege, or a mistake on someone’s part that everyone pretended was meant to happen, or maybe Charlene chose to wear black – for some reason. If you find out or hear any hints, let me know! πŸ™‚

      • I’m beginning to think there might be a mistake involded. Shame on Charlene’s assistants if that is the case. But anyway, she looked nice. In white and in black. πŸ™‚

        I will keep my ears open and report to you if I hear anything. πŸ™‚

    • Oh, maybe its my Englishness, but I thought she was just doing the respectful thing and wearing a Black mantilla…?
      Inother words I haven’t the foggiest that there was any extra meaning – is there?

      • Laura has a great post about this subject here https://catholiccravings.wordpress.com/2013/01/14/repost-princess-charlene-makes-history-at-the-vatican/

        Traditionally few queens has had a privilege to wear white when meeting the pope while everyone else is wearing white. Earlier the princess of Monaco hasn’t had that privilege but in January princess Charlene wore white. Now she wore black again and that made me think why is that. Of course black dress and mantilla are respectful and beautiful but it’s just interesting why she didn’t wear white (like queen Paola of Belgium and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxemburg) if she could. πŸ™‚
