Pope gives 'papal hat' to American Couple

2013-04-11

As a gift, an American couple brought a white papal hat, known as a 'zucchetto' for the Pope. The couple asked the Pope if he could try it on. Cardinal Donald Wuerl, the Archbishop of Washington, who introduced the couple to the Pope, politely said 'No, no he can't do that.'

But a few seconds later, Pope Francis put on the new 'zucchetto,' and gave his other papal hat to the couple.
