Royal Outfit of the Day: January 20

Oh hey look, another white outfit for me to love.
Prince Albert and Princess Charlene visited Pope Francis at the Vatican this week
Granted, privil├Ęge du blanc- the exception from the typical Vatican dress code of black/dark dress for visiting women that allows select few Catholic royal ladies to wear white for their papal audiences - makes this an easy win. Hard to mess this up, particularly with a gorgeous mantilla in the works. And really, the rest of the outfit is pretty much business as usual for Charlene, so perhaps a special accessory and a special occasion might be responsible for elevating this outfit more than anything else. Whatever it is, I'll take it.
(Vatican dress code always brings up a lot of questions, for whatever reason. A few previous discussions for your reference: Pope Francis' inaugural mass, Queen Letizia's first privil├Ęge du blanc appearance, Queen Mathilde's, and the Swedish ladies in black.)
