Willem-Alexander and Máxima greet new pope

Prince Willem-Alexander, princess Máxima and prime minister Mark Rutte were among the crowds in St Peter’s Square on Tuesday watching the inauguration of the new pope, Francis I.

After the cermony, the royal couple were presented to the new pope, shaking his hand and exchanging a few words.

Máxima, who comes from Argentina like the pope and is a Catholic, was dressed all in black with her head covered by a black lace mantilla. Willem-Alexander wore white tie and his medals.
