Pope meets with Queen Silvia of Sweden

2015-04-27

'Good morning' 
'Good morning' 
'I'm glad to see you'
'Me too. It's a pleasure'

Starting off their conversation in Spanish, Pope Francis welcomed Queen Silvia of Sweden, to the Library of the Vatican's Apostolic Palace. 

The Pope thanked the Queen of Sweden for the role the country plays in welcoming refugees. During their brief meeting the Queen also talked about charitable organizations to help children. 

One by one, members of her delegation greeted the Pope. Among them, was the Queen's daughter, princess Magdalena, who is expecting her second child. Her husband,  Chris O'Neill and first daughter, Leonore were also there. 

Even though she is only one year old, the little girl stole the show. 

As a gift, the Queen gave the Pope three prayer books for children written in Swedish

The Pope gave her a medallion of his pontificate as well as his apostolic exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium. The Queen was born in Germany and so the copy is in German. 

And as always, before leaving, the Pope again asked for prayers. 

'Pray for me'
'Yes, I will.'
