Queen Elizabeth meets Pope Francis; Gifts him a bottle of Whiskey
Yes…you read that correctly!
Her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth, met Pope Francis for the first time and brought along a gift bag, which included Whiskey from the family land of Balmoral.
Queen Elizbeth and the Duke of Edinburgh flew from England to Italy for a brief meeting with the Pope. Pope Francis also had a gift for the Royal Family, specifically for the Queen’s great-grandson, Prince George.
While the Queen has had her fair-share of high profile meetings during her reign, this meeting was said to be quite formal and only consisted of the Queen, her husband, the Pope and a translator (Pope Francis doesn’t speak much English).
