Official visit: Vatican City

9 March 2015

King Philippe & queen Mathilde's official visit to Vatican City was originally scheduled for December 2014 but had to be postponed because of queen Fabiola's passing.

Arrival at the airport last night. Queen Mathilde on crutches takes another exit to avoid steps.




Philippe & Mathilde were received by pope Francis at 10:30.




They talked for half an hour and exchanged gifts.







 After the meeting there was a private tour and a reception with cardinals at the Belgian embassy.
