Rome Reports: Royal Families and Their Religion


  1. ahhh the "privilege du blanc" instead of black mantillas, the catholic queens wear white. i remember a similar incident when former first lady of the Philippines Imelda Marcos had an audience with Pope John Paul II, instead of black she wore the white Philippine national gown with a white mantilla.

  2. What is the reason that the catholic queens and grand duchesses wear white. I am curious if there is any symbolism behind "privilege du blanc"?
