Le privilège du blanc for Princess Charlene of Monaco

Template 1

As a follow up to the post and link I shared on The Catholic faith in the life of the Princess of Monaco, I would like to share the following from the same source on why Princess Charlene wore white when meeting with the Pope.

An excerpt:

She is one of seven women in the world that has been given “the privilege of the white” – or the ability to wear white when meeting with the pope.

Called le privilège du blanc in French or il privilegio del biacno in Italian, the special tradition is extended solely to designated Catholic queens and princesses and is usually reserved for important events at the Vatican like private audiences, canonizations, beatifications and special masses.
